Access to this site can be difficult for larger rigs, but those who can fit will be rewarded with a special piece of the forest. This area is a nice, flat landing with partial to full sun. We had no issues staying charged via solar, despite having partial shade at certain parts of the day. We had both AT&T and Verizon, although Verizon was on the slower side.

There’s room for at least 3-4 small rigs in this little area, with plenty of space in between.

You won’t see much by way of traffic here, because the National Forest road continues and goes up a steep hill. We did see a couple folks drive in, but didn’t stay long. Only one set of older folks hiking. Otherwise it was very peaceful.

Dump and water are at the Pilot down in the town of Weed, 15 minutes away. Groceries can be found at the local grocery store, and there’s a Glacier water refill right out front for drinking water.

The area is rich in geographic history due to Mount Shasta (8 miles away) being a (now dormant) volcano. Along with the views of Mount Shasta, you can also see the tops of old lava flows (one mile away). Be sure to check out Plutos Cave down 97 North of here. It’s a really cool lava tube that’s free to explore. Also, there’s a kinda freaky tree circle if you walk down the main forest road (towards the SouthEast).
