Little Grass Valley Reservoir Recreation Season Winding Down

Sept. 24, 2012 - The recreation season at Little Grass Valley Reservoir near La Porte, CA was a huge success this past summer. "This was the first year in a long time Forest Service employees have run the facility; we had more visitors and few complaints even with some of the problems we experienced with the water system," said Karen Hayden, Feather River District Ranger. Typical seasonal shutdowns have begun she said.

Little Beaver Campground, along with Maidu Boat Ramp will close for the season on September 24, 2012. This facility usually stays open until the end of September, however this year employees want to complete necessary water system repairs within campground loops to improve functioning for the summer 2013 season. Running Deer Campground and Red Feather Campgrounds will remain open until October 1, 2012 and reservations are still being accepted.

Wyandotte and Peninsula Tent Campgrounds will close on October 1, 2012, while Toomes Boat Ramp and Pancake Beach will remain open.

Black Rock Tent Camp and Boat Launch, as well as Horse Camp will remain open with drinking water and toilets for use by hunters, fishermen, equestrians and campers until November 1, 2012. Docks at boat launch ramps will remain in the water as long as lake levels allow, but may be removed as early as mid-October. Visitors are reminded this is a reservoir and after Labor Day, the water is released from the dam, causing reservoir levels to drop, sometimes so low that water is well below the bottom of boat ramps. Docks are left in as long as possible, sometimes until the snow flies.

The facilities typically re-open in time for Memorial Day if the winter and spring have been mild. Call the Feather River Ranger District for more information at 530-534-6500 or see the forest website at: http://www.fs.usda.gov/plumas .
