Find Campsites





Don't own an RV? We've got you covered!

You don't need a tent or an RV to enjoy one of the most beautiful mountain settings in California. McArthur-Burney Falls State Park offers you access to the new-get-away-from-it-all rental cabins.

Twenty-four one and two-bedroom cabins are located within walking distance from the Falls and the beautiful new camp store. Each of these new cabins is well-insulated against chilly nights and is equipped with propane heaters, platform beds with foam pads, wood floors, and covered porches. Cabins are offered in two sizes, an 18-foot cabin with one set of twin-size bunk beds and a 24-foot cabin with two sets of twin-size bunk beds. These cabins also have extra mattresses that can be used on the floor, making the sleeping capacity for the 18-foot model 4 persons and 6 persons for the 24-foot cabin. Cabins come with a fire ring for campfires, outdoor table, and space to pitch a tent outside. All rental cabins are a short walk from a restroom with flush toilets and showers. All you need to bring are some sleeping bags and a battery-powered lantern or two (the cabins have no electricity).

The 129-foot waterfall is the main attraction of the park. 100 million gallons of water flow over the falls each day. Additional water comes from springs, joining to create a mist-filled basin. Black swifts nest in the cliff behind the falls and rare nests of Bald Eagles can be seen along the shore line of Lake Britton. The park has six miles of hiking trails through evergreen forest. Lake Britton offers water sport activities.
