A Good Camp Host can make or break the most Beautiful.
It's a beautiful area, the campground is located in the middle of Red Bluff Recreation Area. Lot's of nature trails. They have many of the plants and trees recognized by little name tags. So interesting and absolutely gorgeous.
It says on a sign reservation only, but after driving around to the other spots in red bluff, and feeling great unease, I went ahead and drive in to a spot around 9pm. I immediately felt much better and more safe here. Had a great sleep and was on my way in the AM. I never interacted with the site host but it looks like the trails and areas around are worth hiking.
The sites are a little small but they are right on the water and the area is quite and beautiful. The lake was incredibly smooth and perfect for a kayak/paddle board. The toilets are vault but there is potable water and a little store up the road that sells firewood and a few snacks/beverages.
17 sites at Ah Di Na and no booking is available so get here early on busy weekends.
My partner and I were lucky to nab the last spot Thursday before 4th July weekend. Several people arrived after us and did not get a spot.
The drive down from McCloud lake is along a dirt forestry road. It’s steep and rocky, lots of loose debris and some hairy areas that require higher clearance. A compact crossover will make it but a family sedan will not. Leave your RV at home. The road is narrow in some parts. We drove a 4runner in 2H the entire way. 2 wheel drive vehicles with good clearance will be ok in dry weather. Drive SLOWLY. The jagged rocks can shred up a tire in a hot second.
Sites vary in size and quality. Some will have a metal fire pit while others have a stone one. Some have picnic tables and others don’t. Potable water is available and there are flushing toilets. Firewood is not available for sale here as there is no host. Either bring your own or bring a saw for collecting wood. A ranger will drop by every day to check fees and complete maintenance.
There is a historic trail that takes you on a tour of the old resort. River access leads to a pebble beach and there are deep pockets of water for fishing. It gets crowded in the afternoon as people swim and sunbathe so early morning or late evening is your best shot at landing some fish.
Mosquitos are everywhere so be prepared. In the early evening it got so bad that I wore a headnet.
Walking distance to the conservancy which is down the same dirt road the campsite is on. Lots of good spots on the way too.
Let me start by saying that the area is beautiful. This place is very big also. We planned a trip for our daughters 6th birthday. Got 3 full hook up spots for us, friends and family. These spots aver VERY hard to back in to. The trees are leaning toward the center of the sights literally giving us a foot of room on each side to back in a 24 foot trailer. Boat ramp is very sketchy for a larger patio style boat, will not be doing that again. We brought our daughters quad with us ( little 110cc kids quad) as we were told rides to the store and boat ramp were ok. After about 5 mins of her being on it we were told no more quad riding that day because another group on the other side of the campground had been on them late the night before. Total crap. That was the main thing she was looking forward to that weekend. We will be looking for a place with more space between sites next time and is ATV friendly.
Lots of Dispersed tent spots but can fill up fast. Bathroom not too far away. Most people camping here are climbers, so they could be trying to get some sleep before the big climb. So it wasn’t great timing when we were Celebrating our Summit! Oops
