To reach Forestry camp by car, you should: (1) drive to Quincy; (2) drive eight miles west from Quincy on the Buck’s Lake Road; (3) turn left on Schneider Creek Road, following signs directing you to the “University of California Forestry Camp” about three fourths of a mile east of the main road.

Detailed directions:

  • From Quincy, go about 8 miles west on Bucks Lake Road
  • Look for an old round concrete silo in the field to your left — Schneider Creek Road turns off about 1/4 mile past it. (If you pass the Meadow Valley Country Store or the Creekside Diner on the left you have gone too far).
  • Turn left on Schneider Creek Road
  • The pavement ends soon after crossing Meadow Valley Creek and the road travels up a gentle hill.
  • Follow the left fork at the “Y” and cross Schneider Creek
  • Take the second right turn (at the top of a gentle hill, less than 1/4 mile after you cross Schneider Creek).
  • Look for the sign welcoming you to U.C. Forestry Camp. The gate is open when the camp is active.
  • Please park in the parking area and walk into camp.
