This camp site is located on my 20 acre gold claim. It is very quiet and tranquil all year round. Pitch your tent or park your camper next to the river. Fishing, boating and swimming in Antelope Lake is within walking distance, or fish and swim in the slow moving river at the campsite. There is also a public toilet at the lake. Plenty of easy to moderate hiking on site. …and YES! You may pan for GOLD in the creek and keep what you find!
History of Golden Grizzly and surrounding areas
Golden Grizzly 20 acre gold claim campsites sits on rich and beautiful Indian Creek in Plumas County, California. This extremely nice campsite is nestled in a very gorgeous location on Indian Creek just a 1/2 mile downstream from the Antelope Lake. The area is known for logging, ranching, mining, fishing, boating, etc. Just a ton of recreation within minutes of the campsite in every direction. Greenville is the closest and largest nearby town approx. 35 minutes away and is pretty small, approx. 1129 people in town. Greenville is an old Historic mining town, and old town is really neat. In town three is a nice grocery store, 2 fuel stations, awesome hardware store, good pizza place, two cafe/diners, cool old bar, hotels, etc. Taylorsville is the closest town (approx 20 miles) to the campsite, just much smaller and is the gateway to Antelope Lake. Taylorsville offers a 4th of July Rodeo every year and has a sweet old bar, cafe, grocery store, mineral/gem museum, etc. The grocery store in Taylorsville is really good offering tasty burgers and deli sandwiches. Antelope Lake is only a 1/2 mile from the campsite and offers massive channel catfish (51 lbs close to state record I believe) a few years ago, trout, bass, water skiing, boating, camping, etc. Worth noting, Reno, Nevada is only approx. 1-1/2 hours away if you want to hit the casinos!
