Description

Howard’s Gulch Campground sits in a tree-lined gulch in Modoc National Forest. Set back from the highway, the campground is convenient to reach, but still feels quiet and secluded. Take the short nearby hiking trail through pine, aspen, and wildflowers, and watch for the many species of birds, including the white-headed woodpecker.

This place is amazing! It is a birding area with lovely forest and stone formations. We were the only ones at the site. We found a wild turkey's skeleton, hunted dragon flies and hiked around a bit. The only negatives were the highway- it is well traveled by big rigs- and gnarly bathrooms. However, it was a beautiful spot for a one night stay on our way up to Crescent Lake.
