Camping At Whiskeytown

"I have felt a still sublimity, looking deep into the coals of my campfire, and seeing far beyond them." - Everett Ruess

Sitting by a campfire, enjoying its warmth and comraderie on a cold winter evening. Playing cards or a boardgame at the picnic table with loved ones. Resting in your tent, excitedly knowing that you get to go fishing on Whiskeytown Lake early tomorrow morning. For whatever reason you like to camp, Whiskeytown has lots of camping options for you! Check the table below for details. As a reminder, please be respectful of all campers by keeping your voices down and playing music only at low volume. Happy Trails, and Happy Camping!
