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.
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!
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.
Unlike the other campground on Lake Bitton (Dusty Campground) this is a more developed campground. It can be reserved - through PGE.
There is water. There are showers. And it is much larger - 20 plus sites. It can accomodate trailers. Lots of people here with boats as there is a boat launch. Sites have tables and fire rings. Pretty open so privacy can be an issue.
Towards the end of the summer the lake can get "murky" and full of algae. So you won't be swimming say in September. The lake offers fishing, boating and kayaking, Easy access from the campground. There is a "beach" like area on the lake.
If you get there at the end of the season you will get fall color.
Yo are an easy ride to get to Burney Falls State Park - or you can go across the lake to get h=there.
The falls sell the place. They are beautiful. The PCT trail goes right by on the opposite bank. Great fishing upstream from the falls. Great fun at Lake Britton.
BUT this is one busy crowded campground. It is large (many sites) has cabins, a visitor center and a store. So for me a tent camper this can feel like a freeway. So go in the off season - spring and fall. All the camping areas are not open then, but there are no crowds.
For tents some of the sites are open and not very private - meant for RVs. But you can hunt down a decent tent site. They have all the amenities here.
Beyond the falls and beyond the lake there is lots of hiking here. Hiking up the stream is magical. There are fall colors to enjoy, especially around Lake Britton. You can even strick out for the subway cave or Lassen or Mcloud from this central location.
