BLM opens Pit River Campground Saturday, April 29

The Bureau of Land Management’s Pit River Campground and river access area in eastern Shasta County opens for the season starting Saturday, April 29, and will be available through early fall.

The campground features seven individual campsites, a group campsite and a day-use area that is ideal for fishing and picnicking. Campsites have fire rings, tables and barbecues. Barbecues and picnic tables are available at the day-use site.

Individuals with walking difficulties can fish from an accessible fishing pier. Kayakers and rafters can take advantage of a specially designed launch site.

There are no fees for the day-use site or launch site. Campsite fees are $8 per night; the group site is $12 nightly. Camping is on a first-come, first served basis, with a limit of 14 days.

Reservations are not accepted. There is an on-site campground host.

The campground is 5 miles west of Fall River Mills, along Highway 299. More information is available by calling the BLM Applegate Field Office at 233-4666.
