I have been coming to Burney falls for over 20 years. It never fails to amaze me. The hike to the falls is an easy one. Absolutely breathtaking. There's plenty of picnic tables and areas to walk, definitely recommend this if you're anywhere nearby.

I've gone to Burney Falls many times, both as a child and as an adult. It's one of my all-time favorite places on earth. The waterfall has just as much water in the driest weather as in the wet. It all starts from a natural...More

The trail was easy. It was a Sunday afternoon in December. We had the whole park to ourselves. There was absolutely no one there. Absolutely beautiful and stunning.

Every chance we get we come here. We've yet to camp but even a day trip is worth it. This is a beautiful hike, not so dog friendly on the paved trail. The kids love to jump on the rocks and we love watching them.

We camp here every year. Beautiful trails. The lake at times can have a lot of algae depending on the rain fall that year. the little store is a nice treat with the heat to get some ice cream.

We wanted to camp here, but they only take cash in the off-season so we got a hotel in town. Went to the falls early the next morning. Walking down to the falls, you don’t expect it to open up to such a magnificent scene!

Beautiful, so beautiful! Go and take the hike around the Falls. It is amazing and soothes the soul! Unless you walk in, it's a $10 day fee. Worth it!

We are delighted you had a soothing and inspiring walk. This is a spectacular time of year to visit, in part because it is more quiet. Thanks for your review! McArthur Burney Falls Interpretive Association
