I have been familiar with this area since a wee old age of 2. I have spent many summers here camping, fishing and site seeing with my family. I have brought my own children here for the same reason. The Natural Beauty, fresh air, peace and tranquility. The Park Rangers are always friendly and helpful. There is a small store,... More

We arrived before anyone was attending the entrance shack. There was a sign saying there was an $8 fee and we were required to self register. Because we were enroute to Arizona and had only a few minutes to spend, we drove in to the parking area to see if it was something we'd like to return to on a... More

This State Park is one of the natural wonders in the Northstate and is a very popular park because of the natural falls, camping, hiking, special events, store facilities, photo opportunities, swimming at an adjoining lake and plenty of parking.

Gorgeous falls with beautiful and clean location for camping. Found this great spot when looking for an area to rest on the way to Reno. Turned out to be a treasure in the woods. There is a small store and welcome center. The bathrooms were individual and very clean. A must stop!

We camped here for the first time last weekend. It's amazing! The falls are beautiful, the loop trail is fun, the lake is gorgeous, and the campground is very nice. The campground was very clean, especially for the end of the season. Sometimes, by October, campgrounds are trashed and looking like they need some major cleanup and repairs during the... More

Burney Falls is located in MacArthur-Burney Falls Memorial State Park near the town of Burney in North Eastern California. This is a very nice state park with forest camping, cabins for rent, a decent size lake that can take motor boats, and of course the waterfall along with a very lovely valley with the river flowing through from the falls...

A very beautiful waterfall to see and experience. Lots of people come visit it. It truly is a Natural Beauty worth the drive to visit. Everyone who sees it loves it.

Great stop for enjoying this beautiful phenomenon. So peaceful and tranquil to just watch the falls in all their splendor. Great hiking around the falls and terrific for families. Great day trip when you are in the area.

One of the unknown gems to visit in California. As a photographer, I knew the falls to be a real trophy capture for photogs but this is a waterfall to beat any. Due to it being spring fed, it runs full year round with a tropical feel to it. Good paved path to the bottom and then on to lower... More
