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. 

- From Northwest take 299 east to Weaverville (gas & supply) then through to Douglas City take Highway 3 Southwest toward Hayfork continue to Wildwood Road - Left turn to take Wildwood Road South to Highway 36 the Left to go East of Highway 36 less than 10 miles to Left turn onto Harrison Gulch Road and follow main directions from there. If you see the Harrison Gulch Ranger Station on the right of Highway 36 you have past the turnoff (just West of the Ranger Station) Wildwood is paved: the distance is farther but you can drive faster and is much more user friendly!

This place was a gem! The campgrounds are beautiful, the water was refreshing. Truly, a dream come true to walk on this piece of land. It's worth the trek out. We set-up a small campout for our family and friends, and had a lovely time exploring and dancing.

The wifi at the general store was helpful to have, and Carrie and Cody are the sweetest, most supportive hosts. We were happy to make the connections, learn about the history of the land (they are VERY knowledgeable about the land). We can't wait to come back!

What a magical spot! The road up the mountain was narrow but pretty well maintained... I made it in my tiny Honda Fit no problem. The mineral springs in the creek are wonderful. Be prepared for bees at the campsite though!
The host, Carrie, was so sweet and helpful, and a fountain of knowledge about the amazing biodiversity of the area. I can't wait to go back.

Place was great, will be back for sure. Total peace and quiet, natural mineral springs and creeks all around. Owners are laid back and respectful of their campers.

Our group of 4 had to make some last minute changes to our camping plans due to the wildfires and we were so lucky to snag a spot here! It was definitely off the beaten path, and gave us such a wonderful slice of nature complete with babbling brook next to our site. We had so much privacy and space, which we loved. The flush toilets and potable water made it comfortable, too. Cody was a wonderful host and offered great advice and support while we stayed. It is quite remote so when they say bring what you need make sure you have everything - the camp store has a few items, but it’s better to be certain you have what you like / want for camping. Also make sure to bring a garbage bag / container to pack out what you pack in.

I camped at Trinity Outpost Wilderness Resort with six friends and one dog this past weekend. What a fantastic find! We had a private campsite in a beautiful, green canyon with a creek running alongside.
Trinity has just enough amenities to make camping a bit more comfortable (running water, flush toilet, a general store with ice), but not so many frills that you feel like you aren’t camping. The camp hosts are friendly and knowledgeable, helping us find local hikes and telling us a bit about the history of the area.
Driving out after a three-night stay, I joked to my husband that we would have to give Trinity a terrible review so we’ll have the place to ourselves. But that would be a lie. This is a first-rate experience in a gorgeous part of California.

This was our second time and loved it even better! Our camp was shady so the weather did not bother us at all. Carrie and Peace helped us out and made our stay so pleasant. Would definitely return!

We enjoyed our stay at the Trinity Outpost Wilderness Resort. The name says it all: it is really an outpost in the wilderness! The 12 mile drive from highway 36 took us about an hour and is not recommended for bigger RVs or trailers. But once you are there, you find a beautiful little valley, perfect to relax and regenerate. The hosts are cleaning up and restoring the old resort buildings including bath house.

Most beautiful campsite I’ve ever had. Huge and felt so secluded. Beautiful stream running right next to our site, so we fell Adelphi to the sound of the water. Huge beautiful trees that offer lovely shade during the day. The streams are super accessible even for little kids to have fun splashing around.
