Going to destinations in the deep forests of northern California before the wildfire begins used to be a key to success, but now that climate change has gone full swing the wildfire season is now year round. Checking the wildfire maps is now necessary before setting sail and monitoring the wildfire situation while onsite is necessary for safety's sake. Obeying the current Smokey The Bear regulations is also important to do, so the lives of others are not endangered. This forewarning is now necessary for planning trips throughout the west and there are also many closures from recent wildfires to be aware of. Some of the old time favorite campgrounds of the past have been burnt to the ground, so it is best to do some research ahead of time to avoid a disappointment upon arrival.
The Six Rivers National Forest definitely is a region that beckons to be experienced at least once in a lifetime and there are many good campgrounds to choose from for an extended stay. Some of the most picturesque spots are located along the Klamath River and most are on the high ground, because the river gorge slopes are very steep in this mountainous terrain. The nature of the campsite locations lends to some astonishingly beautiful views, while adventures on the river await a short distance down below.
One notable overnighter option for Six Rivers adventures is the E-Ne-Nuck Campground, which is a very cozy nook that overlooks the Klamath River. This section of the river is usually fairly deep even during late summer and it is a popular with both kayakers and fly fishermen. Because this campground is in the high elevations, the summer season opening date is mid June, but the wait is well worth it. Each campsite is nestled under tall pines that lend to lazing the day away in a hammock. The campsites are equipped with picnic tables, fire rings and old fashioned cast iron stoves, which help with fire prevention. Basic facilities are located onsite, while drinking water can be found nearby. Best of all, there are well worn trails that head down to the Klamath River, which is all the invitation that an angler needs!

*This website will be going through renovations soon. Separate destination articles will be combined after the videos replace the outdated photo gallery system. As many readers know, most of the writing was done on the fly while camping, so many articles read like a rough draft. The articles will be cleaned up and edited. Many of the old photos were straight out of the camera due camping limitations as well, so you will finally see full living color images, just like in the new videos. Another goal is to make navigating the index pages easier and condensing the articles will help. This website will continue into the future and your patience is greatly appreciated!
