    Overview

    Gold Lake 4x4 campground in northeast Plumas County, CA lies at 6,400 feet in elevation within the Plumas National Forest. The mountains, forest and lake setting provide a picturesque landscape for relaxation, adventure and exploration. A popular location with access to the backcountry, visitors should carefully review what this facility provides. This campground is not a luxury destination and may not meet your comfort level. This is a rustic campground with no utilities, water, hookups, trash service, or restroom facilities. Campers must pack out all their sanitation and trash. Families may decide one of the other campgrounds nearby is better suited to meet their needs and expectations. Visitors staying at the 4x4 campground will be within the Lakes Basin Recreation Area that requires camping within developed campsites. For those seeking a more dispersed experience, campers must ensure they are well outside the boundaries of the recreation area. The Lakes Basin & Sierra Buttes Map illustrates where boundaries and forest roads are found. These maps are available at the USGS Store online or from Plumas National Forest Offices.

    Bowman Lake Campground is a very remote campground with limited services. There are 7 campsites with tables, fire rings and bear proof food lockers. There is no trash service. Bowman Lake is a large lake surrounded by rocky cliffs and scattered pines that are great for fishing and swimming. A few islands are found within the lake. Car top boat launch only. The road to access the campground is very rough, rocky, and narrow. A high clearance vehicle is needed, and towing boats or trailers is very difficult and dangerous. There are several stretches of the road where it is impossible for two vehicles to pass around each other and so if traffic is coming from both directions, someone will need to back up. Despite the difficult access, Bowman Lake is a popular, heavily used area.

    Everstoke - Camping & Glamping MTB park... by a brewery in the amazing Lost Sierra!

    Blairsden-Graeagle, California

    Everstoke is a mountain biker's paradise, with 8 tent / van / trailer campsites available and several of miles of really fun, hand built singletrack, including LOTS of challenging features on our 91 acres… and we've got lots more trail to build!

    In addition to campsites, we also have an awesome "tiny home" for those more into the comforts of "glamping". It has a master private bedroom (queen bed), and two lofts that have a queen on one loft and two twin beds on the other loft. It has a fully stocked kitchen, private bathroom with flushing toilet, shower and sink. An AC/heat unit keeps temps exactly how you like them.

    Regular campers have access to running water, a flushing toilet, a community kitchen area (grills, tables and some cooking/eating utensils), in addition to a community campfire ring, two "cool down" tubs to soak in, and a fun bike skills area at the base of Everstoke.

    Everstoke is located in the heart of the Lost Sierra. We're a short walk away from the beloved Brewing Lair, and super close to other world class riding and hiking trails in Lakes Basin, Downieville, Quincy (Mt. Hough), Mills Peak, and Beckworth Peak.

    How it all started: https://youtu.be/m4mXy08wOFI?si=GzBrMGHt3qWmciJl

    How it is evolving… and so much more to come! https://www.youtube.com/@mtbingadventures1551/videos

    We had Starlink hooked up, but cell coverage for all carriers is so strong at Everstoke, Starlink is not really needed.
