Camp Freedom

3 sites · RVs, Tents3 acres · Alturas, CA
Learn more about this land: TAKE NOTE: I have turned off the pump house for the winter. If you plan on camping there, you will need to bring your own water and be prepared for freezing temperatures. The water will be turned back on next spring around March. Thank you! The recreation opportunities in the Alturas CA area are endless, fishing, hiking biking, hunting, boating and OHV. The camping site has nearly 3 acres with a view of the town of Alturas and is a great place to kick back and enjoy the atmosphere of fresh air and juniper trees. There are flat usable campsites around the property and one portion of the property is fenced for horses (bring your own water trough). The property is approximately 3 minutes from downtown Alturas with restaurants and stores. The sleepy town is a perfect place to hang out and relax at the big park in town behind the VFW Hall on Main Street, have refreshments at the two bars in town or try your luck at the Desert Rose Casino. The Wildlife Refuge has a self driving tour where you can see all kinds of birds and wildlife. Take a drive outside town to the "Ranches" to see deer, antelope, eagles and various waterfowl! Alturas is a high desert area with wonderful views of the Warner Mountains and has an enchanting feel to it. Temperatures in the summer rarely get over 100 degrees, mostly low 90's, and in the fall the cool nights make for great sleeping. Pop over Cedar Pass to Cedarville which is about 20 minutes away to check out the newly designated "Dark Sky" area. Come up and hang out in this very cool and special place, you will not want to leave!!  The town of Alturas is also in the coveted X hunting zones, X3a, X3b and X2, for those of you who like to hunt. Two sites have full hook ups and the small trailer site on the above pad (see trailer picture) has electric only.  During the winter, the pump house is turned off and drained due to freezing temperatures and the risk of blowing a pipe, so campers must bring their own water during November through March.  Please ask if there are changes in these dates for the water hook ups.

Back of Beyond

2 sites · Lodging20 acres · Lakeview, OR
Welcome to Back of Beyond. We are the only year-round residents living off of Camas Prairie in the North Warner Mountains, perched at 5,700' elevation. We have owned this beautiful piece of ground since 1996. It has ponderosa and aspen forests with a few white firs, junipers, and willows along the seasonal creek. Wild flowers are all over these mountains from Spring through September. The Squirrelville cabin was built in the early 1920s by a Lake County judge. The Whitetail cabin was built just after WW2 and is fully plumbed w/ hot water and a redwood deck, perfect for gazing at the stars. We are a member of Dark Skies Oregon, there is no light pollution, and on a clear night you can see the Milky Way. Privacy and solitude are on tap here: We are up against the Fremont National Forest, a massive 2.4 million acre forest offering multiple hiking and walking trails & winter sports. Speaking of winter sports, Warner Canyon Ski Area and Camas Sno Park are only a 5 minute drive away. The road running along our property is part of the 50+ miles of trail through the North Warner Mountain range, and into California. Love biking? It is also part of the new Timber Mountain Bike trail, as well as the Oregon Natural Desert Association alternative route to Lakeview. If you're looking to take home some of Oregon’s finest sunstones, South Central and Southeastern Oregon are the only areas in the world where the gem-graded sunstones with copper inclusions are found. Better yet, the Sunstone Public Collection Area is only an hour and 45 minutes away from camp. We are a mere 10 miles from the wide open spaces of the Great Basin, and a short drive to Hart Mt. Antelope Refuge. You get 2 ecosystems for the price of one! Hart Mountain Hot Springs and Petroglyph Lake are all an easy day trip away. Discover the largest concentration of Native petroglyphs in the entire state of Oregon, on and around Hart Mountain. Native Americans have lived in this area for over 10,000 years. Fishing enthusiasts will be happy to hear that native Red Band trout are in many water ways close by. Fly-fishing on Deep Creek and Vee Lake, or lure fishing for crappie and bass in the Warner Lakes, as well as Drew's and Cottonwood Reservoirs, Dog Lake, and Goose Lake. Seasonal wild flowers and bird watching are all very close at hand. Bird watch at the foot of Hart Mountain in the Warner Valley, where a series of lakes and wetlands form part of the Western Flyway for migrating birds. There are trails and blinds for bird watchers. Our water is pure Artesian spring water that we do not need to touch w/ chemicals.

Sunrise Hill

1 site · RV, Tent2 acres · Daphnedale Park, CA
This property is in the Modoc Recreational Estates subdivision in Modoc County. It is about 50 miles south of the California/Oregon border and 30 miles west of the California/Nevada border. It is adjacent to the Modoc National Forest which contains hundreds of miles of trails for exploration and enjoyment. If you enjoy outdoor recreation, Modoc County is a giant playground. Hiking, mountain biking, or horseback riding on mountain trails are spectacular. Opportunities are abundant for those who like to hunt or fish. There are 255 miles of trout streams and many lakes/reservoirs in the area. A 6,000 acre National Wildlife Refuge is just a few miles to the east. For those that choose to watch and enjoy the scenery, on any given day, you may see mustangs, mule deer, antelope, elk, geese, duck, grouse, quail and bald eagles. This lot is located in Modoc Recreational Estates. Roads from Alturas are good....you are only about 4 miles from town! The lot is primarily wooded with native grasses, rock outcroppings and cleared areas....a nice mixture of everything that makes this area special. What sets this lot apart from the others? VIEWS!!! Breathtaking views of the surrounding areas. Please make sure to view the pictures....they really don't do it justice, but they may provide you with a feel for the property. The lot slopes gently uphill from the road....maybe 70 feet from the road to the top of a small ridgeline that flattens out and provides an ideal campsite with spectacular views of the valley and mountains to the south, east and west.
