Private, wooded area available for primitive camping or RV for $15 per night.  Views are amazing.  Swimming hole nearby.  Right off Highway 3 between Etna and Callahan, California.  Or, camp across the street with an old horse for company. Gate must be kept closed so horse doesn't escape.  One hour drive to Mt. Shasta or Ashland. Groceries, massage, hardware store, laundry, showers, restaurants in Etna 8 miles away.  Farmer's market in Etna on Saturday morning. Not far from PCT trailhead outside of Callahan CA.   Near Kangaroo lake for fishing, hiking, & boating. I see lots of bicycle groups and motorcycle groups going by every summer. We're at 3000 feet elevation, so nights are cool even in the summer.  Bright stars. We have our own UFO. Air fresh and clean.  Minimal mosquitos due to dry climate. Spring water available at no extra charge.

This camping spot is located about halfway between Etna and Callahan. We first noticed how absolutely quiet it was after we stopped, really one of the quietest places I have been. Being away from any street lights also meant that we saw the Milky Way every night.

Camping here will work best for people who have fully equipped vehicles or trailers that have their own cooking facilities, shower, and toilet. As we were tenting, we hauled water to flush the toilet, and also for cooking our breakfast each morning.

The host is very friendly and knows the area very well. She was very helpful when we set up our reservation, and provided excellent tips about where to get supplies, meals, etc.,

Etna has a grocery store, along with two breweries (Paystreak being the much better one), and the excellent Denny Bar restaurant. The surrounding area is outstanding for bicycling, and also close to the Pacific Crest Trail.

We stayed here to have seclusion and we had the forest to ourselves. We chose to tent camp on the dirt driveway among the trees. It was the flattest spot with shade and our car was next to us. Nina provided us with lots of water we used for washing and drinking. She also brought a table and chairs. Most of our time was visiting the lava caves and Shasta, so we drove extra to get back to the highway. It's about 50 mins to the I-5 so plan accordingly. We had all the water, coffee, supplies, groceries, restrooms we needed in Weed and Mt. Shasta so we didn't miss/need them when camping. This place is ideal if you want to be away from other campers or tourists or will be exploring areas off the main highway. Be prepared to be self sufficient as this is primitive camping. We had no AT&T cell service and didn't use wifi. We washed up each evening from a bucket of water, though there are showers in Etna, 8 miles away. The road is quiet after dark and we woke to the birds singing each morning. Quail, nighthawks, blackbirds, robins, frogs and more were singing and calling at dusk and dawn. Temps were pleasant for our stay in June. 50's overnight and 70's in the evenings when we returned. It's not for every one, but you'll enjoy it if this is your kind of camping.
