  • We have lived near here for 35 years and our bluegrass band plays every year for their yearly pancake breakfast fundraiser. This is a great place to experience California history of gold mining. Docen...  more »
  • Lots of history and beautiful views. Lots to see. Nice campgrounds with showers and great hiking trails. 
  • We checked out the Park recently and will definitely come back for a camping trip. So much history and scenic beauty. Campground is tucked deep into the park. Great for hikes.

  • I love this place. Great California gold mining/snow skiing history. The Ranger Station/store/museum is a treasure trove of local history. Beautiful campground. Be sure to bring a camera for the many photo ops along the hiking trails to remnants of the Jamison Mine Complex, Eureka Tunnel, Tramway Terminal Ruins, the Mohawk Stamp Mill and the Intorf Ski Lodge. If you have a 4 wheel drive with some ground clearance drive up to Eureka Lake for a breathtaking view of Eureka Peak at 7447' or take a hike to the top. Definitely put this place on your "to go see" list!
  • I went to the Lost Sierra Hoedown and had the time of my year! Enjoyed every moment. You can hike and play and listen to live music. Thanks to Azariah Reynolds for hosting his music festival at the old Johnsville Ski Hill
  • Nice mountain to visit and play and relax in. It has many lakes to swim, fish, and kayak in. Trails for exploring and majestic scenery. Old mining town nestled up in the thick pine forest. There r golf courses, wine bars, nice restaurants near by. It's tranquil, relaxing, and so much to do for everyone. You can easily have a whole week here and have something different to do every day. I had a very nice time here. It was my second time here. And I am marking it as one of my favorite places.
  • Clean, quiet, and beautiful
