Lakes Basin Campground
Lakes Basin Campground is in the Lakes Basin Recreation Area of the Plumas National Forest, 12 miles southeast of Graeagle. Visitors to the lake enjoy hiking, fishing, boating, mountain biking, horseback riding, swimming, and windsurfing. Lakes Basin Campground is located near tiny Grass Lake, a short distance off the Gold Lake Highway and a mile by trail west of Long Lake. Trails connect many of the lakes to one another.
Lakes Basin Campground has 23 single campsites and one double site spread through a forest of fir and aspens. Large granite boulders dot the area. The campground includes a Group Campsite. Most sites will accommodate RVs, trailers and tents. However, no RVs are allowed at the group site or at tent-only sites 10, 13, and 22. Sites 10 and 22 can only have 1 vehicle. Some sites are first-come, first served, but most may be reserved. After mid-September dry camping is allowed and no camping fee is collected.
