Marissa's place is located a few miles from Whiskeytown Lake, with a beautiful view of sunrise, sunset and the stars at night. Marissa was in great communication leading up to the trip. The location itself is old-school Hipcamp, no frills, a basic place to stop over while traveling. Please note, we let her know beforehand we had dogs and a kid in tow, and found items scattered throughout the property that could have caused some serious injuries (a hunting arrow on the ground and barbed wire laying in a spot on the way to the creek). The beach is a bank of the creek, which might be a spot to tent camp. We did find ticks on humans and dogs, so bug spray/long pants and shirts are probably a good idea if walking to the creek. Overall, a pretty good stay in a gorgeous area!
