FOREST SPRINGS: 55 scenic miles northeast of Redding, we are160 acres in far northern California, surrounded by Shasta National Forest, near lakes and hot springs, with many shady hiking trails in the varied forest on our property, along our creek and to our small lake. In season, we have a splash pool in where guests like to relax in the afternoon. It is cleaned and refilled between guests. There is a doggie pool for the doggies, and of course they also enjoy our creek and lake. Dogs are welcome off leash! Some of our trails lead into the National Forest.

Off the property but nearby are hot springs, swimming holes, 2 larger lakes for boating and fishing, and impressive waterfalls. We are 60 miles NE of Redding, and 1 1/2 hours by car both from Mt. Shasta and Mt. Lassen National Park.

We are open April 1 to Nov 5 and offer tent camping, RV camping, and a complete Guesthouse. When we are closed, the phone is not working; please always use email.

From the pavement, we are at the end of a 1 1/2 mile decent gravel road, no 4-wheel drive needed. We have mostly gently rolling terrain with 2 hills, elevation about 2500’

If our rates seem high, it is because we only host one group at a time, for your peace and privacy. Besides the natural beauty, everyone notices the QUIET. Amazing stars, too!

    Forest Springs tent camping is a great place to get some of the creature comforts of home while still getting the full outdoors experience. The large property is intended to be explored as there are a series of trails that cover the majority of the property. Colette provided us with a map that is very detailed and pairs well with the marked trails. There are open meadows, thick forest, mountain ponds, and natural springs all at Forest Springs. The natural spring not only provides life to wild residents (flora and fauna alike) its power is also converted to provide electricity for this off-the-grid establishment. The property is well cared for and it is apparent that Colette has a deep love and respect for the land.

    The camping area is near large trees, close to the bathroom/showerhouse, and provides a sweeping view of the front meadow. Depending on the size of the group and the other guests for the weekend, camping location may vary, but either area is very nice. The area to pitch a tent is on grass, which is always a preferred surface for me. I also liked the small, dug-in fire-pits that were close to the sites. The pits also came with a metal grill that can be placed over the lava rock firepit.

    The highlight of the day was getting to soak in the large soaking tub that is filled with natural spring water. A small walk removed from any building or campsite, the tub gives a great view of the back meadow and forest beyond. I don't have any complaints about the property, as the off-the-beaten-path feel, the sites, and the environment are all top-notch. I definitely see myself coming back for a few nights so I can properly explore the property and the local area.
