California Shasta Cascade Trinity Visitor Information

Mt. Shasta Area / Siskiyou County

Marvel at the castle like natural stone turrets of Castle Crags State Park. In Dunsmuir, you can enjoy railroad memorabilia and a stroll through this mountain community. Majestic Mt. Shasta provides great downhill and cross-country skiing in winter and hiking in summer. At its base lies the quaint city of Mt. Shasta, with lodging and dining. Lake Siskiyou offers camping, fishing, boating, and wind surfing. Rustic McCloud has antiques shops and boutiques.

Farther north, take a walking tour of preserved Victorian homes in Yreka’s historic district, which is on the National Register. The Siskiyou County Courthouse in Yreka features a dazzling display of huge gold nuggets. See a miner’s cabin and logging memorabilia at the Siskiyou County Museum.

To the west, the Klamath River teems with salmon-and anglers. Drive through pastoral Scott Valley, an agricultural center sheltered by the Trinity Alps and the Marble Mountains.

In the county’s eastern side, explore desert plateaus, deep craters, and caves at Lava Beds National Monument. For views of migrating birds that will make your spirits soar, head to the Tule Lake National Wildlife Refuge, north of the Lava Beds, and to the nearby Klamath Basin National Wildlife Refuge.

Camp-California is concerned about the health and safety of our campers and adventurers. While camping and outdoor activities do offer the ability to self-isolate, we are encouraging all California residents and travelers to shelter in place until further notice. We recognize that getting outdoors is what you do best, and we will be here to reacquaint you with nature once we're cleared for adventure again!


Most private parks are open with 14-day minimums. If you are a full-time RVer looking to shelter in place, a member of the traveling medical profession, or a utility worker looking for a park please call our office and we can connect you with an appropriate location.
