What a wonderful and special visit! The site is better than pictured, with a stunning view of Mt Shasta. The high desert is gorgeous and our hosts were so sweet! Upon arrival they brought their pup Lucy out to greet myself, my boyfriend and our pup; they even gifted us a little bowl of freshly picked tomatoes from their garden and blackberries from Shasta - so generous! The site was flat, had a spigot with fresh well water, and was perfect for our tent setup. Super easy access from the 97 and there was some awesome Mexican food a short drive into Weed. The sunset was gorgeous and the stargazing was incredible - couldn’t have asked for a better evening.

Nancy and Richard’s high desert campsite was lovely! Plenty of space, great picnic table, and the stars were beautiful. Nancy and Richard were friendly and communicative, and Lucy the Dog was welcoming (once she’d confirmed we were friendly :-) We’d love to come back and explore the area more!

Incredible view of Mt Shasta. Try to arrive before sunset, because the road is pretty dark otherwise...

Nancy and Richard's campsite was exactly as expected. Richard greeted us with cookies and fresh berries (yum) and then gave us our privacy for the rest of the evening.

The campsite is essentially at the front their property (which has a house and shed on premises), but the house is set back a ways and does not diminish the beauty of the area. The site has expansive views of Mt. Shasta, and the surrounding shrubs totally mask the nearby dirt roads. There is also a great water spout near the site and a picnic table, which makes camping much easier.

There are some amazing nearby attractions, such as Pluto's cave (if you are feeling daring and have a trusted headlamp), and the Living Memorial Sculpture Park. A couple little gems that may be out of the way in any other situation.

Overall, a very nice stay!
