Fall colors are decent w/ aspen groves nearby. There is no pavement at this primitive style campground (as Erik shows in his photo). Located right on the (no so busy) Oro-Quincy highway, just a few miles west of Bucks Lake. 2019, The Oro-Quincy Hwy has been closed (from Lake Oroville to Bucks Lake), since early 2017 due to landslide.
Nice new picnic tables. Good location forested campground NFS, easy access off Oro-Quincy Highway (which has been closed since 2017, due to landslide). Coming in the back way from Bucks Lake, you'll likely have the whole place to yourself.
New bear boxes for proper food storage. Tent camping here is just awesome. No swimming, as this is a residential water supply for the mountain community below. Warning: this camp is built adjacent to a rock dam. Dirt road access to the camp, small sign at turn off; Summer weekend w/ just a few people. Best hiking trails into Bucks Lake Wilderness. Mini Gold Lake (2 mile hike) & PCT access.
