Rim Camp is located right between Lake Britton to the north and the majestic Burney Falls. Camping so close to a waterfall (that was considered by President Roosevelt to be the 8th wonder of the world!) is pretty unbeatable, and having the versatility of aquatic activity options provided by Lake Britton makes camping at McArthur an ideal destination for both the active vacationer and the wild-nature-loving explorer.

Expensive camping but very handy for short trips. Nice trails surround the area.
