Lake Davis

Lake Davis on the Plumas National Forest is one of 34 impoundments that make up the California Water Project that began in 1957.   Located at almost 6,000 feet in the Sierras, it was created by damming Grizzly Creek in 1967 and has been designated a fishing lake with speed boats, jet skis or water skiing prohibited.

That’s why we like it…it’s QUIET and it’s only 2 ½ hours away!  Most of the campers come to fish, not to party and since they get up at the crack of dawn to fish, they go to bed early.  We try to spend a couple weeks each year there.  I like the nesting ospreys, white pelicans, geese, and a lot of other critters to photograph; Kathy enjoys the quiet and feeding the campground birds and squirrels; and the dog loves the sagebrush patches adjacent to camp where lizards and chipmunks abound.
