Strawberry Campground sits at the eastern end of Sly Creek Reservoir, set back among the trees in the Plumas National Forest. The campground is operated by South Feather Water & Power. The reservoir is known for its sparkling, turquoise water. Visitors enjoy boating, swimming, and fishing. Paddlers in canoes and kayaks are especially drawn to this lake. There is a 5 MPH speed limit on the Strawberry branch of the reservoir.
Strawberry Campground has 17 campsites for RVs, trailers, and tents. The sites are very well spaced and are surrounded by lush foliage, offering plenty of privacy. All sites are first-come, first served. Some visitors find the hand-pumped water at the campground distasteful due to its high mineral content. Consequently, they choose to bring their own water.
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 website when you make your reservation to be sure your vehicle will fit your campsite. First come, first serve sites may be available at campgrounds with reservations if sites have not been reserved. Campers without reservations may have to move after a single night if the campsite becomes reserved.
In order to prevent the spread of invasive insects, obtain firewood in 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
