Grasshopper Flat Campground is located in the Plumas National Forest on Lake Davis and has 70 sites for tents, trailers and RVs. Tall pine trees provide some dandy shade to most campsites, and each site has a table, fire ring and grill. The campground has drinking water, flush toilets and showers (coin operated). A sanitation dump station is about 1/4 mile from the campground. There’s also 2 full accessible (ADA) campsites and group camping.

Campers can stay up to 14 days. There’s a 2 vehicle and 6 person limit per campsite.

Lake Davis was created in 1967 and includes 4,000-acre feet and 32 miles of shoreline.  Visitors can enjoy boating, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, swimming, hiking, mountain biking, picnicking, hunting and wildlife viewing.  Although Grasshopper Flat Campground is closed during the winter, you can visit the area and do a little ice fishing, snowmobiling and cross-country skiing.

The two other campgrounds at Lake Davis are Grizzly Campground and Lightning Tree Campground.

    My family visited the campground for Labor Day weekend. We arrived in Saturday and was impressed by the size of the campsites. There’s Lots of shade and the lake is within walking distance. As soon as it started to get dark, we started getting invaded by flying insects. We used special candles and bug spray and nothing helped. I have NEVER seen this many bugs in my life. They were so aggressive, flying right at our faces. Our table was covered in them. We went to the bathroom and there were so many of them we couldn’t open the door to the bathroom. They were inside our tents, all over our clothes. By morning time, they weren’t as bad but there were piles (not an exaggeration) of dead insects by the bathroom. When we tried to use the bathroom, the walls, sink, and toilets were covered in them. We ended up cutting our trip short, which is upsetting because we paid for 2 campsites for 2 nights in advance. I will NEVER go back there! The only reason I gave them 1 1/2 stars is because of the size and besides the bugs it was beautiful.
