About Camp Layman:
For more than a century folks have made Camp Layman their vacation getaway for a few days or weeks every year. For many it has become an annual tradition.
The camp features 13 cozy cabins with full bathrooms and kitchens nestled in the forest along the Feather River between Cromberg’s Twenty Mile House and Graeagle. Camp Layman is just minutes away from some of the best hiking, fishing and golfing in Northern California’s Sierras.
While many folks use the resort as a base camp for exploring the scenic Lakes Basin Recreation Area by hiking or on horseback, there are plenty of family friendly outdoor activities right outside your cabin. The younger kids will immediately spot the swings and slide on the playground. You might also want to try your hand at basketball, shuffleboard, horseshoes, ping-pong, volleyball or badminton. The Middle Fork of the Feather River runs right behind the camp and offers some of the best trout fishing in Plumas County. Of course, the river is a great place for a swim in the summer. Take the kids and the dog and some inner tubes and enjoy a refreshing day on the river. While you’re there, keep your eyes peeled for wildlife, including deer, river otters and, of course, birds. Birders will be delighted by the vast variety of birds to watch. If you are lucky, you will get an up-close look at a train rolling down the tracks on the far side of the river. Wave at the engineer and he’ll gladly give you a couple toots of his horn.
Evenings at Camp Layman can be almost magical. With the smell of barbecue still in the air, guests enjoy gathering around the group campfire to roast marshmallows, share stories, play guitar and make new friends. Others choose to hang out in their cabin and play some of the large assortment of board games available in the office.
Not sure what you want to do tomorrow? Ask Dan and Shelley. The camp’s owners live onsite and are always happy to help. Need a fishing pole? Dan has extra poles and fishing gear on hand in the gift shop. It’s all complimentary. And so is his fishing advice.
