Great spot!

The spots are great and have a picnic table and fire pit provided. Drinkable water and very clean and well kept pit toilets. Manny, the camp host, is great, he keeps a great area and can provide insight on hiking spots and other areas to visit around the area. There is no shortage of swimming holes…

Spanish Creek

Nice campground, water spigot is safe water, they test it every month. Nice camp host, bear box included, neighbors aren’t too close. Cell service is atrocious but that isn’t their fault. Bathrooms had much to be desired. Would camp here again!

Good campground with magical little swimming hole

Hot with limited shade and campsites with little privacy, but this place is all about the swimming hole. The water is clean and inviting, the beach is wide and covered with shake rocks, and the views up the sides of the steep banks are beautiful! We battled meat bees and mosquitos a bit. The camp…

About This Campground

Spanish Creek Campground is located on Highway 70 just east of the Highway 89 intersection; just east of where Banish Creek and Indian Creek merge together to create the east branch of the North Fork Feather River. The campground is right on Spanish Creek with a very popular swimming hole. Although the campground has been recently upgraded, it still holds the charm that it did in years past.

Recreation

Anglers enjoy a healthy supply of rainbow trout in the nearby Feather River, which is within walking distance from the campground. The river and nearby Spanish Creek are also popular for swimming and wading activities.

Facilities

Spanish Creek campground offers several single-family campsites that accommodate both tent and RV camping, however hookups are not available.

Each site is equipped with tables and campfire rings with grills. Vault toilets and drinking water are also provided. A full-service store, gas and phone service is available less than 10 miles away.

Natural Features

This campground is located in the Plumas National Forest, which is attractive to outdoor enthusiasts because of its many streams and lakes, beautiful deep canyons, rich mountain valleys, meadows, and lofty peaks. Spanish Creek is in the Feather River Canyon, at an elevation of 2,000 feet.

Nearby Attractions

Within the Plumas National Forest, Spanish Creek campground is just a few short miles from Indian Falls. This is one attraction not to miss. Some have said that the mist created by the falls resembles a feather -- thus naming the Feather River. Just southeast on Highway 70 from Spanish Creek Campground is the quaint high Sierra town of Quincy. We recommend walking around the town if you get a chance. Very close to the campground is the Butterfly Valley Botanical Area. This is also a neat spot to explore. Before you get to the town of Quincy you will pass the Mount Hough Ranger District - a wonderful stop to discover more information about local area attractions.
