    Nice little camp ground to spend a day or two on the way to destinations like Crater Lake or Burney Falls. There are several loops that can accommodate hikers to RVs, but most sites are better suited to Tents. There is a pretty 3 – 4 mile river trail walk accessible from upper campground loops by a tunnel under the interstate. Easy to navigate. The short waters are great for tubing or fishing. Or you can just park your camp chair in the water and read a book. Bring a picnic and enjoy it in the day use area of the Riverside loop.
    In the upper campground loops it’s a short hike from site 38 to the Vista point. You can look at Mt. Shasta or the Castle Crags through a telescope.
    The restroom was fine and the showers were free and they were hot. Wear sandals. I was happy to have brought a clorox wipe for the faucet and a bag I could hang on the wall to hold my stuff. Plenty of water in the campground. There are sinks to wash dishes and you can recycle cans and bottles.
    The drawbacks to this campground are the relentless yellow jackets and the never ending noise from the Interstate 5. We stayed in site 11 and it was noisy. We did have earplugs. We also spent a night at site 42 and it was less noisy. If you camp at the Riverside loop, you will have to feel as well as listen to the long and loud whistle of the Union Pacific trains that may roll through very late at night. The nearby town of Dunsmuir is OK for a gas and a grocery stop but that’s about all they have to offer.
