The Moonlight Fire in Plumas County is awesome to watch (from a safe distance). This is last night’s sunset from Rocky Point Campground. The fire makes beautiful cloud formations. No threat to any of our campgrounds (Ponderosa, Cool Springs, Yellow Creek, Last Chance, Rocky Point or Camp Conery).

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.
