Opening ceremonies for Plumas National Forest’s new equestrian campground facilities will be held Saturday, June 1st, at the Snake Lake Campground on the Mt. Hough Ranger District. Festivities begin at 1:00 p.m.
Amenities at the campground now include: eight new campsites designed for equestrian users, eight corrals, nine family campsites, picnic tables, and campfire rings. Activities at the site include fishing, hiking, horseback riding, off-highway vehicle trail riding, and non-motorized boating.
Plumas County will remain under an emergency proclamation until all businesses and homeowners have a chance to discover and assess potential damage.
Over $1M in damages has been reported, and over 50 homes in the Lake Almanor basin have been impacted. Broken or toppled chimneys continue to be the most common report, but broken water lines have caused flooding and water damage, decks, porches and windows have been damaged, and at least one structure has shifted off the foundation.

Eight high school students from around the county and beyond will be gainfully employed this summer doing restoration work in the Storrie Fire area.
The students attended their first orientation at Mount Hough Ranger Station on May 4.
Their trail work will begin June 24 and continue for six weeks, Monday through Thursday, with weekends off.
The program is a partnership between the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship, Plumas National Forest, Plumas Unified School District, Feather River College, Pacific Crest Trail Association and numerous sponsoring businesses.
Life is beginning to return to normal in northern Plumas County. All Plumas County roadways and highways are open, but continue to watch for loose or falling rocks. Laboratory testing has cleared the Lake Almanor Mutual Water District system, so the ‘Boil Water Advisory’ has now been lifted. To help residents with disposal of broken or damaged televisions, computer screens, or other electronics, special E-Waste Events have been scheduled for the Chester Transfer Station and the Greenville Transfer Station this Saturday, June 1, 2013 from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Electronic devices will be accepted at no charge at both locations.
A group of Lake Almanor Basin businesses are working together to promote the area as a vacation destination.
For the last year, five local businesses — Wally’s Peninsula Market, Knotty Pine Resort and Marina, Lake Almanor Brokers Realtor Joe Gilmore and Smith Properties — have been working on a marketing campaign that reaches out to residents of the Reno/Sparks area to come visit Lake Almanor.
