WE WERE NOT BURNED OUT IN THE LAVA FIRE!!! SO GRATEFUL! It will be a bit burnt out as you drive in but once in your campsite you cannot see much if any of the burned area. This property is located just off the Volcanic Legacy Hwy 97 about 7 miles north of Weed, CA. Mount Shasta in full view all year round. There is a large snow mobile park about 15 miles further up Hwy 9
WE WERE NOT BURNED OUT IN THE LAVA FIRE!!! SO GRATEFUL! It will be a bit burnt out as you drive in but once in your campsite you cannot see much if any of the burned area. This property is located just off the Volcanic Legacy Hwy 97 about 7 miles north of Weed, CA. Mount Shasta in full view all year round. There is a large snow mobile park about 15 miles further up Hwy 97 that offers groomed trails in the winter and horseback riding paradise in the spring summer and fall. You must bring your own horse. I have limited unsheltered open chapparal electric fenced paddocks for boarding horses as well. You will have the shade of two large ponderosa trees in the morning and afternoon and a picnic table at Campsite #1 as well as a drive through circular driveway. Campsite #1 is closest to the hay barn, host, horses and portapotty. Campsite #2 and #3 have a picnic table and full drive through circular driveways with open high desert chapparal. All campsites have full unobstructed views of Mt Shasta and surrounding ridges, "whaleback", "haystacks", 'sheep's rock". NO OUTSIDE FIRES of any kind are allowed June 1-Sept 1, 2021. I have water available most of the time from a large 2500 gal water tank and hose. There is a portapotty service on the property by the haybarn. Please pack all trash out. The city of Mount Shasta is approximately 20 miles south. The city of Weed is approximately 7 miles south. Yreka is 20 miles north on I5.

Simple site with fire pit, table, benches, and the pit even came with a grate to put over the fire for for cooking. The sites are pretty far apart so nice level of privacy. Clean portapotty right next to the very beautiful horses. We went in November and it was very cold about 19F at night.
And of course an insanely beautiful view of Mount Shasta. That sunrise was a highlight of our trip!
Patrice's Juniper Spur Ranch at the base of Mt Shasta is incredible. I only spent a night at the ranch, but I was lucky enough to catch an incredible sunset and a night full of stars beneath the mountain. The ranch is private, and Patrice is a lovely host.
I look forward to returning.
We had a great stay. The location is great, we had a stop-over heading to Oregon. The views of Mount Shasta and the westerly sun-set view were superb. We usually do off-road, primitive, camping with our "off-road" trailer, but this location felt remote, quiet and conveniently located just off Highway 395. Would highly recommend.
