A couple of corrections to your comment on Modoc Recreational Estates. Dues for 2008 were $30 per parcel for the year. That fee includes road and park maintenance. Also, taxes are at 1% for assessed value plus approximately $100 per parcel for things like library assessment and transfer station (dump) assessment.
Modoc Recreational Estates has CC&Rs, and active association and annual dues per lot for 2008 was $30.
Cedar Pass Summerland has CC&RS, and active association and annual dues per lot is 2007 were $36.
Modoc Recreational Estates is closer to Alturas and most lots are at a lower elevation making for easier year round access. Cedar Pass Summerland is very pretty, but if you have a difficult winter as we did this last season, you may not be able to get in and out of your property.
