What To Bring
If you plan to camp out, be sure to bring a tent, a sleeping bag and air mattress or pad in addition to your usual toilet articles. Nights are cool at a 4,800-foot elevation. Sturdy footwear is also important as walks at the camp are not paved. For those planning to use Buckner Lodge, bring towels, sleeping bag and/or sheets, as the camp does not supply these items. Do not forget cameras, flashlights, binoculars, bird books, flower books and any other resources to help you appreciate the camp's special gifts. Above all, bring a sense of excitement and an open heart and mind!

Access during the winter

The access road from Mt. Shasta City is approximately 8 miles over a paved road and a 1/4-mile unpaved entrance road. When snow packed (winter months) the camp can be reached by snowshoes or cross-country skis.
