Great spot with fantastic decor around the grounds. Plenty of space to roam and relax. The path to the campsite could use a little love, but not an issue in any way.

Super rad little campground back in a quiet area of Alturas. You park on the street and just have to carry your things in a short little way. The camp spots are pretty obvious and there is solar lighting to see at night which one to get to.

There are little benches too which is great, I was able to wake up and make some tea, sit and watch the sunrise and listen to the happy birds chirping.
From the drive up, it seems this campground may be in the middle of some houses in the country yet you would never know when you are here, it feels pretty private.
There were also some cool volcanic rocks on the property near my campsite, I'm super into volcanoes, so it was pretty neat-o.

This place was beautiful and very peaceful. I liked how it was close to the neighbors somewhat so that I could feel a little safe and you definitely get that nature feel when you’re camping.

I did not stay at this site. After arriving and discovered there was no cell service and the host was not there, I decided to continue driving.

I would recommend this site, this site is close to Alturas city. And very private and peaceful. Even during the wildfire season, the site doesn’t feel very smoky.

When we arrived, there’s no other campers stay here, there’s spacious of spaces for campers to stay. Host Robert is welcoming and gave us guidance about nearby point of interests.

Also, the place is about 1 h 15 mins away from Lavabeds NM, which is an awesome place to visit.

The only one thing to improve is guidance has some mistakes, it should be two blue reflection poles instead of orange, and the tent color is light gray-green instead of blue. But the location on google map is accurate, there should have no issue to find and follow it.

Raw land. No improvements at all not even driveway just a dirt track. I hit a big rock. Kind of a joke to call it a campground
