Be advised: We are legit in the wilderness- take directions seriously, this is like actually real life... OK Do not blindly use GPS! Maps are not correct and do not show dirt roads and will try to drive you off a cliff. Read directions carefully then look at the map before departure. Follow directions and use odometer. Trust the signs. Stay on well traveled forest service road & do not turn unless you see a sign!

● DIRECTIONS: FILL UP GAS in Redding (from North) and in Red Bluff (South) 

-  From Red Bluff take Highway 36 west 47 miles 

-  Right turn onto Harrison Gulch Road

(10 miles past Platina in the Shasta-Trinity National Forest just past the Ranger Station. Destination is 13 miles from highway36, road will become gravel in about 2 miles continue for another 3 miles to the fork) 

Follow the signs to "Deerlick Springs National Forest Campground" 

-   Hard left U-turn up hill at the fork then in about 1000feet turn Right

(Get assistance if you are confused about right and left! Do not go right at fork is 30 mile dirt road to Douglas City)

-  Follow the National Forest Service Road 01 for another 5.5 miles to the end of the road, you will end up in the Deerlick Springs National Forest Campground pull up to the general store and wait for your host. Once on-site do not use message system please ask hosts directly for any needed assistance please.

●   From North: Warning!  Alternate GPS route from North: Douglas City and is a 30 mile dirt road, that will put hair on your chest- to top it off maps are not correct. Some people love it, some people end up on their knees praying. Take alternate routes at your own risk, not advised.

-  From Redding take i5 South past Anderson take Bowman Road exit, right onto Bowman Road and follow until meets Highway 36 make right onto the highway headed West and follow directions from Red Bluff.

This is a beautiful gem of a place! The camping areas are in amongst the tall beautiful trees and some are next to a running stream. It’s a short hike to the mineral baths area. It may be 9 miles in on a mostly dirt road, which is in good shape, but it is definitely worth it! The hosts Kari and Cody are full of information about the history of the place! At one time that place used to be quite a busy settlement! Just make sure you gas up before heading there as there are no services out that way. There is a small store there in Deerlick Springs Campground.

Beautiful! Cannot wait to stay there again. The drive is a bit long but the quiet and solitude in late September absolutely worth it.

This diamond in the rough was perfect for a get away weekend! The sites are super spacious and the hosts super friendly! I appreciated the flush toilets and access to the outdoor sink. The forest was peaceful and I enjoyed exploring the mineral springs along the creek. I look forward to returning.

Great place to stay! Remote location and campsites are distanced from each other so it is very quiet and relaxing. Has flushing toilets and a sink. High clearance vehicle did not seem necessary, but I assume taking my Cherokee made the drive in/out quicker.

Hosts are wonderful people and ice at the store is great resource in the summer heat. So is the wonderful creek, teeming with birds, insects, garter snakes, and other animals.

Trinity Outpost was an awesome campsite! The camp hosts were very friendly and helpful, and the land was gorgeous. I enjoyed walking along the trails, seeing the old bath houses, and taking a dip in the swimming holes along the creek. The road to get there is long and windy, but if you follow the Host's instructions you'll have no problem. This was a great spot to get away from it all and enjoy the sounds of nature. I hope I can come back soon!

This campsite was IDEAL! Seriously so perfect. The drive to the site was gorgeous and you don’t have phone service on the road there or at the site which was awesome because it makes you unplug and hang out. There is a general shop walking distance from the site that has good WiFi you have access to if you need it. The site we stayed at was located next to a running creek that was nice to fall asleep to. We appreciated the bathrooms that had clean, flushing toilets. The site is located on an old homestead and I wish we could have stayed longer.

Totally worth it and especially enjoyed cooling down in the creek and mineral springs. The owners have a really nice story if you get a chance to talk with them. Follow the directions and trust that the windy gravel road you go down is headed to the right place. One love
