Hike to the 129-foot waterfall at this California state park.
The McArthur-Burney Falls State Park is located in northern California in the Shasta-Trinity National Forest. This waterfall has a flow rate of 100 million gallons a day. It was named after Samuel Burney, a settler who lived in the area in the 1850s, and the McArthur family lived here in the late 1800s. An annual Heritage Day event is held here on the Sunday of Columbus Day weekend. Heritage Day is a family-friendly event where you can see live demonstrations of daily tasks and activities common in the late 19th century.
Day-use areas are open daily from 8 am to sunset. The main tourist season is from April to October, so reserve your campsites ahead of time and consider booking during the week if possible. This state park can accommodate RVs up to 32 feet long and their camping rates are $35 per night. If you're only stopping by to see the falls, there are five miles of hiking trails to explore, so expect to be here for at least a couple of hours.
