Family fun

we loved this campground! You have options of no hiking and enjoying some spectacular views or short hikes to see even more spectacular views! So even my kids enjoyed the hiking! The staff was so kind and the store is away from the camping by a short walk. Close enough but not to close! Absolutely loved this place for family camping.

Cabins though were not what we expected. 2 room cabin and we got 2 bunk beds and a space heater. Nothing in front room. Bring your table and chairs. Bunk beds were comfortable though!

Holy waterfall

Had a wonderful visit. No hookups. So only dry rv camping. Hike around the lake and even made my own trails.

Bucket List Waterfall

This is a very easy camping site for beginners. Lots of great trails, and the most incredible cliff-like waterfall, with the water not just coming over the top, but shooting out of cracks all long the rock face. There is a store on site with a decent selection of camping and convenience store items, and firewood is for sale at the gate. Amazing caving nearby too.

Great spring camping

We enjoy this site for family camping. Fishing, swimming, and walking trails. Nice showers. Not very much privacy.

Camping with people

This is a great campground but you are right on top of each other. Spots are close but it's worth it for the views and hiking.

Tent and cabin campground near falls and lake!

Has tents and cabin lodging. Flushable toilets with showers. Small store with limited items located in campground. 2 min from Burney falls or small beach on nearby lake. Campground is about 20-30 I’m away from Burney city where there is gas and a Safeway.

Close to the falls

Camped at Pioneer Camp in August, 2017. Nice campground under the pine trees even though it was full and a little crowded at that time. Some sites are close so music from neighboring site(s) can be heard. A picnic table, a fire ring and a little storage box are available at each site. Restrooms and showers were nice and clean. Since a store is so close, it is very convenient if you forget anything or just want to get food quick and easy. The falls itself is also so close to the campground so you could just hike/walk to explore. We stayed there only one night, but would love to go back and explore more around this place.

Crowded but worth it.

Campsites are pretty close and get get pretty busy. But the waterfall is a short walking distance, and Lake Britton is in the park as well. We did have a good campsite backed up to the cliff.

Spellbinding, get away from it all

Large campground, back sites back into wooded away so sites are unofficially almost 2x as big, some new bathrooms & showers, smoothly paved roads, moderate strenuous hiking access to nearby lake, mini cabins, tent or RV camping, the Falls are spectacular but water is VERY cold. Fairly steep hike down to Falls, not very handicap friendly but there are a few overlooks, nice camp store where you can get cell service. Really loved camping here for 5 days. Lace tubes about 20min drive. Don't miss!

Never did I know something this magnificent was around!

I’ve always been star struck with Mount Shasta. I never saw the beauty of the surroundings. McArthur Park is an easy stop and a fun walk. Bring a jacket. You’llget wet walking that path!
