Private Tent Camping: under the stars. Community areas, swimming holes, creek running through ALL campsites, shared lodge & rustic accommodations. @ResortTrinity
Fall asleep stargazing under a dark sky, surrounded by trees, water and wildlife. Wake up to birds chirping then visit the Cold mineral springs bubbling out of the mountainside, attracting many types of wildlife along with people seeking out the healing properties of the sulfur scented spring water.
Sacred healing mineral spring "Deadshot" named by the native peoples for its ability to cure all ailments with 'one shot'. Nipisum or 'health water' was later bottled by the California Medicinal Springs Co. after the land was homesteaded in 1886. This historic retreat rests at the foot of lower Chanchelulla 'black rock' Mountain.
Bordering a Wilderness Area this land is pristine and wild inhabited by many animals and incredible bio-diversity such as Pileated Woodpeckers, Golden Eagle, Bald Eagle, Blackhawk, Goshawk, Great Horned Owl, Flying Squirrel, Pacific King Snake, Salamanders and Protected Spawning Rainbow Trout.
100+ acres with private hiking trails along the stream for easy trekking, and summit trails (climbing up to almost 6,000 ft.) to the peak.
Our aim is to restore the land from the last 100 years of habitation using innovation to renovate the campground and baths for the next 100 years. We hope to revitalize the community of Trinity County, as well as educate and generate support for WILDERNESS, public lands and the agencies that manage them.
The mineral springs and trails are open to the public during the daytime. Trinity Outpost is also a WWOOF Host Farm building a organic farmstead we have many culture exchange volunteers helping us bring life back to this historic land building an organic farm and sustainable community. The campground is your to book but is also surrounded by National Forest Land which belongs to everyone. We expect zero exceptions to the leave no trace standards we have put forward for our private land share.
DO NOT EVER FEED ANY WILD ANIMALS, ANYTHING, EVER.
(Compost bin provided at the lodge please use with care.)
Bears are wild which means many have never seen a person and
will avoid you as long as it is not a mama with cubs, keep your area tidy with food stored away from animals or where wind cannot blow it into the creek.
Be aware of Rattle Snakes- They do not want to encounter you anymore than you do them. If you see one simple back away slowly and avoid it until it vacates the area.
Always look before you step and bring a flashlight to the bathroom at night and do not wear headphones hiking so you can hear the warning rattle!
Mountain lions - are dangerous. They do live in this area. Here are the California Department of Fish and Game’s suggestions based on behavior analysis of attacks by mountain lions. Do not hike alone. Make plenty of noise to reduce your chances of surprising a lion. Go in groups, with adults supervising children. Take a sturdy walking stick: you can use it to ward off a lion. Keep children close to you. Observations of captured lions reveal that they seem especially drawn to children. Keep children within your sight at all times.
- Stop! Do not run from a lion. Back away from it slowly, but only if you can do so safely, as running may stimulate a lion's instinct to chase and attack. Face the lion and stand upright. Make eye contact. If you have small children with you, pick them up so they won't panic and run. Although it may seem awkward, pick them up without bending over or turning away from the lion.
- Do not bend or crouch over. Do all you can to appear larger. A person squatting or bending over looks a lot like a four-legged prey animal. Raise your arms. Open your jacket, if you're wearing one. Throw stones, branches, or whatever you can grab without crouching down or turning your back. Wave your arms slowly and speak firmly in a large voice. Never approach a lion, especially one that is feeding or with kittens. Most mountain lions will try to avoid confrontation. Give them a way to escape. Fight back if attacked. Try to stay on your feet if a lion attacks you. Lions have been driven off by prey that fights back. Some hikers have fought back successfully with sticks, caps, jackets, garden tools, and their bare hands.
