Yellow Creek Campground, Lake Almanor, No. California

Yellow Creek Campground

PG&E DeSabla \ Lake Almanor Area

Getting to this remote little campground is not for the faint of heart.  RVs are not recommended.  The campground is about 10 miles, on a graveled logging road, from Hwy 89 south of Chester, California.  Campground fans like to remove road signs to keep it a secret.

All eleven sites are first-come-first-served.  There is a pay station in the campground.  A host sells firewood and keeps the water tank filled during the summer months. 

Yellow Creek is known for its world-class fly-fishing.  The campground, shaded by tall pines, and on the banks of this creek, overlooks the beautiful Humbug Valley.  There is a sacredness to this valley once inhabited by the Maidu Indians.  Maidu organizations still watch over the area to protect their heritage and artifacts.  You are welcome to take all the photos you want.  But PLEASE do not take anything else out of this beautiful area.
