Shasta-Trinity is the largest national forest in California with a diverse landscape encompassing five wilderness areas, hundreds of mountain lakes and 6,278 miles of streams and rivers.

Anglers can fish for trout, catfish, Chinook salmon, crappie, bluegill, white sturgeon, brown bullhead and bass.

All campsites have picnic tables, fire rings, tent pads, bear boxes and paved parking spurs. Vault toilets and drinking water are provided.
