Children and leashed dogs are always welcome! You can view more photos and adventures on Facebook and Instagram at @WildPlumas.
Please note: Our community was severely affected by the Dixie Fire. Although you can't tell from within our property, the nearby area was heavily burnt, as well as the nearby town of Greenville. During your stay, you may hear the sounds of Greenville as the town rebuilds (1.5 miles away)- we thank you for your patience, and especially for your ongoing support!
Your reservation includes four people and one car. Additional people can be added for $10 per night. Not sure your plans? We get it! If you need to cancel your reservation, we allow✨no-fee✨re-booking, with no time limit.
The Wild Rose is located at the base of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, just an hour from Lassen National Park, Lakes Basin, and over a million acres of National Forest. The Wild Rose is a short walk from several spring-fed swimming holes, and it overlooks the meadows and creeks of the property. Simple but comfortable, the Bell Tent offers 220' of floor space, and offers one queen-size bed (with bedding), with plenty of room for additional sleeping bags on the floor. Outside the tent is a covered picnic table, BBQ, and several additional shaded tent sites. Nearby is an outdoor shower (with hot water)-- offering an on-demand water heater and a view of the Sierra Nevada range. There is also a small treehouse (and zip line) where more adventurous guests are welcome to sleep.
The Wild Rose is secluded, but not "middle-of-nowhere-secluded." Usually, the loudest sounds are the geese, but campers may also hear the train, or sounds from the town of Greenville (two miles downstream). There is also a shooting range about five miles away and some days you may hear noises from that. Otherwise, there are quite a few hike-in meditation or yoga bluffs where you will feel like a world away! The property borders over 500 acres of National Forest that you may also explore, and several secluded swimming holes.
Your host family has enjoyed building lots of activities for their own children, which campers may use at their own risk- including a 50' zip line from a treehouse and a ninja warrior obstacle course. You are welcome to bring your pets, but we try to limit our impact on wild animals such as deer and rabbits, so please keep your pups on a leash.
Activities in the area: Fishing or boating at nearby Lake Almanor, or Round Valley Lake, is always popular. We also highly recommend a visit to Mount Lassen National Park (one hour).
If you have any questions about other nearby activities, feel free to reach out to us! Otherwise, many of our campers enjoy the simple things- a lawn chair with a good book in the creek, or watching the kids make little pots out of the clay in the pond. Safety first, but we always encourage adventure, playing in the mud, and free-range children. The Wild Rose may not have wifi, and we promise you will never be bored!
1.) Arrive by 9 p.m- our roads are not lit and an early arrival ensures you will safely find your site (and not disturb others)
2.) Leave your generators and drones at home
3.) No smoking or wood fires allowed anywhere on the property
4.) Make sure ALL adults and dogs in your group are registered with Hipcamp so they fall under their insurance policy.
Was Wild Plumas affected by the Dixie Fire? Yes and no. Our property was not affected, but the nearby town of Greenville was. The grocery store still stands but the rest of town is mostly gone. There is a lot of destruction and cleanup, but no safety concerns for our guests (ask us how to find the beautiful murals painted on many of the buildings!) Thank you for supporting the businesses that survived!
Are extra people ok, and is there a charge? Four adults are included in your reservation, and there is no charge for any number of children. Additional adults are $10/night, just add them in the checkout process. Any questions, just message me, we can work it out when you get here.
Check-in and check-out times: Are 3:00 pm and 10:00 am. Thank you for checking out promptly. We are booked back to back and it does take a few hours to clean the sites. (we only have one staff person for housekeeping so we're on a tight schedule on checkout days).
Is there an extra cost for animals or vehicles? There is a $20 pet fee for dogs ($20 per reservation, regardless of days or the number of pets). We love your dogs and encourage you to bring them, but it does create considerable extra work for us in order to make sure the next guest has a pet-free experience. You can add this fee in the 'add-on' section at check out.
How far are the swimming holes from the tent? About a 5-minute walk.
How many people can the camp sleep? Two in the Queen bed, one or two kids in the twin, and comfortably 2-3 more on the floor (in their own sleeping bags). There is plenty of room for additional tents.
Are large groups permitted? For sure! We have hosted up to 50! Just message us for group ideas.
How do I store food? In your car only.
Do I need to worry about bears in the Wild Rose Camp? You should always be cautious of bears, and do not invite them by leaving food outside of your vehicle. We have never had a violent incident with a bear, but they may take advantage of trash or food left outside.
Any other questions or concerns we are just a message away! Thank you for your interest and we look forward to hosting you this summer.

Camping with children
Great spot for our young family. The treehouse was so fun. Not to mention our kids loved the swing by our campsite. The wild rose site made for an easy set up and plenty of space. Beautiful property!
We had a great time! The kids loved the zip line, swings, and tipi. Having a shower was a huge plus! The camp host was friendly and available for any questions. My brother and his family stayed at Wolf creek site, also amazing; however, my only suggestion is a better pathway to bring your items to the camp site from the parking. Creek and swimming hole was awesome!
Relaxing and beautiful!
We loved every minute of our stay here! It’s well-cared for and beautiful. My kids absolutely loved the tree house, zip line, and teepee. We spent time at the creek as well. We thoroughly enjoyed the family of deer that would make their way through the area. It was a little chilly and they even provided us with extra blankets. I highly recommend staying here ☺️
Group camping for the win!!!
I was honored to be able to rent out all the glamp sites and host a yoga retreat at Wild Plumas. The hosts are amazing and very knowledgeable. We all sat around the camp fire while Josie and Dan educated us on the property, nature and the local indigenous people. They have done an amazing job with all the glamp sites and the grass area by the tippee was my favorite. The creek with the swimming hole was a group favorite. The water is so fresh and clean. It was an exceptional weekend retreat and I can’t wait to go back again!!!
Perfect nature break!
A gorgeous camp with welcoming and hospitable hosts. Even with the colder nights, we were comfortable in the tent with some extra blankets and enjoyed the evening under the stars with the propane fire pit. We’d love to come back in warmer weather and enjoy more of the property, but we had the perfect nature break. We actually had family in both the wolf creek and wild rose sites and would stay in either again!
The Wild Rose- site #1 is very neat and clean and it has a homey atmosphere. The tent has more than enough space for me and my 2 friends. Bed is comfortable as well as the sofa. Everything inside the tent is coordinated, The covered outdoor dining area is perfect place to hang out while preparing food. they also provide grill, and gas fire pit. There is a hot shower as well. Each site has designated "porta potty", so we did not have to share it others.
My friends and I enjoyed our stay, even though we only stayed one night instead of 2, it was a short and sweet get away. and we were very relaxed and recharged. We stayed up late waited for the stars to come out however due to poor air quality because of new fire from nearby area, we were only able to see the moon.
Josie (owner) is very nice, she made sure we have everything we need. She responds to inquiry right away. she updated me about the fire situation in the area.
We have plans of coming back and try the other sites. We highly recommended wild plumas to our other friends and they love the pictures we took and posted in facebook.
Thank you Josie for being so accommodating and for making sure we have what we needed. .
We loved staying at the wild Rose Bell campsite!! It was very peaceful and relaxing. The tent was very spacious and the outdoor kitchen was on point for cooking. My nephews had a blast with the zip line, hammock and swing. So if you have kid they will love it too! The water hole at this site was a little low but the host Eric invited us to explore the rest of the sites and property, we hit one of the other water hole which had more water and where our nephews and my husband had a blast. The property is gorgeous and nice kept trails. The outhouse is very well kept. The outdoor shower tho, is like nothing we have ever experienced. Private and relaxing (did i mention it has hot water like...whaaat!) My husband and I loved the outdoor shower. The owner Josie email us local waterholes and lakes near by. Sadly we didn't get to visit them all. But we sure took advantage of having Lassen National Park close by and head there to explore. Very beautiful! On our way up (to the campsite) we sure notice a fire going on. Mary kay (host) went to the site and updated us on the (fire) situation going on. We appreciated that updated. If you are ever glamping (like my husband calls it) at the Wild Rose Bell don't forget to look up at the sky at night and you'll be mesmerized at the beautiful sky that the night offers. We loved it! Overall staying at the Wild Rose Bell was wonderful, we truly recommended! Thanks for having us!

P.S. take bug repellent specially for mosquitoes they hit hard towards the night!
