McCloud - McCloud FallsFowler Public Camp Road
McCloud, California 96057
Three beautiful waterfalls in one park is what you get when you visit McCloud Falls just east of McCloud. The park is known for its great trails, incredible fishing in the McCloud River and remote yet accessible camping but it's the three waterfalls; Lower, Middle and Upper, that are the jewels of this park. You can reach each waterfall by car but we highly recommend that you make the 4-mile round-trip hike to see them all; they're really pretty incredible.
Swimming and wildlife viewing are also popular activities in the park.
At an elevation of 3400 feet, its 39 sites welcome you with tables, fire-rings, vault toilets and piped drinking water. $15/night and you need to make a reservation. This campground is very popular and we suggest you make your reservation as early as possible.
