2022 UPDATE: Most of this National Forest has been devastated by recent wildfires. Much of the forest in between Bucks Lake and Oroville is now totally toast. That’s a whopping 50 mile stretch, hence 318,935 acres. Expect campground closures, damaged trails and heavy logging activity. Charred forests also exist all the way around Indian Valley and Lake Almanor, and along Highway 70, east of Quincy, CA
