8 Parks near Burney, California
Jun 2015 - $31.00
Small park, mostly full-timers and rigs used as "cabins". Only three overnighter spots when we were there. Very quiet park & residents except for one truck starting up in morning. Concrete patio with picnic table. No campfires. No WiFi or cell service. - PasoTravelSmiths
May 2015 - $27.00
Level, back-in site, gravel and ours had a concrete pad with picnic table and shade. WiFi worked great. No antenna TV reception or cable, most folks had satellite. 30-amp electric, water and sewer. Quite a few full time residents, no problems and quiet at night. Restroom and shower were old, but worked fine and were clean. Only a mile away from McArthur-Burney Falls State Park. Owners are friendly. Good location and value for the price. - zigzag

I love parks in the mountains/forest and this was all that. Our "backyard" was miles of forest. WiFi worked fine for us, no TV but very clear view for satellite dish, very friendly. My RV combination is 55 ft long and we fit in a back-in site. I would stay here for a week or two for sure...quiet and peaceful. When coming from Shasta don't take the first Clark Creek road, take the second one. - forreal

Campground is spacious. We thought it might be noisy as some sites had large families, but they were all very quiet. There is an $8 transaction fee. Park has a lake and beach and we didn't use it but will next time. The falls are spectacular. Our site was level. All sites had picnic table and fire ring. Lots of cabins. The store was nice. The visitor center was open limited hours (11-3) and had Wi-Fi while open. No cell signal. We drove to Burney for Verizon 4G, 10 miles, where we also found Safeway. Trails are limited due to park size but we enjoyed them. - bdornbush

Nice, well kept park with lots of shade but no hookups. - Go often

Nice wooded campground. Lots of tall trees. We had no trouble with paved interior roads in a 30ft travel trailer, using care. Sites not too unlevel. No sewer, no electricity, water spigots randomly in the area. No Verizon cell signal. Flush toilet restrooms with pay showers. Each site has picnic table and fire ring. Generators OK after 10am. Nice general store. Nice waterfalls, and lake with fishing, boat rentals and swimming. Our friends were in a cabin, hard mattresses, built in bunk beds, no furniture, no electricity or water. - trussman

Very family friendly. We stayed over holiday weekend so very crowded, and some campers were not good about keeping their dogs on leash, but camp hosts talked to them about it. Some sites are VERY close together-we couldn't use our awning because our neighbors were using theirs, but it did shade our doorway as well. We found sites we like for next visit - 17, 58, 94, 13. - vanvfam

Any first impressions or negative remarks are only to be constructive. At check in I found the clerk to be friendly & courteous. Arriving at my site (94) I felt it was very close to my neighbors. Although backing in my trailer was not that difficult I had to position my trailer so I could fit my awning between two trees (no room for adjustments). The hookups were a little difficult. The sewer hookup was at the back & easy to connect. The electric & water were at the front and had to use my extra water hose and all of my electric cord. There was no table at my site and the fire pit had been dismantled. I dragged the table from the empty site next to me and rebuilt the rock fire pit. Workers walked right into my campsite and walked right by me looking for the table never saying a word to me. I thought this was rude. I was thinking I had made a mistake camping here. But the campers were very nice and watchful of my grand kids riding their bikes. Invited us to watch them paraglide at a nearby glider spot. No more negative incidents. I enjoyed the rest of our stay. Very family safe place not hard on the eyes. I will camp there again. - Rick Robinson

Price quoted for full hookup site. Have been camping here for decades and are never disappointed. Quiet, some minor highway noise during the day, but not at night. Roads in/out & thru the campground are dirt, but during summer they have a water truck that sprays them down. Sites range from dirt tent sites to full hookup grass sites. Most sites are back in, but we've never had a problem backing into any site. Sites are always cleaned for new arrivals. The main bathhouse consists of toilets to the right and a row of showers with curtains to the left, all kept very clean. There is another bathroom (toilets only) towards the back of the campground, also kept very clean. Camp store well stocked. Pond for fishing (fee) and roped off swimming area. Grass area for kids to play, large gazebo with ping pong table, and a horseshoe pit. Free Wifi (Tengonet) and we've never had a problem connecting, even from the rear of the park.
The only 'downsides' are no cable (your satellite will work in most sites) and virtually NO cell service (pay phone available, but you must have a long distance card).
Highly recommend for a family friendly, quiet, rustic 'getaway' from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. - QueenofQuitealot

Nice park about 20 miles from Lassen Volcanos NP. Easy check in but roads and spaces could be marked better. Our space was a pull thru that was fairly level with full hook ups, fire ring and picnic table. No Verizon phone service and wireless was unusable. Good for a night or two but not a destination. Would stay here again. - Budapest

Nice park nestled in the pines. Courteous hosts at check in which is also a decent little store for basic re-supply as well as a small restaurant and ice cream parlor. Paved main entry then gravel sites. We were away from the pond which turned out to be a good thing as there were swarms of bugs in that area; didn't seem to bother the families that were in the sites surrounding that area. Good electric, water and dump. Trash dumpster looked as if an animal had picked its way through and tossed what it didn't want; my spouse cleaned it up when taking out our trash but we noticed it just as messy upon our exit so perhaps the offender was still inside? (don't tell my wife!) Will return if we are in the area. - pyrthkr

A good camping experience, lots of pine trees and shade. The Park is immaculate, the owners keep the grounds in excellent condition. Gravel and dirt sites, ours was level, full hook up, picnic table, with a fire pit. Fish pond, café, small store supplies on site. Wi-Fi was limited (office area) and restrictive (password was good for 2-hours only). Cable TV had 13 channels. Bathrooms and showers were clean, individual shower stalls with curtain and dressing area. Owners are very friendly and informative. Some road noise, but quiet at night. - zigzag

This campground is not for big rigs - 30' maximum. There are flush toilets and water spigots. It is next to a busy highway and many logging trucks and other semis pass the road. There is a dump station a couple miles away at the national forest visitor center. The only plus is the pleasant-looking Hat Creek which runs through the park. - nbi600

We stayed here for 5 nights in a group spot with friends. It is dry camping, although they do have spigots, for water and pit toilets around the campground. There is a creek that we fished in and had a good time. You are in a forest, and there is trees, so if you're looking to get a signal for Dish or Direct TV.....good luck!! Anyway, I would most definitely stay here again as you are kind of centralized to the Volcanoes, Burney Falls, the volcanic caves, and Lake Britian. - mike3245

This is a nice Forest Service campground spread out along Hat Creek. The sites are large and can accommodate small to medium size rigs. There is at least one restroom with flush toilets and there are pit toilets as well. Water is available in the campground but not at individual sites. There is no dump station. We liked this campground because it was clean, quiet and picturesque. There is a small general store at Old Station, one mile away, and I believe there is also a cafe and gas station there too. The trail head for the Spatter Cones Nature Trail is across the road from the campground. We'd stay here again. - BruceandKathyWA

I stayed here one night. No amenities. Good for fishing Hat Creek as it flows through the campground. Only has pit toilets and a water faucet. A campground Host was on site and was helpful with local sites to see. Close to Hwy-44 so some noise. If you like to rough it, this is your spot. - zigzag

When we first arrived we were pretty pleased - there were plenty of trees! However it quickly devolved from there. The roads inside the park were very confusing and not marked in the slightest. There were so many trees so close together that getting anywhere was a little difficult. The first spot we were directed to was so narrow our smaller, 22 foot long, maybe 12 foot wide, RV barely fit. We had to fold both sets of mirrors in and it was still close. It was just unacceptable, you couldn't have space enough to put out the sewer hose (the connection, which was in the ground at a really bad angle, was hard to find!) [spot 35]
They moved us to another spot (#38) that was better. Although still very confusing to get in and out of. The sewer hookup here was also at a weird angle, instead of pointing down to let gravity work, it was parallel to the ground and had no method to make the liquid drain into the connection, when you unhooked it spilled onto the ground.
The bathrooms were atrocious. They were very dirty at multiple points in a day, they were grimy and dark. Honestly felt like I'd come out dirtier than I went in if I showered there. There weren't many stalls for both toilet and shower for the sheer number of people in the park.
They offered wifi, and while they said it was accessible everywhere, it wasn't. You couldn't even connect next to the office. It was a joke, pure and simple. - NewYorkCountryGirl

Resort? Hardly! This campground is in major need of a make-over. The area is pretty with lots of trees and a creek but the whole place is totally run down. The one positive is we had a very helpful man guide us into our spot. The sign to "STOP and check-in at the store" is well past where you need to stop and check in at the store! The sites are very poorly marked. You really don't know what is a site and what is a road, as it is just all dirt and all the sites are just helter skelter. The hook-ups worked OK. The road or exit out was very poorly marked and full of pot holes. The bathrooms were horrible. I doubt they had been cleaned in years although the toilets did flush. This campground is in a good location for visiting Lassen Volcanic Natl Park but I would never stay here again. The volcanic dust gets into everything and everything is gritty. They need to add some gravel, define the sites, pave the sites or at the very least the road, so there isn't a constant cloud of dust. The motel looked very run down. The store was an absolute joke and since the nearest grocery store is almost 30 miles away, it was very disappointing. Cannot recommend this place at all. - CO 5th wheeler

Older RV park right on the creek. Several older RV's are used as vacation homes, most pretty run down. All the utilities worked well. Our space was a pull in. Very awkward for a travel trailer but the staff were helpful in getting in. Biggest gripe were the restrooms and showers. Just plain nasty and were that way the whole three days we were here. Park is crowded during the summer and many stroll or even ride bikes right through our camp site. - Trinityfly

This is a very nice, immaculately kept, campground. The sites are huge, level, and extremely private. The roads and sites are all freshly graded. It's totally quiet and peaceful. However we had very erratic Verizon cell service and wifi, which is probably to be expected in such a remote location. The owner was exceptionally nice and helpful. - Dapper

Came with about 30 Airstreams for a club rally. This is one of the best parks I've ever been to with or without the club.
My campsite has to be at least 12,000 sq. ft. with 180 degree view from the front door of nothing but trees, and open space. Quiet as a tomb, dark as a dungeon at night. Fantastic place to watch the stars at night.
The camp ground is perfect when it comes to modern amenities, all the picnic tables are solid, straight and look new. The utilities are perfect.
There's a beautiful swimming pool, great club house and the hosts do everything and then some to make your stay enjoyable. - xo1rider

Great place. As stated earlier, the new owners are giving it a complete face lift. Huge sites, I believe they are spread out over about 26 acres, the closest site to me was about 50 yards away. Some have stated that there is cable and WiFi but there is no cable and the WiFi is at the office. You can sit out on the porch and get it just fine. I will absolutely stay here again. The owner is a great guy and wants to do whatever he can to please you. I had a bad tire on my trailer and he gave me great advice on where to go for repairs, stopped back later to make sure that I got it taken care of, and even offered me a beer. I don't drink, but the gesture was appreciated. - taddyport
