Yellow Creek Campground
Yellow Creek Campground is on the banks of Yellow Creek in the Humbug Valley 8 miles southwest of Lake Almanor. The area is best known for its great trout fishing and beautiful scenery. Over recent years PG&E, CalTrout, the California Department of Fish and Game, and the Dye Creek Cattle Company have worked to restore wild trout habitat in the valley. Check special California fishing regulations for the area before casting in your line.
Yellow Creek Campground has 11 campsites shaded by soaring Ponderosa pines. All the sites can accommodate RVs, trailers, and tents. Some of the sites are along the stream while others are set back among the trees. There is no garbage service, so campers are asked to pack out everything they bring in. All the campsites are first-come, first-served.
