On the McCloud River, within hiking distance of the three waterfalls. Apparently heavily used in the swimming months, but pleasantly uncrowded tonight.
The hike to Lower Falls is less than a mile and very scenic.
Hike to Middle/Upper Falls is a little more than a mile. You can walk the paved road back to make it a loop if you wish.
At the far, downriver corner of the campground, very slower to Lower Falls. The set aside a handful of campsites as non-reservable. This is one, and it's quite nice.
They tried to gas-powered leaf-blow my campsite with me in it this morning. Not cool.
Site 24 is great. It's slightly annoying that the waterfall trail runs between the campsites and the river, so people occasionally walk between me and my excellent view, but that's a small quibble.
