Plumas-Eureka State Park opens for the season

Saturday, May 19, marks the long-awaited reopening of Plumas-Eureka State Park in Johnsville. After a year of closure, and the threat of permanent shuttering, park staff and volunteers are eager to once again serve the visiting public at northeastern California’s only state park.

Supervising Ranger Mike Rominger said, “I’m excited to think that we will once again have Plumas-Eureka State Park open for visitors to experience our outstanding historical and natural resources.”

The museum and the Plumas-Eureka State Park Association store will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, with excellent displays of the area’s rich mining history, and literature and clothing supplies for those seeking a remembrance of their visit.

The historic area around the park headquarters features an operating blacksmith shop; the Moriarity House, an early miner’s family home; the assay office where gold ore was tested for richness; and many exhibits of early-day mining equipment.   The nearby Madora Lake Trail is now open as well, offering a gentle 1-1/2-mile loop around the lake, where wildflowers will soon be in bloom and waterfowl will be establishing their new broods.

For information on daily events at the park, call 530-836-2380
