We stayed here for 5 nights in a group spot with friends. It is dry camping, although they do have spigots, for water and pit toilets around the campground. There is a creek that we fished in and had a good time. You are in a forest, and there is trees, so if you're looking to get a signal for Dish or Direct TV.....good luck!! Anyway, I would most definitely stay here again as you are kind of centralized to the Volcanoes, Burney Falls, the volcanic caves, and Lake Britian. We camped at Hat Creek Campground (USFS) in a Motorhome.

This is a nice Forest Service campground spread out along Hat Creek. The sites are large and can accommodate small to medium size rigs. There is at least one restroom with flush toilets and there are pit toilets as well. Water is available in the campground but not at individual sites. There is no dump station. We liked this campground because it was clean, quiet and picturesque. There is a small general store at Old Station, one mile away, and I believe there is also a cafe and gas station there too. The trail head for the Spatter Cones Nature Trail is across the road from the campground. We'd stay here again. We camped at Hat Creek Campground (USFS) in a Travel Trailer.

The Spatter Cones Nature Trail is just across the road and if you'd like to explore a lava tube, subway Caves is only a mile away.

I stayed here one night. No amenities. Good for fishing Hat Creek as it flows through the campground. Only has pit toilets and a water faucet. A campground Host was on site and was helpful with local sites to see. Close to Hwy-44 so some noise. If you like to rough it, this is your spot. We camped at Hat Creek Campground (USFS) in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is here for one reason, Hat Creek fishing. It is a typical forest service campground, that means great location but no amenities. Just my cup of tea!!! We stay here several times a year to fish, explore and enjoy nature. Bring your own stuff, LIMITED restaurants, fuel and services, but GREAT nature. We camped at Hat Creek Campground (USFS) in a Travel Trailer.

There is shade spots but very few. This is part of the National Forest Recreation area. Has a nice creek. Also has a campground host. It was ok for an over nite stop but we won't be back. We camped at Hat Creek Campground (USFS) in a Motorhome.
