Boise Creek Campground
Boise Creek Campground is along Highway 299, two miles west of the town of Willow Creek in the Six Rivers National Forest. Willow Creek, with a population of about 1,700, sits along the Trinity River. The town is known as the Bigfoot Capital of the World and holds an annual Bigfoot Daze festival in September.
Visitors to Boise Creek Campground find the best river access for swimming and rafting to the north at Tish Tang Campground in the Hoopa Valley Tribal Reservation. Day use there is $6 per vehicle. Fishing in the Trinity River is good for salmon in the fall and steelhead in the winter. A ½-mile trail from Boise Creek Campground leads to the creek and a swimming hole.
Boise Creek Campground features 17 campsites in a single loop among large Pacific madrone, Douglas-fir, and California bay trees. Most campsites can accommodate RVs, trailers, and tents. Three sites are designated for tents only.
