Used to live in Burney, and Burney Falls is probably the biggest attraction in town. The hike down to the falls is refeshing, and it's amazing just to sit a watch the falls. Also a good place to hike, as there are lots of trails throughout the park. There are also campsites and horseback riding facilities.

We enjoyed Burney Falls! So lovely at the base of the waterfalls. Plenty of water, even for this time of year (September).

In Burney. There is an easy hike around the waterfall. This is not convenient for handicapped., although you can see the Falls without hiking. There is a lovely lake for boating and swimming, and you can camp or park an RV.

Doesn't get a lot of attention in comparison to other nearby parks, but it's definitely worth a stop if you are in the area and like waterfalls. It's a relatively short downhill hike from the parking lot down to the falls. There's a pretty significant temperature differential when you get down near the falls, so if you get cold easily...

We thoroughly enjoyed hiking down to this waterfall! The blue pool below is a treat for the eyes! There was still so much water in the middle of summer! Will definitely come back again.

Gorgeous falls. Hiking here is easy and access to the top of the falls is a very short, easy walk. Lots of families come here to camp, picnic, and use the paddleboats. Worth a visit if you're staying in Mount Shasta or near Lassen National Park and like waterfalls.

Awesome falls. The brave swim in the 40 degree water, but not for long! There is a store and a visitor center. There may be camping too, but i am not sure. Easy walk, only .3 to bottom from top of trail.

A beautiful place to spend the night camping . The waterfall was beautiful and the fall loop was a relaxing walk. We did an evening swim at the lake and watched the sunset from the beach. The campsite was lovely and the bathrooms clean and the showers hot. We were on the way north so we only spent a night,... More
