Spanish Creek Campground is located on Highway 70 just east of the Highway 89 intersection; just east of where Banish Creek and Indian Creek merge together to create the east branch of the North Fork Feather River. The campground is right on Spanish Creek with a very popular swimming hole. Although the campground has been recently upgraded, it still holds the charm that it did in years past.
Spanish Creek campground offers several single-family campsites that accommodate both tent and RV camping, however hookups are not available.
Each site is equipped with tables and campfire rings with grills. Vault toilets and drinking water are also provided. A full-service store, gas and phone service is available less than 10 miles away.
We do not provide firewood bundles anymore this season due to the high temperatures.
Generally, campsites will accommodate 2 vehicles. The first vehicle is included in the site fee, the second vehicle fee will be collected onsite at the daily rate posted on the fee sign.
Cell phone service is unreliable.
Bears frequent the area; visitors must follow all food storage and garbage regulations.
Firewood Bundles are available for purchase from a Campground Host.
Check- In is 2:00pm and Check-Out is Noon
This campground is located in the Plumas National Forest, which is attractive to outdoor enthusiasts because of its many streams and lakes, beautiful deep canyons, rich mountain valleys, meadows, and lofty peaks. Spanish Creek is in the Feather River Canyon, at an elevation of 2,000 feet.
Within the Plumas National Forest, Spanish Creek campground is just a few short miles from Indian Falls. This is one attraction not to miss. Some have said that the mist created by the falls resembles a feather -- thus naming the Feather River. Just southeast on Highway 70 from Spanish Creek Campground is the quaint high Sierra town of Quincy. We recommend walking around the town if you get a chance. Very close to the campground is the Butterfly Valley Botanical Area. This is also a neat spot to explore. Before you get to the town of Quincy you will pass the Mount Hough Ranger District - a wonderful stop to discover more information about local area attractions.
Anglers enjoy a healthy supply of rainbow trout in the nearby Feather River, which is within walking distance from the campground. The river and nearby Spanish Creek are also popular for swimming and wading activities.
