First off, note that Little Grass Valley Reservoir is not in the outskirts of the gold country town of Grass Valley. It’s not even in the same county. Little Grass Valley Reservoir, a 1,615-acre manmade lake nestled in the mountains of Plumas County, collects water from the Feather River watershed. Wyandotte is one of six campgrounds around the reservoir. Sites at Red Feather, Running Deer, and Horse Camp are reservable, while Wyandotte, Peninsula Tent, and Black Rock are not. Peninsula Tent is a good option if Wyandotte is full; Peninsula Tent has forested walk-in sites a short distance from the lake but sits right off the lake access road and can be a bit noisy. Wyandotte is more scenic and peaceful.
