Spring rains are a blessing for Lake Pillsbury
What a wonderful sight to see Lake Pillsbury so full this April, 2018 from early spring rains. We had a mild winter this year in contrast to last year’s extreme weather of non-stop rain and snow. Our roads took it rough last year which limited access to the area. As of July 2017, both the Lake and Mendocino county roads in from Upper Lake and Potter Valley were open and passable. The old logging road was closed by PG&E last winter and is not open for public use. We anticipate the counties to work on their sections of road to get things in good shape for our summertime travels. Pre-season, do expect conditions to be rough as late winter, early spring rains create soft spots and pot holes on the gravel roads.
Here at the Resort, we are booking up fast for ALL the long holiday weekends in our campsites, and Memorial Day is currently full with a waiting list. With 5 USFS/PG&E campgrounds at the north end of the lake, there are still lots of options for your adventure to Lake Pillsbury with these first come, first served areas. By reservation, you can book your week stay in our campground with many choice sites still available early June and later in July. For shorter stays with large groups, we have some areas open for group camping you can book right now. Weekend reservations are only taken a few weeks out from check-in date once we roll into our busy time.
We still have cabins open for those family get-togethers the first week of June and later in August. Mid-summer there are only a few openings for week stays, Saturday to Saturday, in the small secluded cabins. We wish we had more cabins to accommodate all who want to share in this wonderful outdoor summer family vacation experience at Lake Pillsbury Resort. As always, we greatly appreciate the patronage of our returning guests and their many years of loyalty who reserve a year in advance for their favorite cabin or campsite every summer.
