GREENVILLE, Calif., April 7, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — The Wild Plumas ‘Glamping’ Campground barely survived the Dixie Fire of 2021, but this family-run business is determined to reopen and expand.

Last August, Josie and Dan Litchfield, their kids, and animals, barely escaped the Fire evacuation as the nearby town of Greenville was reduced to ash. While many historic buildings from Gold Panning Days of the 1800’s laid in ruin, Wild Plumas, a scenic 50-acre private campground remained as a reminder of the young couple’s resolve to survive and thrive. Wild Plumas is located in the heart of ‘The Lost Sierra,’ an area of Northern California known for its “under-the-radar beauty.” Located two hours north of Tahoe, the Lost Sierra offers over a thousand miles of river, hundreds of lakes, and hiking trails where you won’t see a soul. It was the perfect place for the Litchfield’s to open their dream business, a glamping campground with comfortable canvas tents, acres of privacy, and perks like hot outdoor showers, swimming holes, a meandering river, and more.

Unbeknownst to the Litchfield’s, and the resilient members of Greenville, none guessed the challenges the Dixie Fire would bring: Rebuilding an entire town with limited infrastructure (the gas station just re-opened to much celebration), and countering the fears people now have about traveling through a blackened forest. But Josie and Dan have the audacity to expand in this environment, and you can hear it in their voices when they talk about the future- with plans of yoga retreats, martial arts tournaments, and farm-to-table catered dinners by local chefs. “When Wild Plumas grows, the whole community is supported. This is our new purpose,” says Dan.

Working seven days a week, Josie and Dan plan to reopen on May 1st, a hopeful move for a couple filled with community resolve….
