We had a reservation to stay in a cabin at Camp Layman, nearby. Check-in was at 3pm so we had time to kill. Our group was four adults, an infant and six children, ages 3 to 10. We decided to meet at noon at Plumas-Eureka State Park to have a picnic lunch. After lunch, we visited the historic sites, staffed... More

Nice mountain to visit and play and relax in. It has many lakes to swim, fish, and kayak in. Trails for exploring and boy, the majestic scenery. Old mining town nestled up in the thick pine forest. There are golf courses, wine bars, nice restaurants near by. It's tranquil, relaxing, and so much to do for everyone. You can easily... More

This was my first visit and it's a lovely spot. We met our Audubon group for a birding outing. It was a perfect spot. It was beautiful, full of wildflowers, and many birds to see. It was a really easy walk around the park.

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. The museum is small but interesting. Lots of trails to enjoy. The small town of Johnsville is 100 yards away from the museum... More

Camp by Jamison Creek or high up on the mountain. Fish, hike, or pan for gold. Sites available for motor homes which spoil the natural beauty of the place.

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.

This park has a lot of really cool campsites - especially on the perimeters. Great hikes - the lakes trail goes right from the campground, Jameson creek - put your river shoes on and go right up the creek that runs through the campground, Eureka Peak trail is a short drive away with rewarding vistas at the top. The big... More

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!
