The Elephants Playground is a rock formation located in Genesee, Plumas County, California.[1] The area burned in the 2019 Walker Fire.


Elephant's Playground was named by early Anglo-American settlers because the boulders can resemble a herd of elephant torsos. The boulder rock formations are huge, round, somewhat smooth and tightly packed.[2]

Elephants Playground has been noted for its unusual place name.[3]
