The vibe at Mt. Shasta 360

The directions* to the campsite are a bit confusing, but once I did get there, it seriously took my breath away. I was there solo (with my pup), and it really was a spiritual experience. I can’t even imagine how fun it would be to have a full group out there! But the calmness of it was soul refreshing. Not to mention having that prime Shasta view all to myself.
Not a lot of shade (it was a sweltering 100 degrees) but one good Juniper and quite few solid tent spots with insane views of Shasta and the surrounding area. There was a little fire pit I didn’t end up using since it was just too hot to even need one.
As for the sunset, completely blew my mind. There were great horned owls hooting nearby and coyotes singing in the early morning, birds of all kinds flitting around and singing. It really was something I’ll never forget. Especially rolling out of my tent to see that beautiful mountain face staring back at me in the morning. It was as close as you could get to what it might have been like a couple of hundred years ago when no one else was around. Would love to go back!
*As the directions note, you’ll take a left at the tall white pole marker after the Keefe mailbox. Then, follow the road until there’s a split and stay right. Not long after, you’ll come upon a second split and see the Mosher real estate sign on the left. Turn left here and follow the road up over lots of sagebrush to the campsites. High clearance recommended and it’ll do a number on your car’s underside.
Despite it being in NorCal, it's very hot in the region during the summer, 3 digits - so pack properly. After the long hike we ate at Coco's, this great Mongolian BBQ in Redding, a city nearby.
This place was incredible. 360 degree views like I’ve never experienced before. And at night we say more stars than I though possible.
The site was easy enough to find. A little confusing. I’d suggest an SUV or truck with good tires. The middle sections of the dirt/rock roads were grown over with brush. In some cases 2’ off the ground. A car could still drive over then but it would be more at risk of cosmetic damage or something getting caught in the under carriage.
We were the only people for what seemed like miles. Total privacy. Totally peaceful. We went in July so it was HOT during the day. I’d suggest you bring a canopy of some sort for shade as there is none on site. To help stay out of the heat we drove to some longer hikes during the hot hours. Night time was chilly in a good way. Perfect sleeping temps. We would absolutely come back.
This was a fantastic campsite. The view is stunning, as it's situated directly on the ridge. Secluded and private, it feels like camping should. Very hot during the day FYI. Highly recommended -- many thanks to the hosts.
Separately, I'd recommend adding the directions Juliana (one of the other reviewers) made to the official listing. The given directions are... inaccurate, and miss a few turns -- we were thanking god for Juliana's good directions. In addition, here are the GPS coordinates for future campers: 41.5216260,-122.3518513.
