32 RV Parks near Blairsden, California
Jul 2018 - $50.00
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 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 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

Helpful and friendly staff. They will assist you in locating your site and parking your Rig. We enjoyed the beauty of the area and appreciated the cleanliness of the Park. The Park was shaded by the impressive Ponderosa pine trees. Since it was fire season, be could not build an open fire, but was allowed charcoal or propane cooking. The WIFI signal was strong and cable had a good variety of channels. We will stay again. - NVfaiella

This park is under new ownership and is going through a lot of renovations. The new owners are a young couple and are working very hard to upgrade everything. The owners father also is involved and is a good fixit man. When the water spigot and my hose wouldn't connect correctly he came right away and tried to make it work. Unfortunately he messed up my hose in the process but he found a work around and then replaced my hose with a brand new one. - boss49

We chose this park due to the "9" ratings. After we arrived, I noted that the ratings are 5 years old. I will give the pros and cons here. PLEASE NOTE: the park has just been sold and the new owners have many plans to upgrade this park. New owner gentleman was so super helpful and friendly, a can do guy. They are going to add more sites, remodel the laundry room, partition off the full time area, add bocce ball and other rec opportunities. Also, they will build some cabins, which will be a wonderful addition.
PROS: The setting is gorgeous. We camped under the pines with 30 amp hook up, water and sewer. You could be fooled into thinking you are in a national park. You are surrounded by the forest. There is a nice walk through the forest behind the camp. It was quiet, set up off the main highway. Fire pits and picnic tables. We used site 26 which was very spacious with lots of privacy. The owner guided us to our site and helped us settle in.
You are so close to the Lakes Basin, where we did some great hiking. Also good food in Graeagle and Blairsden. The wi fi worked mostly well and there was a good cable channel lineup which also worked well.
CONS: The laundry room was filthy and only one washer worked, no dryers worked. We used a clothesline at our campsite to dry clothes. The rec room was locked so we did not see what was in there. The full timers: excuse me for saying this, but the area looks trashy. Someone living in a school bus there, for example. The new owners plan to section off this area with a fence and give them their own access road. We will check this park out again in a year or so. I do believe that the new ownership is earnest in their intent to fix it up and make it a lovely stay. So, check it out!
By the way, there is a lovely dry camping campground here as well. - Barbara Lee Tondro

Our site was nice, level gravel. Water pressure good, electrical voltage good and steady. Sewer hookup is located well for gravitational flow but you will need a hose that is longer than 10 feet. Owners were friendly and very proud of the cable and satellite TV hook ups but we could not get ours to work. We watched CBS and ABC from our bat wing antenna. Verizon cell and Wi-Fi signal (3G only) was good. A nice, quiet location in tall pines with plenty of shade. Not a destination resort, but a nice clean, well-run spot to park and venture out in the area to see the sights. We will definitely stay here again. - Nevadatripin

We are happy to report that there has been a change in ownership of this park and all previous issues have been addressed and corrected that I wrote about in my previous comments in July 2006. The park is now owned by those that know what it takes to create a wonderful experience for their guests. We spent several nights last month and the park was very clean and the grounds look refreshed!
They have done an outstanding job clearing dead and over grown trees, upgrading the laundry and game rooms and the general appearance of the grounds are now appealing. The bathrooms and showers were clean. The owners are very friendly and informative.
The eviction of some of the year round riff raff has increased a sense of safety for you and your family. The pool is a delight as it's the only RV park in the area with one!
Feather River RV Park has become the best park in the area. I highly recommend this park for weekend and seasonal campers. - Coastalview

We love Feather River now that it is under new ownership, it's like an entirely different place. It's clean, fun, safe, and the people are so friendly. This doesn't count the pool. For our family the pool is a huge plus. I would 100% recommend this camp ground to anyone. - Sam Nolan

We have been seasonal campers at this park for over 12 years and have always enjoyed ourselves. We agree that there were issues with all of the previous owners but the park is now owned by a wonderful family that have invested more time and money in the last 6-8 months than all the other owners combined. We spent our first night of the season a couple of weekends ago and the park was as clean as I have ever seen it. The have done an awesome job taking out dead and dying trees, updating the laundry and game rooms, lowered the price for bigger bundles of wood and evicted some of the year round riff raff. The pool is ready to go and we can't wait to start our camping season. Feather River is easily the best value, most natural looking park in the area. I highly recommend this park for both weekend and seasonal campers. Stop by site #25 when you're there. - Dave and Cindy

This is a campground we visit often and we love it here. The park hosts and the employees who work at the park are all so friendly and helpful. The site we were in this time was not near the river (because we got a new rig and it's too big for the sites near the river) but was absolutely beautiful just the same. We visited the first weekend they opened for the season and they had everything set up (ping pong, corn hole, horse-shoes, etc) for the campers enjoyment. I hate to tell people about this campground as it's a best kept secret, but it's such a nice place I have to give the park kudos. If you just want to get away for some peace and quiet, this is the place. If you want to get out an explore a bit, there are many lakes and sites to see nearby - all within a short drive from the park. This visit we focused on the railways and numerous cool bridges in the area as well as the waterfalls and rivers that were gushing with water this time of year. So beautiful! - ORF

Great Park in a beautiful setting. Spacious sites. Wifi was intermittent. - Maltaman

We have used this park for the past nine (9) years at least 3-5 trips per season. They changed ownership in 2017. With new management things started to change. Long gone is management that cares to make your stay comfortable. Gone are a reliable wifi internet, weed cleaned dog park, or any of several attributes which has caused us to return each year. The ownership lives in San Francisco and the management is seasonal. Your desires for a generalized site location are ignored to maximize occupancy. So, after nine years, we are gone. - Long Path

This is one of several Forest Svc. campgrounds along the shore of Lake Davis, but the only one that really has sites large enough for anything more than a pop-up tent trailer. The roads are not particularly wide, and many of the sites are short or have very narrow access. We've found a few we like and I will attach photos of some of them. Bathrooms have flush toilets and running water and are kept clean daily. Showers are coin-operated and often get very busy. Fresh water spigots are scattered around the campground. Fire pits and picnic tables are in good shape. Hosts come around often and will enforce noise rules and vehicle parking and limits. Campground is beautiful with large pines, plenty of shade, and easy lake access for kayaks and other small boats. There is a fee dump station just outside the camp entrance. Sites that we noted as large enough for our 25' trailer: Loop 1: 9, 16, 17, 24; Loop 2: NONE; Loop 3: 60, 62. - Labs
