Haskins Valley Campground Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Here’s another beautiful campground in Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) land. As usual, the campground is well conceived and well tended. PG&E is mindful of its image and sets out to curry favor with the public, ever apprehensive of its problems when it sometimes has to draw down the level of its reservoirs in late summer to satisfy us energy guzzlers in the flatland below. That’s when folks look around and say, “Hey, Bucks Lake isn’t a lake at all, but a reservoir contained by a dam. And Haskins Valley is named for the valley where the lake is now.”
Think summer camping: bring a tent you can stand up in—and sit in your folding chair. Consider a screen house too, as there are voracious mosquitoes in this area; out there when the bloodsuckers are buzzing in your ears, a screen house is worth its weight in gold. Bucks Lake is heavy-duty cross-country-skiing territory."
