  • The park is within the Cascade Range and Modoc Plateau natural region, with 910 acres of forest and 5 miles of streamside and lake shoreline, including a portion of Lake Britton.

    The park’s centerpiece is the 129-foot Burney Falls, which is not the highest or largest waterfall in the state, but possibly the most beautiful. Additional water comes from springs, joining to create a mist-filled basin. Burney Creek originates from the park’s underground springs and flows to Lake Britton, getting larger along the way to the majestic falls.

    Cabins (24 total sites)

    In 2007, 24 new cabins were added to the campground. Now, you can enjoy Burney Falls in the comfort of an insulated cabin. Cabins have bunks and a roomy, covered porch, a locking front door, and room outside for a tent and a campfire. Cabins have propane heat (included in the nightly rate), but no electricity or plumbing. Bathrooms and showers are in a nearby building.
