Last Chance Campground, Chester, CA

Last Chance Campground has one loop that is used for group reservations.  Call PG&E to make reservations.

The other sites are first-come-first-served.

Last Chance Campground is a little more remote than other PG&E campgrounds in the area.  The turn-off is just north of Chester, CA.  Travel 4 miles on a gravel road to get there.

It’s a popular site for hunters…and the more traditional campers.

One workamper (single or couple) has a site with water and sewer hookup.  You have electricity when the generator is running to pump water into the campground tank.

Entry 4 for May 2007

Last Chance Campground, 4 miles off Hwy 36 near Chester, and Yellow Creek Campground, 9 miles off Hwy 89, are our more remote campgrounds. Last Chance has 25 campsites, half of which may be reserved for group camping via PG&E. Although it is not far off the highway, it seems more remote because the access road is not paved. The campground is not on the lake, so you don’t have the noise of boaters and jet skis. There is a creek running through the campground that feeds into Lake Almanor. This is a beautiful little, heavily wooded campground with lots of wildlife.
