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

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.

We had a huge campground. Big enough for us to set up 3 large tents and 1 small one, plus plenty of room to park 2 cars. We had a wonderful time, very relaxing. Because of the drought, there wasn't much water. Just enough running water in the creek to get wet and cool off and that was about it. The longest part of the trip was the last 19 miles up to the campground after you turn off the main road. It took us 45 minutes to an hour to travel those 19 miles. I think it's the only way in and the only way out. Lots of good hiking trails to explore. The sun is hot, and the water is cold. The host are great, and they have plenty of good drinking water. Just bring a jug to fill up. There are also flush toilets.

My sister got a flat tire leaving the campsite. She was about 4 1/2 miles down the 19-mile dirt and rocky road when it happened and our host Cody, came to her rescue. We were so grateful. He did all the work, jacked her car up, changed her flat tire, and would not take any money for the work he'd done. I'm so glad I got the chance to meet him. He is really a good, nice, down to earth person. People like him are hard to find now a days.

If you like to be in the middle of the forest out in the wilderness with no one around for miles and miles, then this is the place to go. We didn't see any bears at all, only dear. We had a great time and enjoyed it very much.

Very remote, spacious, and quiet. The property is 45 minutes from the main road, so we did not go anywhere but there was plenty to see/do on the property. There is a hike, bathhouse, mineral spring, etc. north of the property. Be prepared for mosquitos in the summer evenings and books/games to keep you entertained. Camp host was friendly and shared interesting history of the property.

Beautiful well spaced out sites very close to a gorgeous cool creek, even in the heat of summer! Very much off the beaten path but is fun to see a little slice of California that hasn’t been seen and developed. Nice bathrooms, easy access to water, bbq grills provided. Highly recommend for the more adventurous campers.

Camping here was great! So quiet and beautiful. The hosts were super nice and we would definitely go back. The dirt road drive there in my Subaru Impreza was doable, just had to slow down and navigate a few spots but we had no problems.

I brought my dog up to Trinity Outpost over the July 4th weekend so that she wouldn't be traumatized by the insane fireworks at home. It was PERFECT!! Even tho' the campground was "full" it didn't feel like it AT ALL. Campsites are huge! Creek bubbling behind the campsites made for a lullabye like no other. Night skies crammed with stars! Hosts were friendly and super-helpful!

Mosquitoes were pesky, so bring your anti-skeeter elixers. There's about 13 miles of dirt roads to get there, so take that into consideration.

Huge campsite with creek running behind. 🏕💜🏕I finished this piece the day before the trip and couldn’t bear leaving it behind. Lol. Turned out great because there were so many beautiful settings for pics. Look below to see the brand new table they made in their wood shop! So cool! Here’s where you meet the hosts, grab some wifi, snacks, even some ice. It was so fun playing in the water! The creek runs throughout the property, and is quite the lullabye as you fall asleep under the stars.
