Burney - McArthur-Burney Falls Memorial State Park24898 Volcanic Legacy Scenic Byway
Burney, California 96013
There are quite a few fun things to do at the park but the waterfall is the highlight that draws people from all over. It's a stunning display of nature that literally pours over and through its base.
Around the waterfall there is an easy 1.3-mile walk that is worth taking and provides different vantage points of it.
There is also a marina where you can rent boats (or bring your own) and play in Lake Britton or hang out on some of the park's five miles of coastline enjoying a picnic, playing and swimming!
Fishing is a popular activity here so don't forget your poles when you make the trip. There is also a store, gift shop and much more.
There are 121 camp spots available and cabins that can be rented. Visit our Camping Section for more information about camping here.
How to get there:
The park is located off of Highway 89; north of Highway 299. You'll see the entrance from the road. Our handy map will give you more specific directions.
Both the campgrounds and cabins need to be reserved ahead of time.
Other fun things to do in the area:
To the east, visit the wonders of Ahjumawi Lava Springs in McArthur or visit the Fort Crook Museum in Fall River Mills. South of Highway 44 on Highway 89, the Hat Creek Radio Observatory is an interesting visit as is the Subway Cave Lava Tube.
