The Perry Riffle parking lot in the Sacramento River Bend Area BLM allows camping. It is the only location in the BLM area that does. The access road is paved the entire way. There are a few tight turns on the way in, but a 42' 5th wheel triple towing a Jeep was able to make it, so any rig size should be fine. It is a gravel lot that can fit 3-4 large rigs, but you will be close together. You could fit a couple more rigs if you squeezed in, but quite a few people stop for fishing, biking, and horseback riding, so you should leave some space for them to park and turn around. If you park parallel in the middle of the lot, it will leave room for horse trailers to turn around using the outside edge of the lot.

There is a large tree on one side of the lot, but if you stay a little away from it, you'll get plenty of solar. AT&T signal was weak but usable unboosted (~2 mbps down, less up), and Verizon was a little worse. With a MIMO antenna, though, both AT&T and Verizon had very usable speeds (~25 mbps down, 5 mbps up on Verizon).

Two BLM staff live in the area and came by at least once a day to empty the trash (not a dumpster but big enough for a kitchen bag) and recycling and clean the pit toilets.

You can walk down to the water from the lot, and you also have access to hiking/biking trails in the area. Warning about biking, though - we took a ride on the Yana trail and came back with 4 flat tires. There are a lot of small spikey plants. We used the site as a base camp to visit Lassen Volcanic National Park. It was a bit far, but it was also much warmer than free spots closer to the park.

I highly recommend Carlito's Mexican in Red Bluff, if you're looking for a place to eat. The portions are large and reasonably priced, and the food is delicious.
