For Kids

Gray Eagle Lodge provides your young explorer with a variety of adventures to conquer. Our kid-friendly hikes to Lilly Lake or Smith Lake offer a cache of discoveries. The Red Fir Trail is a great hike for youngsters with USFS markers and information placards.

A tour of the Kentucky Mine/Stamp Mill or gold panning at Plumas Eureka State Park in Johnsville, offer a historical journey. A short drive to Mills Peak Look-Out Tower offers break-taking views of Mt. Lassen and the Mohawk Valley. The rangers offer special Smokey the Bear memorabilia.

The town of Graeagle offers miniature golf, a driving range and the Mill Pond. Portola, a short 15 minute drive, hosts the Railroad and Train Museum. Driving an old locomotive is the highlight for most children (and adults)! If high-speed adventure is more attractive, try Sierra Touring Company’s ATV tours in the Sierra Valley.

The Lodge offers a natural swimming hole, below Graeagle Creek waterfall, for swimming and rubber raft play. The kids just might be able to land their first rainbow trout too! We also offer night time excitement with our nightly bonfire complete with roasting marshmallows for S’Mores and a Lodge-wide game of flashlight tag!

Ask us about when our biology class are scheduled.  Sierra Streams Institute offers a stream biology class complete with boots, nets, microscopes, and instruction.  Classes are limited.
