Camp Pit River is located in the Mt. Shasta region at an elevation of 2,000 feet, where the days are warm and nights are cool. The area is well known for superior hunting, and the spring-fed waters of the Pit River provide excellent
fishing conditions consistent with cold water temperatures. Iron Canyon Reservoir is located within 20 minutes from camp where a public boat ramp is available. Throughout the area, photographer buffs can capture the brilliance of spring
wildflowers or the vivid colors of fall, and hikers can enjoy the natural beauty
and wildlife along wooded trails.
The camp is somewhat isolated, so provisions for several days should be taken along. There is a general store with limited grocery supplies in Big Bend. The nearest town is Burney which is located about 35 miles from camp.
