Jul 2012 - $25.00
This is a PG&E campground. We camped here several times during the summer in our 30 foot rig. Most (if not all) sites have a view of Butt Valley Reservoir. This is a "primitive" campground. It has paved roads to the camping sites. It has pit toilets and water is available but there are no hookups. The restrooms were cleaned daily. While there is no formal "equipment" for kids, the roads are safe for bicycles and there is a large beach to play on. One of the big pluses is the slope of the lake bottom. It is so gradual that a person can go out quite a ways from the shore before the water actually gets deep. - Raquel

Tight spaces, restrooms needed cleaning, showers needed new shower curtains, laundry not enough machines for the amount of people. They advertise WiFi but you can only access it at the office and it is spotty. Groups of kids hang out there trying to use their phones. If you needed to do business or want to research the area for activities, restaurants, and such it's best if you do that before your arrival. There is a train track behind the park and two trains run through there in the wee hours of the morning. It is close to Lassen Volcanic National Park and Indian Falls swimming area. The park is split by the hwy with a section on Lake Almanor and an upper and lower section across the hwy. The lake is not only great for boaters. It allows jet skis and wave runners. It also has swimming beaches. They charge an extra $10 for the holiday even though their festivities we're on the weekend and we didn't get there until Monday the 3rd of July. - Graybird

This is an old park, 50 years old, according to manager. The spaces next to the lake do not have sewer hookups, while the spaces across the road do. Not all spaces have 50 amps, be sure to ask. We stayed in #14, which had 50 amps and a cement patio. However, site was so short, patio was not at our door. Also patio was much higher than parking area -- don't run your tires into the edge! Manager was very helpful, the lake is beautiful, and there is a great bike trail on the west side. - renodick

Tight, cramped, camping experience. We camped in lower camp, which has NO sewer connection. Which means you have to store and dump it across the street. No easy task... Why ? Because you have to cross a fast highway with logging trucks jammin full load/speed around a blind corner in front of the RV park entrance/crossing! This is an accident waiting to happen... The old man/staff driving the golf cart around is rude and has a chip on his back. The lower bathrooms are more like an outhouse. For 2 days there was no paper towels or toilet paper in the stalls. If you have jet skis or a speed boat and like to party and drink, I guess this would be the right spot for you. - Cal.Sportsman

The best asset of this park is the staff! Wonderful people who really go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need to have a great time. We were lucky to arrive on a night that they were having a benefit for the Horses Unlimited program for autistic children, so we enjoyed a great meal and two piece band for a great cause! We also were lucky enough to win a couple raffle prizes as well!
The second best asset of this park is the trees! Shade everywhere. The sites are mostly dirt with gravel, but ours was very level. After the weekend the place emptied out to about 1/4 capacity. They have a giant communal fire pit that looked amazing, but no one else was using it so we saved our s'mores for when we got home. The dog park is small (32'x16'), and all dirt, but adequate. Leash rule is very strictly enforced (which is a great thing). Park was always very quiet and relaxing, and if you don't feel like cooking they have a very quaint cafe/store on site that serves breakfast and lunch except on Tuesdays. Satellite TV was a total of 5 channels, 8 if you can do digital.
So why the 7 rating? Two things that were tough for us. While the park is surrounded by things to do and neat towns to explore, everything but hiking is a several miles away, so if you don't have a tow vehicle or a toad you need to break camp if you want to do anything outside the park. The Feather River is only 1/2 mile away by satellite map, but because of the private property in between you must drive several miles to enjoy it.
But by far the biggest deal breaker for us was the fact that cell service is nonexistent (Verizon, at least), and the Internet was as bad as it gets to still be able to call it "available." For my DW that has her own business, and myself that sadly depends on Internet while away from work, we just wouldn't be able to stay here again.
If you want great hospitality and a quiet shady non-connected experience, this is the place for you! - NvLivin

A great camping experience, lots of pine trees and shade. The Park is immaculate, the owners keep the grounds in excellent condition. Gravel and dirt sites, ours was level, full hook up, picnic table, with Wi-Fi and cable TV. Pets are OK, but must be on a leash at all times; dog run. Bathrooms and showers were clean, individual shower stalls with door and dressing area. Owners are very friendly and informative. Park fire pit (campfire) located in safe area. Country store, post office, and Café (breakfast and lunch) on premises. Quiet at night. - zigzag

This is the second time we've stayed here. It's only 1.5 hours from our home and is a great, quick weekend get-away. It's nestled in the pines and is quiet and dark at night (important to us). The managers are always friendly and helpful. - CarrieD

As reviewed before, this is a great campground with large mostly level sites with 50 amp electric and water. We had no trouble finding a site in late July mid-week, but did end up with a lot of sun late in the day. The turn off is 5.5 miles down from CA 36. After making the turn off of 89, the first left is the dump station which also has potable water available, Legacy Campground is the second left. If you are in a big rig you really don't want to go any further down the road unless you have been there before. We took our toad through the North Campground and it is tight, we did not see one site that would work for a large motor home. Going further down there did not appear to be any place to turn a large rig around. Legacy Campground has no over-the-air TV reception and no Internet access with Verizon. We did have marginal cell service coming through as 1X. - Bob and Inga

What a jewel of a U.S. Forest Service campground! Whoever designed this one deserves a prize! Electric hookups & water. A dump station is nearby for $5 fee. Big pine trees and large, level sites with picnic table and fire rings! Clean bathrooms. - Victori

Rate reflects a Senior Pass 50% discount. Very large, level, paved sites, mostly back-ins. Extremely easy access for big rigs. Very strong 50 amp power. Low water pressure--around 35 PSI. The sites are well-separated, although you can see the rigs in a dozen other sites from your site. Very slow 3G/1x Verizon data signal, good Verizon voice service. The sign from Highway 89 says "Almanor Campground". This same road takes you past Almanor Legacy campground to Almanor North and Almanor South (neither of which have any hookups) and the boat launch and public beach. This campground is about a one mile walk from the lake on an excellent bike path. Nicely forested, enough so we couldn't get Dish Network on our rooftop dish (in Site #10), although it is possible from other sites. We arrived around noon on a Thursday and got the next to last site available. No reservations at this campground. There are only 14 sites in Almanor Legacy campground. The web site says that there are 104 sites, but that includes the nearby Almanor North and Almanor South campgrounds. It's a great campground, especially for big rigs who want 50 amp power. We looked at the pay dump station on the way out, and it looked clean and easy to navigate. We had an outstanding, if expensive, dinner on the deck of the nearby Plumas Lake Resort restaurant--prime rib, pecan-crusted halibut, etc. You can get to it by continuing down the Almanor Campground road toward the lake. It's less than a mile away. They have a nice bar as well. - Denali

We camped at Lake Haven Resort last year. The spots were very small and hard to get into. Has a very small lawn area for the kids to play on. Was quite a walk to the water on rocks. Will not go back to pay $60/night for cramped camping. - uptownmommy

This is a hidden gem, especially for California. It is one of the most beautiful parks in the CA state park system. Jameson Creek runs right through the middle of the campground and the views of the surrounding mountains are incredible. There are no hookups, but there are flush restrooms and nice new shower facilities which are kept clean. The park also has a great museum and you can tour the old mine/stamp mill site. Very nice rangers on site. Take the time to explore the nearby towns of Graeagle, Portola, and Blairsen. They are California unspoiled. Also, the Lakes Basin area is truly a natural wonder. Frazier Falls is worth the 1.5 mile hike. If you want to dine out, don't miss Gumbas in Blairsden. They have great pizza, friendly staff, and VERY family friendly! The ONLY drawbacks to Plumas Eureka are the lack of hookups and a lot of the spaces are difficult to maneuver in to. I wouldn't recommend it for rigs over 25 feet. If you don't camp there, at least take the time to visit the park! - campingwithourboys

The park lies in a ponderosa pine forest. Most of the sites are well shaded as a result. We arrived on a Sunday and stayed for 3 nights. I'd estimate that the park was 80-90% occupied- sort of. More than half of the RVs were not occupied at the time as most must pay a seasonal rate, leave their coach set up and come to the park when they want to get away. The park provides a large unfenced mowed dog area. Leashes required everywhere except in the dog area. The staff is friendly and grounds are very clean. A small store is located at the entrance as is the office. Access to and from the park is very tight. Low fences and gates, 10 foot wide curved drives divided by treed islands make maneuvering interesting. The entrance/exit street just past the office is only wide enough for one rig and is guarded by big pines. That can create a problem if one rig is coming and another going. All the interior streets are fairly narrow one way but paved. Campers are lead to their camp by the staff which is a good thing since finding one's camp site could be confusing. Satellite TV reception not probable in most site for the trees. Satellite dishes other than coach mounted are frowned on. Provided cable TV is adequate. Our site was gravel and fairly level as are most sites. Our site had less shade than most- the late afternoon shade was welcome in 90+ degree weather. We found most sites were spacious but not private. - jilnmike

We have been traveling via RV for 20 years. This is the most congested and difficult to access park that we have ever experienced. The try to pack In as many rigs as possible. We were here over a three day weekend and I dreamed of having a dry camp space at any Walmart. What a joke. The 'guide" who helped us negotiate into our way too small spot caused us close to $1K damage on our rig. He was either dyslexic or blind. This place tries to maximize how you can get 10 pounds of stuff into a 5 pound bag. Sorry to say, it did not work for us. This place was designed for tiny rigs with no slides. The supposed WiFi was never working. The power was below acceptable levels for any campground. They collect top dollar for substandard sites. We will NEVER consider going to this place again! - Cathy.Cook

This park has eight full hookup sites (30 amp) and eight cabins. Roads and sites are dirt and rather narrow. Each site has a picnic table. Old carpets have been laid where your door opens to keep the dust down. Getting in to your site can be difficult due to pine trees. With a 35 ft 5th wheel it took a lot of maneuvering to get in to our site; very few sites could handle a larger rig. We were fortunate not to have any neighbors during our week long stay, but if the park were full it would feel pretty tight. Lots of shade from the pine trees which means satellite service is difficult. Park Wi-Fi worked very well and that was a good thing because we only had 1X Verizon signal, just enough to make phone calls. The park has access to Lake Almanor and a boat dock one block away. The road to the park is lightly traveled and the park is very peaceful. This park is very rustic, not fancy at all. - Metamorphosis Road

We enjoyed our stay. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The site was quiet and away from the road. We would surely return. - matt666

We stayed here for 6 days. The park managers were very friendly and work with campers to make their stay the best experience possible. We arrived in the area a day earlier than expected and were able stay in a vacant site for the night. We liked the park, people and town so much we were able to stay in our space for an extra night.
The restrooms and showers are spotless, sites are cleaned as soon as the occupant leaves and . The grounds are well maintained and the whole park reflects pride of ownership and the attitude of the staff. Walking distance to town on a walking trail. Sites vary in size to accommodate small units to large class A RVs. We had no trouble with our 38 ft. 5th wheel. Will return. - JohnG3

Stayed in early July. This is an amazing RV park. It is very close to town so walking to restaurants and shopping was easy. The park is very pet friendly (no charge). There are hiking and biking trails next to the park . The staff was very friendly and informative about the area and helpful in locating our trailer on the lot. There are lots of trees and the sites are very big. The bathrooms are amazing and had fresh flowers. Golf is close by and the park is very quiet. We will stay here again and again. - Mark R
