Castle Crags State Park Reviews
Even if you don't come to hike or camp, don't miss a visit to this park. As a state park, there is a fee to enter but it's well worth it. At vista point, you get the chance to experience 3 different m... more »
Being a state park it does cost about $10.00 to enter the grounds and we really couldn't find much to do except drive up to the view point. We aren't hikers so we weren't interested in any long trails... more »
Fantastic area to get a rest rom the freeway. The area from Redding to the Oregon border is beautiful. Don't just drive through wishing you had time to stop and relax. Plan for it. Lots of hiking trai... more »
I loved it! EXCEPT the fee! I feel that the fee is excessive, that said, this is one of those SPECTACULAR places that really stand out in memory, for awesome beauty, it is hard to beat. You be the judge! for a visitor who has never been, the fee is of no consequence, (as a local who would like to hike or picnic often, there lies the rub).
My family and I go camping here every year. It's nice and relaxing except for the train that likes to blow its' horn late at night and early in the morning. Other than that it's a nice place. The rangers are friendly and very helpful.
Hiked the nearly 8 mile round trip from the lower parking lot to castle dome. Trails are well marked. It's an uphill hike all the way so be prepared. Beautiful scenery and amazing views.
Awesome place with absolutely wonderful views and hiking trail! The water from the river is so fresh! Great place to visit with wonderful, hospitable, and knowledgeable Rangers.
Really unique rock formations and great rock climbing. Does take about a three mile hike to get up to the nice rock climbing areas, but it is worth it.
