Weaverville - Whiskeytown/Lewiston Lakes

Weaverville is located on Highway 299 between Eureka and Redding, California, and borders the Shasta-Trinity National Forest. The Park is blessed with two beautiful lakes, both of which are kept full year-round. This allows visitors to take advantage of fishing from accessible piers, and in the case of Whiskeytown Lake, enables wheelchair-bound guests to enter the lake from a concrete walkway. Accessible campsites are interspersed throughout the area, and accessible trails lead visitors through the region's natural beauty and tranquility.

Weaverville

This historic town is a perfect base for exploring the surrounding countryside, and even though the highway runs through town, it retains an historic and rustic feel. The town itself offers accessible recreation, including the City Park, the Historical Society Museum, and parts of Joss House State Historic Park.

The following pictures offer more flavor of this quaint town, and be sure not to miss an excellent dinner at La Grange! Recommended accessible lodging is available at the friendly Whitmore Inn.

Cooper Gulch Campground lies on the shore of the Lake, and although potable water is not available, accessible restrooms and ample pavement makes travel fairly easy. Campsite 9 is public, but right at lake level.

The Baker Gulch Trail begins from the end of the campground, and is a delightful escape to a lush canyon and babbling brook.

Trinity Lake

Heading north of Weaverville on Highway 3, visitors come to Trinity Lake, one whose lake levels were low when I visited. However, Bushytail Campground provides convenient accessible camping, and the Stoney Swim Trail takes visitors to a quiet swimming hole and picnic area.
