Description

Nestled among scented pine trees in a deep cove at the south end of Bucks Lake, Haskins Valley Campground is a popular vacation spot in California's Plumas County. A portion of the 65 campsites can now be reserved through the handy online system. Haskins Valley Campground has a trailer/camper sanitary station, double vault toilets and a nearby boat ramp. RVs up to 40 feet in length can be accommodated on a few of the no-hookup sites, which feature tables, food lockers, fire rings with grill and piped water. The campground is part of Pacific Gas and Electric Co.'s recreation area which centers around enticing Bucks Lake. The lake is home to five kinds of sport fish, and is a terrific place to swim, boat and water ski.

Turn right onto CA-162E for 13.5 miles and continue onto Oroville-Quincy Hwy for 20 miles. Continue onto Bucks Lake Rd for approximately 14 miles to Bucks Lake.

Camp ground was clean and quiet. Reason for not returning is there is very limited access to the lake and all users use this spot for lounging and launching. Park Managers were very nice and helpful. Reservation system needs some improvement for those just walking in.

Love Haskins...hate the reservation system
100 % of users found this review helpful
We have camped at Haskins for years. It is one of our favorite places to go and we can even fit our RV into several spots! The bathrooms are always very clean and well stocked - not stinky and the camp host, Donna, is helpful and friendly. That all being said - I hate the new reservation system. We did not make a reservation because it kept locking up on me so we took a chance. We got the spot we wanted but were told they couldn't guarantee that we could have it the 4th day because if someone reserved it then we would have to move. The host is unable to make any indication online that the site is occupied. There were probably only 6 other campers in the entire campground because of the "RESERVED" signs that are posted at every site. People drive thru, see the sign and keep moving. This system needs some serious work.

We loved camping here last year and we are booking again for this summer. Great campsites. Very spread out so you don't feel like you are camping on top of each other. Clean restrooms. Walking distance to the camp store, open meadow, lake and creek. Very nice facility.
