Camp Britton

General Info

Camp Britton lies on the shores of Lake Britton in Shasta County, about 70 miles east of Redding. At 2,700 feet of elevation, summer days are warm and nights are cool.

The lake and nearby streams offer excellent fishing for a variety of species, including brown and rainbow trout, smallmouth and largemouth bass, black and white crappie, and more. The camp has rowboats for your use, or you can use your own powerboat on the lake for water skiing.

Camp is a short hike away from spectacular Burney Falls, which flows at a steady 100 million gallons per day. Other places of interest, like Lassen Volcanic National Park or the towns of Burney and Fall River Mills, are within driving distance.

This camp is so popular that we hold a lottery every October for the chance to reserve cabins for the following year.

IMPORTANT:  All access to the waterfall and fall’s pool area at McArthur Burney Falls MSP will be closed due to reconstruction of the main trail starting in early April through the entire 2024 season.  Additionally, CalTrans will be preforming a major Highway 89 rehabilitation project during the same period which will significantly add traffic congestion, delays and intermittent traffic closures near the park entrance.

Water Sports Advisory

Several water bodies in the southwestern United States, including California, have become infested with the non-native Quagga mussel in recent years. This species is very invasive and, once introduced, can proliferate rapidly. The spread of these mussels is very damaging to the native ecosystem and ultimately causes significant harm to water collection and distribution systems, including power generation facilities. Fortunately, they are not currently known to exist in any PG&E reservoirs. The biggest risk factor for the spread of this species is bringing watercraft or water-related equipment from infested waters. If you are planning to bring a boat or other water-borne equipment to a PSEA facility, find out more about how you can help prevent the spread of this species by going to the Department of Fish and Game website at https://wildlife.ca.gov/Conservation/Invasives/Quagga-Mussels.
