Lakes Basin Lodges

In the Lakes Basin Recreation Area

there are dozens of lakes connected by a network of trails.  Many of the lakes can only be reached by walking.  If your interests include the outdoors, photography, bird watching, fishing, or just relaxing by a gentle mountain stream, then you've found the ideal vacation area.


If you're looking for lodging with all the meals cooked for you, take a look at Gold Lake Lodge. At this resort, the only planning you have to do is what clothes to wear, and how to spend your free time.  They rent by the night for those with a tight schedule.





If you would rather cook the meals yourself, Elwell Lodge's cabins each have kitchens with all the necessary equipment provided. Weekly accommodations only during the main summer months.


Elwell Lakes Lodge is operated under a Special Use Permit issued by the Plumas National Forest

and is an equal opportunity recreation services provider
