Frenchman Campground is on a peninsula at the southern end of Frenchman Lake in the Plumas National Forest. Frenchman Lake is 11 miles north of Highway 70 and another 6 miles west of Highway 395. The 4-mile-long lake is a popular destination for fishing, hunting, boating, waterskiing, jet skiing, swimming, and mountain biking. A boat launch ramp is located adjacent to the campground.
Frenchman Campground has 38 campsites which can accommodate RVs, trailers, and tents.
Pine trees provide moderate to good shade in most sites. Some sites offer a view of the lake. Reservations can be made, but reservatiions for many sites are non-specific, meaning that a specific site will be assigned upon arrival. Others are kept as first-come, first served sites.
General Camping Information
Opening and closing dates of campgrounds are only estimates, usually dependent on snow conditions. Not all campsites can accommodate trailers or RVs of all lengths. Check carefully on the reservation website when you make your reservation to be sure your vehicle will fit your campsite.
In order to prevent the spread of invasive insects, obtain firewood from the local area of the campground.
Designated Accessible sites are usually reserved for people with disabilities who have a vehicle displaying an accessible parking placard or license plate
