Nice camp ground on the water

5 stars

Ring of Fire is a must do!!

Very nice and secluded

Spots are nice and far apart. Very quiet. Very clean toilet

Gross

Trash everywhere, water disgusting. Horrible what people do. Need high clearance or 4wd messed up my little car. I wouldn't even let my dog out the car

Abandoned campground

Visited 4-16-21. Campground appears to be closed but has no signs saying so, just covers on the old signs. Tables and fire rings removed in northern half, bathrooms locked. Nice place for dry camping, near scenic Wolf Creek.

Good for a night or two - can be muddy in Spring

The main road to Bogard Campground had too much snow for us to be able to pass through, so we found this small clearing tucked away off of Forest Route 32N09 in Lassen Nat’l Forest to stay overnight instead. 

It’s a nice open flat-ish space, big enough for several rigs as well as big enough to do a complete u-turn in our 26ft class c without having to back up. 

It’s quiet except for lots of distant road noise from the highway and surprisingly frequent train noise in the distance. We stayed here on a Sunday night in April, and did not see another soul. There seems to be a lot of logging activity in this area though, and we wondered if this clearing was some sort of staging area for the loggers.  

There’s a small pond here at this time of year, probably from runoff from snow melt. Be aware of the ground near the water being deceptively solid but saturated with water and muddy. Our tires sank a bit when we tried to park too close to the water. 

Zero cell service for any of the 3 major carriers, and our cell booster did not help much.

Not Maintained in the Winter

We did not stay the night here, as there was too much snow on Bridge Creek Springs Road in April for our RV to be able to get through. We spent the night in a clearing nearby though, and walked over to the campground to check it out. 

The camp sites are nicely spread out, and each comes with a picnic table and steel fire pit. The website says max trailer length is 25 ft, but the sites looked plenty large enough to accommodate longer vehicles.

There is lots of shade, almost no sun, so if you rely on solar power keep that in mind. 

Not maintained during the winter, but the campground is open. There are two unisex handicap accessible vault toilets, and one was unlocked and the other was locked. We saw several sites with dedicated horse corrals at the site. 

There is also a day use area. 

We saw a sign pointing the way to “water” but did not see any water spigots in the campground. The sign may have been referring to Pine Creek which passes along behind the campground. The website does mention handpumped water though, so maybe there was a spigot that we didn’t see. 

During the winter the campground has kind of an eery, disheveled look. However, when maintenance starts up again, and when the Aspen change color in the fall, this campground is probably a beautiful place. 

Zero cell service.

No fees even during open season.

great spot

we were traveling from the Fresno area to the Redding area.  We stopped here well after they had closed.  The late night check in was easy.  The map they provided to pick out a spot was easy to read, the instruction were clear and concise.  We were able to find a nice spot and set up for the night.  We got up and had our breakfast at the provided picnic table.  The spot was very comfortable, clean and just what we needed.  The other amenities are really nice.  We look forward to staying here again.

AMAZING!

This place is magical, serene and if you are not put at peace then there is no hope.  Out of all the camping we've done since we've been fulltiming this one is definitely at the top of the list.

The campground is very small: only 5 sites plus the extra site near the bridge. There is a creek and our spot (#4) was next to it. Perhaps it was nice because we had the entire place to ourselves for a whole day. Others showed up later, but surprisingly both large rigs picked sites that kept us all hidden from each other, which was very nice. 

There was no fee when we were here. No garbage service so pack in and pack out. There are water spigots but water had not been turned on this early in the season. 

The bathroom is set back a bit from the camp sites and looked as if someone was using it as target practice unfortunately. Fire pits and picnic tables are at all sites except the first long back-in spot right when you pull in near the bridge. 

The sound of the creek downs out any sounds from neighbors. Sites are both partial sun and shade. The road in was about 3 miles of dirt road but surprisingly smooth and we made it fine in our 26’ Class C, and later much bigger rigs came in so the road is good for most sizes. 

Nearby is the Bizz Johnson trail and runs from Susanville to Westwood. The trail was created on an old railroad line and is nice and wide and relatively flat. 

Without WeBoost three is zero cell reception for AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile. With it we were able to watch a movie at night on our T-Mobile hotspot and be able to do some browsing on the Verizon cell phone. No bugs when we were here in April but we saw wasp traps all over (full of wasp carcasses) so I’d guess they are a problem at other times of the year.

This state park is a gem

I stayed at this campsite after they opened from the pandemic while on a road trip home and I am so so happy I stayed here. The waterfall is like nothing I have ever seen before, and I was so blown away at it's size. The campground is a 5-10 min walk from the waterfall and while it is not private, each campsite has plenty of space I felt. 

Bring a lock because the best bins require one! I recommend going down to the lake as well because when I went later in the afternoon/evening it was completely empty and we had the place to ourselves. Great spot to relax.
