Campgrounds

The Mount Shasta area has a variety of campgrounds. Most of these facilities are operated by the National Forest Service. They range from high elevation sites adjacent to alpine lakes to campgrounds on the banks of the Sacramento and McCloud Rivers. Two campgrounds are on the flanks of Mount Shasta itself.

Dispersed camping is also permitted throughout the national forest. Email me at bubba(dot)suess(at)hikemtshasta.com for specific dispersed camping recommendations!

  1. What a fantastic site you have created! We are headed to the Trinity Alps to do some dispersed camping in July. Any tips on where we might head to find a spot on a creek/river somewhere?
    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

  2. My sister, her three children, and I are trying to plan a trip this July. I’m unable to book any type of reservation for a site in the national park and am worried we wont have a spot to go to when we arrive. Are my worries in vain, are there many places to camp? Where would you suggest we camp, do you think I should book outside the park to ensure a spot, and if so where? Thanks

    • First, there is no national park, just a national forest, which makes a difference, since national parks are far busier. As far as camping, most of the sites should have room. If worse comes to worse, places lake Lake Shastina don’t fill up. I would also call the Lake Siskiyou Resort. They have a huge campground!

  3. Looking to camp with our teardrop as we travel through the area on our way to Napa in a few weeks, Avid campers/hikers. We have 3-4 days to check it out and want to do several moderate level hikes. Your best recommendations for both to those who haven’t been to Shasta before would be greatly appreciated.
