The Great Outdoors

There’s something thrilling about visiting Northern California. Although Mount Shasta hasn’t erupted in nearly 600,000 years, it’s classed as a dormant volcano instead of an extinct one because deep in the bowels of the earth, Mount Shasta remains ominously active. Simmering and brewing, waiting for the right time to, quite literally, blow its top. Though the risk of this occurring anytime soon is slim to none, many adventurers enjoy the thought of cresting the top of a volcano. It’s a death-defying thrill.Surrounding Mount Shasta is Shasta-Trinity National Forest, which sprawls over 2.2 million acres of mountains, valleys, plains, forests, rivers, and lakes. There are an estimated 460 miles of trails that wind and weave through the park. Hikers and adventurers seeking solitude and quiet can easily find it by taking one of the less-traveled paths. It’s quite common to go days without seeing another human soul on the same trail. Various wild animals may, on occasion, be sighted as they go about their business foraging and hunting. An additional 154 miles, which is just a small fraction of the 2,653-mile-long Pacific Crest Trail, meander through the park as it travels from Canada to Mexico,Bring a camera or binocular. Wildlife teems within the woods of Shasta-Trinity National Forest. A shortlist includes wolves, bald eagles, black bears, and several species of deer. Several scenic waterfalls, including the picturesque Burney Falls and McCloud Falls, can be found in the area, many of which are conveniently a short trek from the roadside.

Exploring the Area

As tempting as it is to spend your entire RV camping trip hunting waterfalls and watching deer frolic in a meadow, the small mountain towns are equally full of charm and interesting activities. Dunsmuir line the banks of Sacramento River, which is a Blue Ribbon Trout fishing stream. The town also regularly hosts weekend festivals, some of which include Dogwood Daze, Railroad Days, and Tribute to the Trees. It’s also especially well-known for the Dunsmuir Botanical Garden, which is populated by Shasta lilies, rhododendrons, hostas, and native alpine plants.Step back into time at Fort Crook Museum in Fall River Mills. The museum is housed in a former 1857 U.S. Army post, and on display are various tools, artifacts, and memorabilia that were handed down through the generations of local families that still reside in the area. The lumber industry was once an important part of the area’s commerce, and Weed has established a museum to honor that heritage. The Weed Historic Lumbertown Museum has a collection of photographs and documents of the original residents of the town. Also on display are jail cells, tools from the town’s lumber store, and large pieces of equipment that were used to cut and move logs.At the end of a long day of hiking and exploring the historic towns, relax by the crackle of a campfire and watch the stars faintly illuminate snow-clad Mount Shasta to the north.Find your perfect RV camping adventure in northern California when you book an RV in Siskiyou County.

Questions about RVs?


What type of RV should I choose?


Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Do the RVs have bathrooms?


Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


How does check-in work?


Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
