Looking for a scenic spot for a Fido-friendly group getaway in the great outdoors? Well look no fur-ther than Fawn Group Campground! Located right on the shore in the Stuart Fork Arm of Trinity Lake in California's vast Shasta-Trinity National Forest, the campground sits surrounded by tall pines and mature oak trees, so you and your buddy are guaranteed some shade from the hot summer sun. The facilities at Fawn are pretty primitive -- there’s no shower station or any RV hookups -- but you and your group are just a bone’s throw away from some fantastic recreation options. Fawn Group Campground can get fairly crowded in the high season, so it’s best if you and your group make your reservation early. Each group camp has nineteen individual sites.
Each group campsite has a fairly spacious picnic area, so if all you guys want to do is soak up the atmosphere, fire up the grill, and catch up, you’re all set. If you’d like to get a little more adventurous, don’t worry -- you and your buddy are sure to sniff out something to do! Non-furry family members are free to check out the nearby Stoney Creek Swim area, but unfortunately, your doggo will have to stay on dry land. Hound-dog hikers might enjoy a trip to check out the trails in the nearby Trinity Alps Wilderness, but keep in mind that you’ll need to get a wilderness permit! The nearest town, Weaverville, is on the National Register of Historic Places, and cultured canines might get a kick out of a self-guided walking tour of this old mining settlement.
Fawn Group Campground doesn’t have any wifi, and cellular coverage varies from network to network, so it’s best to check with your provider before you go if you need to be in constant contact. Campfires are permitted, but only in designated rings, and fire regulations can change with the weather. The campground also has access to drinking water, so fill up those bottles before you head out for the day! Remember to bring waste bags for your furry friend, and have a pawesome trip!
