was super impressed by this one. got in later than expected and fowler’s was full, cattle camp did not disappoint. short drive or medium walk to a cold shasta swimming hole, nice trails, some highway buzz but nothing too bothersome.
Whether with family or the Girl Scouts, Siskiyou was a repeat camping destination growing up. The lovely red earth, thick green trees and uniquely beautiful blue/teal water makes for a welcoming lake day for all ages. My cousins and I used to fish in the evenings after a day of playing in the water or hiking. Have seen deer and bears here
Years ago you could camp right on the lake in primitive walk in spots, now that is not allowed. There is a small campground with just a few spots down the road a quarter mile but it's rare to find an empty spot there. The lake has grown in popularity over the years and if you want to secure a day spot on the lake's edge plan on getting there first thing in the morning. People do also disperse camp about another mile down the road in a gravel pull out area. Castle Lake is easy to get to via Castle Lake road which is paved the entire way.
Greg took care of us and was friendly and personable. There’s a convenience store and the little town is super close and convenient. Nothing fancy schmancy, but roomy and woodsy, and convenient for our drive down California. :) highly recommend!
Great location on the way to many points north along with an excellent morning or evening adventure to the falls. Camp Host (owner/operator?) is awesome and worth the stay alone.
Sites are a bit tight so might not be the solitude you’d want to a multi day stay but was perfect and energizing for a night in transit!
Pulled in here after a long and beautiful mountain drive from the coast over Highway 299 from the coast. It's just off 299 but road noise was minimal at night.
Our spot was near the office and the wifi was excellent. Also 2 bars Verizon, 1 bar AT&T. We used the laundromat, it was very good, modern. All the sites are back-in but it was pretty easy. Can fit any size rig. Full hookups,$45/night. 50-amp service only but the host will lend you a dog-bone if you need one.
Friendly host but no mask. No-one at the campground office was wearing a mask at the height of the pandemic, and one of the host's un-masked drunk friends tried to engage me in conversation as I backed away. Fox News on all the time in the office. If you have pets, keep them away from small but aggressive dog.
Minus two stars for the casual willingness to infect us with a deadly disease.
