Overview

Hallsted campground is conveniently situated in the Feather River Canyon, just off the main road in the northern Sierra Nevada Mountains. At an elevation of 2,300 feet, it offers a cool getaway from the summer heat, as well as a variety of outdoor activities

The route on the nearby Feather River National Scenic Byway traverses a steeply carved river gorge that encapsulates the historic railroad system from Oroville to Quincy and impressive powerhouses built to provide hydroelectricity.

Natural Features:

Mature pine and fir trees provide ample shade for the campground, as well as a perfect atmosphere for mountain camping. Several sites parallel the north fork of the Feather River. A variety of wildlife make its home in the area.

Recreation:

Fly fishing for trout and swimming are popular activities in the nearby north fork of the Feather River.

Facilities:

Hallsted is within walking distance of the Feather River. The campground offers multiple single-family sites, accommodating both tent and trailer camping. Tables and campfire rings with grills are provided, as well as flush toilets, showers and drinking water.

Recently renovated, most of Hallsted’s campground spurs have been widened and lengthened as well as multiple sites now have power. The shower and bathroom facilities are all new. In addition, a nice walking path meanders through the forest and takes you down to the North Fork of the Feather River.

Nearby Attractions:

A general store is available in Twain, less than a half-mile from the campground. Quincy is approximately 17 miles east, providing the nearest source of fuel.
