Panther Meadows Campground
Panther Meadows Campground rests on the slopes of Mt. Shasta, 14 miles east of the town of Mount Shasta. At 7,420 feet, it is the highest campground on the mountain. Visitors to the campground enjoy wonderful vistas of the surrounding area from the summit of nearby 7,900-foot Gray Butte. Lassen Peak, Castle Crags, and the Sacramento River are visible on clear days. Another trail leads up the side of Mt. Shasta to over 9,000 feet.
Panther Meadows Campground has 10 walk-in, tent-only campsites. Trailers are not allowed at the campground. There is no drinking water at the campground, although those with quality wilderness filters can take advantage of creek water. Garbage must be packed out. The campground has a 3 day limit.
