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.
