This is a beautiful place to camp, hike and explore! You need a small trailer, RV or tent though. Big rigs or even 30 footers don't fit. Lots of mining equipment and stamp mill to check out.

We went on a beautiful hike here - great views. Also, if you're interested in mining history, you'll want to check out the visitor's center.

We have camped several times at Plumas Eureka SP and have enjoyed each visit very much. Several hikes are accessible from the area leading to wonderful views or excellent lakes. The museum is small but very interesting as well as the nearby "ghost town". An excellent State Park!

The Plumas Eureka State Park has wonderful little museum, working blacksmith shop, assay office, stamp mill. The hikes from the campground, Jamison Mine, or the Museum parking are varried. Great peaks to climb, or nature trails to follow. Great for the junior ranges too.

This campground is spread out far enough for privacy in most cases, has plenty of shade, free hot showers and flush toilets. Will definitely come back and stay again.

The Plumas-Eureka State Park offers a great museum and wonderful hiking. We found an old mine on one hike and enjoyed an informative free talk about bears at the campground.

This winter there will be x-c trails groomed. a nice loop or out and back. The x-c is new and we're hoping for a good snow year.
