well.....ItsAGS has done a LOT of footwork apparently every good campground under 6500 feet is closed on the primary weekend. Grounds over 7k feet will be COLD AS BALLS and may require traversing in snow.

I am calling Plumas NF and the Feather River Ranger Dist. tomorrow AM to determine what grounds will be open.

I should know more then and will post our event location by Thursday afternoon.

How's about this place.

It's Three Lakes which is near Buck Lake in the Plumas National Forest.

The Plumas NF ares is generally at 4-5k'. Thus we should be able to stay generally dry, warm, and have lots of options for riding dirt or street.

I called the ranger at Plumas NF and right now, only 3 grounds will remain open for sure, but more may stay open assuming there is no snow accumulation.

I will keep my eye on this site and keep track of what sites will be avail.
Plumas NF Recreation Status
http://www.fs.usda.gov/recmain/plumas/recreation

Right now, no sites will have water. At all. So, we are roughing it a bit this year.
Deanes Valley

Snake Lake
Gold Lake

So, plan on the event taking place in the Plumas Nat'l forest. A final location will be selected based on on whats open.

The upside is that the camping will likely be FREE!!!!

Gimpy is lame I don't want to hang out with him. I'll show up for the rest of you nice folks, though.

I like the idea of the remote location- more so the better.`89o0l;

I'm also too lazy to read the thread right now, so what is the status of getting to have fires?

Oh yeah, the boss, the baby, and the mutts will be in attendance. If I get lucky, I'll bring the 450 and look at it longingly.

Last year Hollywood did a stellar job of protecting Gimpy from the killer raccoons, so we should be very safe. HA!

EDIT #2. Well, it looks like the boss won't be able to make it either weekend, so I'll be either running with the Cujo and his brother and possibly little man. Let me know if I need to bring the camper and it can easily handle the cooking duties and I think the battery can last a day or so for the fridge.

Depending on how much of an "Adventure" ride you want to make it, the 4x4 camp at Gold Lake is stunning.



However, it's not an easy ride to get into. I also don't think I can get the camper in there- the Jeep no problem, but the camper without a pintle hitch, might get mangled. I made it in on the GS with bald Tourances, but did fall down once (like that is a surprise) and it is a full on rock garden the whole way in.

It is free camping with now facilities other than outhouses.

I've heard the other campground at Gold Lake is nice, but will probably have other folks there.

Gold Lake ?

I'd assume we not do the 4x4 campground for those who drive in. Maybe I'll just drive up and bring my table, extra chair or 3, cooking supplies so we have a stove and whatnot.

ok.....just note:

Gold Lake at an elevation of 6400 feet. This campground has 37 sites. Fire rings, vault toilets and garbage service is provided. There is no water or tables.

That's at 1,500 higher than Calaveras big trees. That's definitely near snow country that time of year.

I won't be able to join you but visited Snake Lake earlier this summer. The lake is covered with Lilly pads and is probably pretty swallow. The campground has horse corrals so people with horse trailers have no issue getting in and it is no problem for bikes. Dirt roads take off from the campground. They have some tables and there was water in the summer- don't know about now. They say moderate use but no one was there when I visited on a Saturday. There is no fee!
Just something else to consider or at least look at if you are in the general area. Its a cool road going into it.

My "In" is down to a "hopefully"

My sister had an accident resulting in an exploded knee. She is requiring 24/7 assistance which none if us can afford, so other sis and I are playing tag team here in Fresno. My attendance at FC will depend on how the recovery is going, and whose turn it is in the barrel. Prob be a last minute decision for me
