Yellow Creek Campground, Humbug Valley, No Cal

I had some photos of the campgrounds we worked in over the years in Kodak Gallery.  Kodak Gallery was sold to Shutterfly over a year ago and I’ve neglected to make the neccessary changes.  In order to have control over where my photos were stored, I’ve decided to create a post for each campground.

This is Yellow Creek Campground in the Humbug Valley of Northern California; just outside of Chester.

I’m not sure how much has changed since the Chips fire tore through in 2012.  These pix are from 2008.

The campground is small (12 sites).  One of those sites is a Host site.  The host has water and sewer hookup.  There is a generator for pumping water into the campground water tank.  The host has electricity when the generator is running.

Soda Springs Historic Site about a half mile from the Yellow Creek Campground. Carbonated water bubbles up right out of the ground!  The historic marker tells the history of the Humbug Valley.  Another hundred yards toward the campground you will see another spring. On the other side of road are flat rocks with holes. These holes are where the Maidu Indians used the rocks to grind acorns into flour.
