PCWA Campgrounds Open for Summer 2014

AUBURN - The recreational attractions of the Placer County Water Agency's Middle Fork American River Project are open for the summer.

The project includes campgrounds at French Meadows and Hell Hole reservoirs, high on the western slope of the Sierra near the headwaters of the American and Rubicon rivers; and other attractions ranging down the Middle Fork American River to Oxbow Reservoir, a popular launching area for whitewater rafters.

 The pristine, relatively undiscovered area is reached via Mosquito Ridge Road from Foresthill or Eleven Pines Road from Georgetown.  French Meadows is situated 50 miles east of Auburn.

 Most of the campgrounds are snowbound in winter and are usually accessible from Memorial Day weekend through early October.  PCWA officials said the current drought will result in lower than normal lake levels and flows this summer but that sufficient water is anticipated through Labor Day weekend.

 For information on French Meadows and other Middle Fork recreational opportunities, contact the U.S. Forest Service Foresthill Ranger Station at (530) 367-2224.

 For recreation information on Hell Hole Reservoir and the Rubicon River watershed, contact the U.S. Forest Service Georgetown Ranger Station at (530) 622-5061.

 Public recreation is a benefit of the PCWA Middle Fork American River Project which stores water and generates hydroelectric energy.  The project includes five power plants that produce an average 1 million megawatt hours of energy per year.

 For information on PCWA, see www.pcwa.net.
