Plan Your Visit
Whiskeytown is an all season park with year round recreation. Winter storms leave snow at the higher elevations, but sunny winter days provide opportunities for horseback riding, hiking and mountain biking at the lower elevations. Spring brings excellent opportunities for wildflower viewing and birding.
Visitors can enjoy ranger led tours of historic mines and buildings from the Gold Rush Era. Public transportation is not available to the park or within the park. Main park roads are paved, but back country roads are dirt and high clearance vehicles are suggested. Read the links to plan your visit to the park!
