Plumas-Eureka State Park
Ranked #2 of 11 things to do in Graeagle
Attraction details
Reviewed 29 August 2013

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 attraction is at night when the universe we live in is so readily apparent. Astronomy buffs from all over come to take advantage of the clear skies and lack of light pollution. A lot of easy hiking nearby in the lakes basin and the challenges of the Sierra Buttes for the more adventurous. Campground is at 5200' so it does go down into the forties at night and hydration is a real consideration in this dry climate.

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.

Stayed there two nights, had a wonderful spot next to the stream. Very clean park. It was a really nice quite campground. Had some nice hikes right out of the campground.

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.
