A mud slide on Highway 96, between 3 and 4 miles south of Happy Camp has caused intermittent road closures and periods of 1-way traffic restrictions. For current road conditions, contact CalTrans Road Conditions at 800-427-7623 or https://roads.dot.ca.gov/
The campground sits in a shaded area next to the Klamath River at an elevation of 1,400 feet.
The Klamath National Forest encompasses nearly 2 million acres of land straddling the California-Oregon border. The Klamath contains a vast array of mountains, streams and lakes. With elevations ranging from 450 to 8,900 feet, the forest is home to diverse plant life and nearly 400 animal species.
The campground is close to the historic town of Hamburg, once a stomping ground for wealthy fly fisherman and sportsmen, including author Zane Grey. Crumpled structures and rock foundations are all that remain of Hamburg's erstwhile structures, including Johnston's Store and Hotel, Bailey Post Office and Bucket of Blood Saloon.
The class II-III Klamath River can be accessed from the campground, and lends itself to fishing, tubing, whitewater rafting and kayaking. Hiking trails are available in the vicinity.
