The Spanish Creek Campground sits at the juncture of the Indian Creek and Banish Creek, east of Highway 89, on Highway 70. This dog-friendly campground is on the banks of Spanish Creek with a popular swimming hole. To the southeast, you have the historic Quincy town. While the campground was upgraded recently, it still holds the charm as it did since many years.
Located in the Plumas National Forest, the campground attracts outdoor enthusiasts with its numerous lakes, streams, beautiful canyons, meadows, lofty peaks, and mountain valleys. Anglers will love the abundance of rainbow trout in the Feather River, which is a short walk from the grounds. The Spanish Creek is at a 2,000-foot elevation and is popular for swimming and wading activities.
There are 27 beautiful campsites, of which 4 are tent-only and 3 are group sites. Hookups are not available. Every site comes with a campfire ring, grill, table, and bear-proof storage box. Many campsites are waterfront sites, i.e. they’re right on the creek. Drinking water and vault toilets are provided. Phone service, gas, and a full-service store are available within 10 miles of the campground. Remember to pack poop bags and clean up after Fido and keep them on a leash.
Fun activities include hiking, biking, fishing, swimming, kayaking, tubing, and horseback riding. You can also explore some historic sites in the area. And if you are into it, you can even indulge in some butterfly watching and other wildlife viewing opportunities. These are among the more unique and amazing experiences at and around the Spanish Creek Campground. Be sure to check out the Indian Falls. According to some people, the mist created by the falls looks like a feather – resulting in the name Feather River. Overall, the campground offers a nice collection of amenities and activities, perfect for you and your canine friend.
