McArthur Burney Falls Memorial State Park Camping Guide

McArthur-Burney Falls Memorial State Park is within the Cascade Range and Modoc Plateau natural region, with forest and five miles of streamside and lake shoreline, including a portion of Lake Britton.

The park's centerpiece is the 129-foot Burney Falls, which is not the highest or largest waterfall in the state, but possibly the most beautiful. Additional water comes from springs, joining to create a mist-filled basin. Burney Creek originates from the park's underground springs and flows to Lake Britton, getting larger along the way to the majestic falls.

The park's landscape was created by volcanic activity as well as erosion from weather and streams. This volcanic region is surrounded by mountain peaks and is covered by black volcanic rock, or basalt. Created over a million years ago, the layered, porous basalt retains rainwater and snowmelt, which forms a large underground reservoir.

These have to be the most amazing falls in CA. We walked along the trail that goes all the way around the falls and we also went down onto the rocky floor near the falls to feel the spray from the falls. The amount of water pouring down is mind blowing. It's also fun to sit and watch for birds to come darting out from behind the waterfall curtain. The camp ground is nicely spread out. Pretty good facilities. We stayed in a cabin that was good for two people and gear. It was too close to the road, however and the sound of trucks would keep you awake if you didn't have ear plugs. there is a squirrel problem at this campground. They have been fed by humans so much they are not afraid of them. We had to resort to water bottle tactics in the evening. Use the critter locker!
