The vibe at Blue Juniper
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
The terrain is mostly sand so be sure to bring a vehicle that can drive through sand. Nice views of Mt. Shasta. No amenities so you are roughing it a little. The campsite is next to some other private properties so you aren't able to explore too much due to crossing into other people's property area.
Blue Juniper was a last minute book for us. It turned out to be exactly what we needed...nothing more, nothing less. If this is on your path of travel and you need a place to camp for the night, it will work. We camp out of our van so we were limited to the "driveway" which is only a few car depths in length. There are a few sand spots to set up tent a short walk from your car, though. Nice views of Mt. Shasta. Unfortunately for us there was a huge amount of traffic from water trucks. I hypothesize that this is not usual and had something to do with the large amount of wildfires in northern CA at the time of our stay? I was happy to be able to book this within 2 hours before our arrival and the price is appropriate for the site. Contact from host was quick and directions were good - we found our way after sunset.
