Local Area Attractions
Look around at the peaceful campground and watch the wind ruffle the leaves and pine needles way up top. The only sounds are coming from the creek, birdsong, and the deep hum of the many Hummingbirds that love your feeders. The dappled sunlight sneaks through the trees hinting at the coming summer... Campfires, BBQs, and fishing. Yesterday's rain gives off the slightest scent, and brings me hope that Morel mushrooms might make an appearance this year. Just a little ways over a deer slowly walks by, grazing on the lush greens... Do I ever have to leave?
Perfect for a day trip, Eureka is a two-hour drive from the campground. Named one of the "Top 10 Travel Hot Spots for 2007," Eureka is in the heart of the Redwood Empire - where you will find the tallest living trees on Earth. Established in 1850 as a commercial logging and fishing port town, Eureka offers many historical sites as well.
Trinity River Scenic Byway
"From the Valley Oaks to the Redwood Coast" is the theme of a beautiful drive from the Sacramento River Valley to the stunning Redwood Coast. Follow the same path as Gold Rush-era stagecoaches while you take in an array of geographical wonders. For more information, visit the Shasta Cascade Region online.
