Overall Rating

Spent 3 days here as all other CG in Plumas NF are still locked down. Beautiful location "on top of the mountain", small CG of 9 sites relatively undeveloped by the USFS. 6 miles of pretty rough road to get to Silver Lake. Probably why the camp was not locked. I wouldn't recommend pulling a trailer to the camp as the spaces are small (12- 20') and the road would shake the equipment pretty hard.
I would stay here again but bring the mosie repellent.

Americal would stay here again
