High Bridge Campground

High Bridge Campground is only 6 miles northwest of Lake Almanor on Warner Valley Road. The 12 campsites are spaced among mature trees at the confluence of Warner Creek and the North Fork of the Feather River. Campers here often take advantage of good fishing in the river. An interesting day trip is the drive up into the Warner Valley, a portion Lassen Volcanic National Park. The road dead-ends at Drakesbad Guest Ranch and does not continue on into the rest of the park. Lake Almanor, with fishing, boating, and other attractions, is only a ten minute drive away.

A small trailer or RV could fit in some of the campsites. All are first-come, first-served.
