“Great Little Free Campground”

Overall Rating

Very nice location in the Shasta-Trinity National Forest, about 20 minutes west of the town of Mt. Shasta. Campsites are free, first-come first-served, and there are only 5 of them (the 6th one is taken by the camp host); maximum stay is three days (changed from 14 days) and campsites fill up quickly. The sites are large and relatively private, with level areas for parking as well as for pitching tents. Each site has a large concrete picnic table and a large fire ring with a grill. There are two pit toilets but no water or trash cans are available.The campground is located 1/2 mile from Castle Lake where there is swimming, fishing, small boating, etc. The area is quiet and peaceful and has easy access to the nearby lakes and towns.
