The Maple Creek Ranch and Tree Farm has been family owned and operated since 1934. The patriarch of the family, whose family had moved here from Sweden, had a great love of the forest and trains. The property was one of the first certified tree farms in California with the goal of nurturing a healthy forest. In the 1960鈥檚, a mile of railroad tracks was laid and the whistle of a small, steam engine train could be heard throughout the community. Local residents and kids were treated to free train rides and special events for many years.There is a natural spring with a small creek that supplies the ponds with fresh water year around. There is also a small canyon on the property with a larger stream called Mud Creek.

Cozy Log Cabin Near Lassen Park

1 site 路 Lodging3 acres 路 Shingletown, CA
Are you ready to unplug from the world and recharge in nature? This newly built two bedroom, two bath log cabin will help you do just that. You鈥檒l reconnect with love ones since the cabin has NO WIFI but does have a wood burning stove and miles of trails to walk on just outside of the front door. The cabin is conveniently located just minutes from the north entrance of Lassen National Park. For entertainment, I have a TV (no cable)/DVD player with a selection of movies, board games, and reading material including a few books and magazines. There is timber land at the back of the property with plenty of trails to walk or ride a mountain bike (if you bring one). Lassen National Park is a short drive away. Also nearby is lake McCumber. I have a wood burning stove inside that you can use for a fire. Absolutely NO FIRES outside. There is a fire ban in effect, thank you for your cooperation and understanding. I have a propane BBQ outside that you can use, along with a picnic bench and other outside seating. I will provide a selection of tea, hot coco, coffee and oatmeal to get your day started. Be sure to bring food with you since the nearest grocery story is about 9 miles away. I will provide a basket of firewood to use during your stay, but it's a good idea to bring extra since it will go fast. Because you're in the forest, there is limited cell reception so please plan accordingly. I've found that Verizon has some signal while AT&T has none. Since it's meant to get away from it all, not having cell service might be a good thing. :) The master bedroom is on the entire loft floor so there isn't a lock or door that separates the main area downstairs. Just so you're aware. There is a door and lock on the guest bedroom downstairs. All you'll need to bring are your personal items, food for your stay, and extra firewood! Once booked, I will send more helpful tips and information for your stay a week prior to your check in date. Dogs - I allow dogs because I believe they are part of the family, but please notify me if you intend to bring your dog prior to your stay. If there is high wind in the forecast, the electric company, PG&E may turn the power off for safety reasons. They usually notify me a day in advance and I will let you know right away, but I wanted you to know that it might be a possibility during your stay. For Winter Guests: A 4 wheel drive vehicle or car with chains is HIGHLY recommended to travel to the cabin. The main road is paved but there will be snow/ice in the area. The driveway is a slight uphill and is not paved. Please be prepared for snow. ***Approved Shasta County Short Term Rental Permit #STR 20-0013***

The best camping near Bumpass Hell guide



The peculiarly named Bumpass Hell is the largest hydrothermal area in the entire Lassen Volcanic National Park. Named after the unfortunate Kendall Bumpass who fell through the crust into a scalding hot mudpot, it is easy to see why this region was named after his harrowing experience. As you walk through the surreal and hellish landscape you may encounter hot springs, boiling mudpots, and fumaroles, all of which are clearly marked to avoid past mistakes. A must-see if you are in the Lassen National Forest area, this geothermal phenomenon is truly otherwordly.

When to go

The best time to visit Bumpass Hell is from June through October when the trail is free from snow. Early mornings or late afternoons on weekdays are ideal to avoid crowds. Winter and early summer can see the trail closed due to snow and ice hazards, so always check current conditions before planning your trip.

Know before you go

  • Check the trail status before your visit as Bumpass Hell Trail may be closed due to snow until as late as July.
  • Wear sturdy footwear and consider trekking poles for the uneven terrain and high elevation.
  • Carry plenty of water and stay hydrated, as shade is limited and the trail can be strenuous.
  • Stay on established trails and boardwalks to avoid dangerous hydrothermal areas.
  • Remember, pets are not allowed on the trail, ensuring the safety of both wildlife and your furry friends.
