Our Third Annual Northern California Gathering will be held at McArthur-Burney Falls State Park, September 16-18. Most of the comments favored this site. Here is a sample:

--I prefer Burney Falls it’s a campground, in the woods with trees, shade, walks to take, etc. The fairgrounds look good and sounds good but it’s just another RV park plus no shade trees or the fragrance from them.

-- Just looking at cost the fairgrounds would seem to be the choice. However I think we all would prefer to be in the tall pines away from the city.

-- We favor meeting at Burney Falls again this year. We LOVED the campground last year - not to mention the falls, trails, and lake!

-- We vote for the State Park. We go for the ambiance!

Burney Falls it is! McArthur/Burney Falls is located about 50 miles east of Redding, CA on highway 299. Past the town of Burney Highway 299 intersects 89, then it’s 5 miles north on 89.

Sites are $30/night ($2 discount for seniors). Newer restrooms and showers are available. No reservations can be made. (The reservation system ends the weekend before we get there.) As we found out last year the crowd thins out considerably after Labor Day and plenty of sites are available. There is limited electricity (20 amps) available in 3 sites for those with special needs.

If you are planning to attend please let us know through this forum or a PM either to me or Alan Weinel. An updated attendance list can be found over on Post #1 of the Casita Forum: Casita Travel Trailer Forum. Go to Rallies and Campouts (upcoming); other rallies; Northern California

BURNEY FALLS UPDATE


Hi Everyone,
As you probably know by now the votes have been tallied and the final choice for
the location of this fall's gathering is Burney Falls! We'll be gathering this
year from Friday, September 16th through Sunday, September 18th. Earl Arrants,
Alan and I will organize and head up the events again this year. We've made a
few changes. We've changed last year's Friday afternoon game time to "organized
down time" and have taken into consideration those who may prefer to hike,
teach/learn a new skill, or just talk. We'll all gather at a designated
campsite at the designated time and the game players can play games, the hikers
can hike, the talkers can talk, and the teachers/students can do their thing.
If you have a skill you would like to share with others or a class you would
like to teach, please let us know as soon as possible, so we can publicize your
class and notify those interested of materials they may need to bring or fees
for the class, etc.

Our Friday night gathering will include S'mores and Trivia. This year's trivia
will be general trivia rather than trivia specific to camping and egg trailers,
so you might want to study your encyclopedias or watch some Jeopardy in the
weeks leading up to the gathering.

Saturday, we'll have our ladder golf tournament, trailer tour, group picture,
and, of course, our potluck, awards ceremony , door prizes, and other neat
stuff. We will schedule the potluck a little earlier than last year - by the
time we were done, evening was closing in!

Sunday morning we will gather for brunch at 9:00 am, and then those who are
departing can break camp before heading back home or to where ever the road may
take us.

Hope to see you on the weekend of the 16th!

Happy trails,
Michele Weinel

Noob questions

1. I was looking at the Burney Falls reservation website and all of the sites say walk on only. So is it correct that everyone is coming in First Come First Served?

2. Most of the the sites shown as available say Equipment Length 32'. Does that refer to truck and trailer?

3. Finally, they say Double driveway, so if the overall rig is larger than 32', there is room to back in, disconnect and park next to the trailer?

Hi Dan,
Michele here. In answer to question #1. Yes. No reservations are taken or needed. After Labor Day weekend the park really empties out. At last year's gathering less than half of the park's sites were occupied.

#2 and #3. No problem for parking. According to the park's website "campsites are designed to accomodate a maximum of three vehicles." Please check out the website at www.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=455 click on brochures on the left side of the screen and then click on campground map when the next screen comes up. This page should answer any questions you have. Or if you have a question that is not addressed you can always call the park at 530-335-2777.

Hope this info is helpful and hope to see you in September!

Hi Gang!

Only 28 more days until our Northern California - Burney Falls Gathering! See our list of attendance in Post #1 over on Casita Forum - Upcoming Rallies - other rallies - Northern California - Burney Falls.

There is a neat video of the falls at this address: Waterfall at Burney Falls State Park, California - YouTube

Last year the park was overhauling the trail down to the falls. This year the park website says the trail is finished and ready to use.

Have you signed up yet? Of course, reservations are not needed - so come on up!

- - Earl

Hello All-

I have not been on the forum in long, long time but we are still alive and kicking. Just wanted to post that Bob & Judy Webb are planning on attending the Burney Falls gathering. Sadly Berry & Ellen Buzzard will not be able to attend this year but maybe next year. We wish everyone safe travels and tons of fun for this gathering.

Ellen B.

I have no egg yet, but might be able to make it up for at least part of the weekend to meet some folks and see some eggs. Tent campers welcome to play too?

How many trailers are expected at this point? It's a long drive, but if it's going to have a wide variety of 13's to look at it would be worth the drive I think. I've only seen two of these beasts up close.

Is anyone going who's selling a 13'er??!!
