The trail was easy. It was a Sunday afternoon in December. We had the whole park to ourselves. There was absolutely no one there. Absolutely beautiful and stunning.

Every chance we get we come here. We've yet to camp but even a day trip is worth it. This is a beautiful hike, not so dog friendly on the paved trail. The kids love to jump on the rocks and we love watching them.

We camp here every year. Beautiful trails. The lake at times can have a lot of algae depending on the rain fall that year. the little store is a nice treat with the heat to get some ice cream.

We wanted to camp here, but they only take cash in the off-season so we got a hotel in town. Went to the falls early the next morning. Walking down to the falls, you don’t expect it to open up to such a magnificent scene!

We appreciate your terrific review. Yes you can fish here - some catch and release and elsewhere catch and keep. Fishing regulations are available at the ranger station and kiosk. We especially appreciate that lake reflection as well, especially in this quieter season! Come back...More

Beautiful, so beautiful! Go and take the hike around the Falls. It is amazing and soothes the soul! Unless you walk in, it's a $10 day fee. Worth it!

We are delighted you had a soothing and inspiring walk. This is a spectacular time of year to visit, in part because it is more quiet. Thanks for your review! McArthur Burney Falls Interpretive Association

As a resident of the area, Burney Falls is a place I take anyone who comes to visit. It is absolutely beautiful and one of my favorite places in Northern California. An easy 5-10 minute walk down a winding, paved path (with a fair bit...More

The beauty of traveling off-season, mid-week is you have the whole park to yourself. The colors you witness during the fall season are spectacular. I completed the Falls Loop trail, a simple trail which takes you over two bridges. I got here at 7:00 when...More

Thank you for a lovely review. Fall and spring are both special times in the park, and this year's fall colors have been especially vibrant. Come back soon. McArthur Burney Falls Interpretive Association

Showers are coin operated but they are hot! YAY. The falls are beautiful. This campground really has it all. The sites are very nice and spaced out well. You don't have too much hwy noise. You are close to the lake.

Make sure you get a good map or call the Park for directions, beause google doesnt take you to the main entrance.Interesting though, the park is aware of that problem, so why dont they fix it. Would save a lot of stress.
