I chose this area specifically because it was dark and had a good view of the night sky. We saw the milky way galaxy and the area was safe and quiet for the night. Will visit again in the future.

This is just as described except there is no swimming hole as mentioned. The land is rocky and flat in spots. Super open but we found a private spot down the trail. We wanted a large open area to try out our yurt. It worked great! Nina was a very gracious host. No running water or shower. Manual flush toilet and power at the barn if you need to charge. Buckets of water upon request.

I loved tent camping on Nina’s land. Very nice and secluded. We came all the way from Southern California had a 10 hour drive and was able to stop in weed for souvenirs then go to Nina’s camp sites. She had a lot of space and different options for camp sites. We went across the street and turned left, drove down and camped about 40 feet from the fence. When we woke up there was cows all around on the other side of the fence. An amazing thing to wake up too. Traveled with my two cats and husband and we all had a great time. She also has a cute Airbnb if you are not down with the camping. She also had multiple fire pits. Was able to be close to our car. Very nice. Definitely would camp there again on our next road trip.

Nina was so supportive when I locked my keys in my car. She made sure I could get roadside assistance and her help was vital. The land is amazing, too.

Lovely land. Nina is very accommodating and thoughtful. Her land crosses hwy 3 so there is some traffic noise but it also abuts Klamath national forest land. I would stay here again

Property was just as described. Primitive camp. Private, quiet, safe. We were just going through the area for a night and wanted a safe place to camp out of our vehicle. Hosts were hospitable and welcoming.

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.

Thank you, Norm, we'd be happy to host you again any time. We're slowly adding amenities; we now have one outhouse and one site with a table, sitting bench, and fire ring. Firewood is available too.

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.

Hi, Christopher, thanks so much for posting all the details about the area for the other campers. We now have one "improved" site with an outhouse, table, bench, and fire ring. Firewood is available for purchase here, or bring your own. Always call first to see if fires are being allowed: https://www.co.siskiyou.ca.us/airpollution/page/burn-day-information see also: https://www.readyforwildfire.org/prevent-wildfire/campfire-safety/ We hope you come back this way soon; you're always welcome here.
