Private Tent Camping: under the stars. Park at your campsite! Community areas, swimming holes, creek running through ALL campsites, shared lodge & rustic accommodations. No fee for children or dogs~ Follow for update tweets @ResortTrinity Trinity Outpost Wilderness is a private campground that is committed to the land-sharing ethos of Hipcamp preserving ecology and defending habitat for wildlife and pollinators. The mineral springs and trails are open to the public during the daytime. We also host with WWOOF, we have many cultural exchange volunteers helping us bring life back to this historic land building an organic farm and sustainable inclusive 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. Fall asleep stargazing under a dark sky, surrounded by trees, water and wildlife. Wake up to birds chirping then a 10 min hike to 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. With your help we hope to revitalize the community of Trinity County, as well as educate and generate support for WILDERNESS, public forest lands and the agencies that manage them.

Wonderful place to unwind
Beautiful place to unwind. We were a bit spoiled because we went on a weekday so we had the whole property to ourselves. Very peaceful.

Restorative nature
I loved the sight. So peaceful. Water, trees and so green. It rained and snowed, so beautiful. The host was very sweet, told me about the area. Me and my dog were the only guests, had it all to ourselves. Very relaxing. Go by hip camp directions, easy to get lost, no service up there for miles but the campsite does have wifi connection. I will definitely come back. Thank you Cari and the Mr.

I had never used Hipcamp before, but I was struggling to find an open campsite that was dog-friendly and accepted reservations for our early October (read: out of season) camping road trip. Trinity Outpost exceeded all of my expectations. Our host was friendly and informative upon arrival. We were the first of three groups to arrive that weekend, and we were suggested towards a lovely, private site that gave the dog ample room to meander leash-free - which made our ball dog happy. The mineral springs were a short hike from our campsite, and on the way we saw fresh evidence of wild bear. I was sad to not have seen the bear myself; my partner not so sad. Our large site was a footbridge across the creek to the flushing toilets & camp sink utilizing fresh mountain spring water. Another footbridge away was a couple of mountain spring swimming holes. A bit warmer than an ice bath, the dip was invigorating. It was a privilege to enjoy the crystal water while the sun dripped through the trees. Our only concern during the stay was overstepping our bounds while attempting follow the road to a trailhead our host mentioned - maybe we misunderstood our directions. A dog off in the distance seemed to have sensed us & began howling. Our dog interpreted the communication as a big "step off" and immediately put her tail between her legs - something we've never seen her do. We heeded the warning. I look forward to returning in a few years as the wilderness resort grows.

Rugged and gorgeous
We had a truly magical time. Spent time in the mineral spring and hiked all around the grounds. The unpolluted view of the stars and the galaxies is gorgeous, you can literally see every single star and planet. Wildlife everywhere! Wild plums, apples, and blackberries were among the few lovely things to enjoy. Also what are the odds that we’d have the entire place to ourselves. Completely appreciated the overall ruggedness and cannot wait to come back! I will say that you’ll want some type of suv or 4x4 or 4 wheel drive vehicle as the drive in is not for the faint of heart. So many bumps, ruts, washed out areas, and you’re essentially driving on the edge of a cliff.

magic waters
A very remote and special place with wonderful amenities. There is a real magic here and I can tell there’s even more projects about to happen with the property. A truly unique and calming place. I camped by myself for two nights and felt utterly at peace listening to the creek and bathing in the springs.
