Continued south to Sims Campground located along the Upper Sacramento River.

Campsite Along Hazel Creek

Sims was named after Simeon (Sims) Southern an early pioneer, who built a trading post and corral in 1859 to supply the gold miners.

Notice the wood pile in this picture. With all the storm damage from the winter storms, the CCC came through and did an excellent clean-up job in the campground. All the wood is left for campers. Keep in mind it’s still pretty green.

The picture above is all that’s left of the Camp Sims (1934-1939) once a bustling CCC Camp for boys from the Bay Area communities. Besides firefighting, the boys gained a real reputation for building 3 fire lookouts, constructing part of Everitt Memorial Highway and building Panther Meadows Campground.
