We are winter camped here for a couple of days on our way to Mexico… The Dyrt spotted this campground for us on our route and we are sooo glad… We will make this a destination in the future.
We booked this campsite as an overnight stay on our way to Southlake Tahoe from Eugene Oregon. The campsite is incredibly beautiful with views of Mount Shasta and several other mountain peaks from the edge of the campground. Dannelle and Ben were incredibly helpful during the reservation and check in process. There was a small glitch with our reservation, but Danelle fixed it quickly and showed us to our site, which was very nicely set up and ready for a great stay. We use the trails around the campsite a couple of times each day and had an absolutely fantastic time overall. We will certainly be back.
Camped here in June 2020 and got the single prime spot across the little pond with its own pit toilet. Snowed when we were there in June. No hookups but there’s water around the campsites and picnic tables and fire pits. Excellent little campground with maybe a dozen or so sites. Clean & well maintained. Beautiful Warner Mountains all around.
If you keep going up the forest road there are dispersed camping spots at higher elevation with great views but roads only suitable for small rigs. There’s both a BLM and USFS office in nearby Cedarville for info plus hot springs in Surprise Valley and lots of good rockhounding in nearby Warner mountains on the west side towards Lakeview. Would camp here again.
Pros: Totally isolated (during the week). Stunning views of surrounding mountains and forest with a crystal clear lake (Cave Lake) for swimming and fishing. Sites equipped with fire pits and picnic tables. Pit toilets. Camped directly next to lake. Stargazing was absolutely breathtaking. One of our very favorite sites just over the Oregon-California border.
Cons: No water. Difficult climb/drive without good tires or 4WD (very steep, high grade road that is mostly dirt and large rocks).
Tips: 4WD/AWD is a must. And drive slowly (see above). We popped a tire in our SUV on the way up, but totally worth it.
We were desperate for a campground on our trip. I found one spot here and booked it immediately hoping it was a nice campground. We were pleasantly surprised. The new owners are very friendly and helpful. The campground is quiet and clean. There are trails to explore and amazing views. Our favorite so far!
We spent two nights just passing through during COVID-19, and were pleasantly surprised at the hospitality offered to us. The campground was clean and had huge sites, most in wooded lots. The family who owns this campground are very friendly and made us feel like family. The campground is peaceful and relaxing. Wi-fi is available at the office area. Verizon on my phone at our site was weak. They plan to upgrade the WiFi to better accommodate visitors. Beautiful trails and a great view of Mt Shasta from on of them. Great campground.
Love staying here. Lots to do nearby mostly obsidian collection and fishing. Make sure if you are wanting to collect you get a free permit in town before heading out. The road can be a little rough to the campground with some deep ruts. We were able to pull our 19 foot camper up the road and into the campground not sure if we would try with anything larger. Campground is in the shade which is great in the summer and has a creek running through.
This is my favorite park of all time. I’ve been here multiple times since I was a kid, so I’m a little biased most likely. Last time I camped here it was on the off season and not the smartest decision. We were the only people camping in the entire park. The bathrooms were all locked even though the park was technically open. We didn’t come super prepared, it was in November about everything froze in the morning. Still we made it work and we had a blast. There’s multiple hikes like Bumpass Hill. There’s stunning views and lakes. It’s also not too populated, many people don’t know about it still. I highly recommend it.
