We didn't have much time, so we hiked only one trail. Falls trail loop was amazing. We loved falls. Fresh air and cold water, give you good vibes and emotion.

Lovely place. Can't believe I had never been here before. Some of my family would stay here every summer for 2 weeks they loved it so much.

This is a great State Park in the middle of a California forest. Admission fee is $8, but there are good restrooms, a gift shop and a museum. (The museum seems to close about 3 p.m. some days.) A few hundred feet walk takes visitors to a waterfall overlook. The view is spectacular and the falls are one of Northern... More

This is a very unique waterfalls, unlike any i have seen. This small state park is worth every penny. There is a nice walking trail that takes you down to the base of the falls and back above at stream level upriver. The Geology of this falls is what makes it so unique. The twin main streams of this falls... More

Breathtaking beauty hidden in the redwoods. You can't imagine these falls exist in the midst of a volcanic national park. A beautiful drive through the mountains to reach this masterpiece. Walking down to the base of the falls is easy on a well groomed and paved path. Can seem steep at a few spots for those physically limited but easy... More

We pulled into Burney Falls State Park after hearing about it for many years from our son who had visited many times. The falls were very beautiful with about 1 million gallons of water flowing over and through it everyday. Not just did water come over the top, but also out up and down the whole falls through underground shoots.... More

Wonderful place for a stop on the drive between Reno and Northern California/Oregon. We have stopped here twice now, once in winter and once in summer, and the waterfall is always amazing. Very nice place to take pictures and get a break from driving. There are also picnic and camping areas available. In the summer there is a store as... More

Great camp site. Somewhat less well known. A bit of a distance from the Bay Area nestled between Mount Shasta and Mount Lassen near the Oregon Border. We stayed in the cabins that are really clean and nice. Good Washroom facilities as well. Mattresses are provided in the cabins. The Lake and Beach are really nice. Note that since it... More

We knew we had the option of visiting this place for free by parking on the other side of the river, close to the loop trail, but we decided we would not bother. The entrance fee was worth it as it gave access to several uncrowded picnic areas and to the small visitor center. The visitor center is doing a... More
