The Wild Rose is a large, flat site, on the corner of our family's private 50-acre property. Nearby is the treehouse, zip line, creek, swimming hole, and a private outdoor hot shower. Spend your evening BBQ-ing in the covered kitchen overlooking 500 acres of National Forest and enjoying the s'mores on the propane firepit, or a pack a picnic for nearby Lake Almanor or Round Valley Lake. 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!

Important rules: 

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.

Our family had a wonderful time the past few days! We stayed in the Wild Rose Site. Everything was clean and ready for us! We appreciated all of the extra amenities that make camping with kids easier- such as fresh water jugs, extra blankets, night lights, etc. We went to a few swimming holes in the creek to cool off. Our kids really enjoyed playing on the zip line and game tipi.

We had read about the Dixie Fire, but were not prepared to see how deeply the town of Greenville was effected. We love to support local, so we headed into town to eat at the food trucks for lunch one day. We enjoyed our Region Burgers and iced coffee as well!

We definitely plan to be back! Thank you for sharing your beautiful property!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Wild Plumas! Such an amazing piece of property! The property is beautiful, clean, safe, and quiet. On our trip, the meadow was full of wildflowers and was absolutely magnificent. I enjoyed watching the dear in the meadow each morning. The kids really loved hiking up Wolf Creek. It's the perfect mountain creek, clean, cold, and refreshing. The kids also loved the treehouse, zip-line, tepee, swings, and bikes for kids to borrow. When we arrived, our tent exceeded our expectations! It looked even better than the pictures on their website! The port-a-potty was perhaps the biggest surprise of all. It looked like a brand new port-a-potty! I don't think it had ever been used before!

As soon as we arrived we were greeted by the camp host, Mary Kay. She told us how to work the shower and the firepit, and offered any assistance we might need. After that initial greeting, she left us alone, and was only a text message away if needed. These people, the owners and the host, have put a lot of work into this property and have taken great care in providing a quality experience for campers. I highly recommend Wild Plumas! We will return with more family and friends!

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!
