This is a very large campground outside of Lassens, if you are deterred by the size of the campground you are making a mistake! We got an excellent site right next to the cliff with plenty of privacy. The waterfall is amazing and theres an awesome little lake nearby too!
This campground is super popular, so you will most likely need a reservation in advance. But it’s so worth it! The waterfalls are breathtaking, the lake is refreshing and the campground itself is relaxing and peaceful. The sites aren’t super cramped, there is a general store, clean facilities, and even cool cabins if that’s your thing. We’ve been in July and late fall and both times were spectacular.
the falls are amazing. i love the temperature difference you can experience when you hike to the bottom of the falls. looking forward to going again.
It had been over 20 years since the last time we camped here so I was pleased to see that updates had been made and the park is well maintained. Two loops: Rim Camp and Pioneer camp. Pioneer has over 20 cabins plus over 20 camping sites. We stayed in the Rim Camp; on a Monday the week before Memorial Day, we had our pick of sites as the park was nearly empty but the website warns that on weekends and during the summer, this park does fill up. No hookups so the $35 per night ($33 for seniors) price is a little pricey. Some sites have paved pads and some are dirt; since it rained hard as soon as we set up, we appreciated the pavement. Bathrooms have been updated since the last time we were here in the mid-1990s and they are individual rooms with toilet and sink and (powdered) soap but no trash receptacle. Didn’t check the condition of the showers. The two draws are Burney Falls and Lake Britton. We didn’t go to the lake because it was cold and rainy but there are boat and kayak rentals available, which we would take advantage of during nicer weather. Absolutely no cell service!
Its clean lots of space between campgrounds great fishing the falls are beautiful
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!
Had a wonderful visit. No hookups. So only dry rv camping. Hike around the lake and even made my own trails.
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.
We enjoy this site for family camping. Fishing, swimming, and walking trails. Nice showers. Not very much privacy.
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.
