A stay at the Indian Scotty Group Site is a fun (and inexpensive!) way to enjoy the Klamath National Forest with up to 50 friends or family members. The daily rate is $50, so with the maximum number of occupants, the cost factors out to be just $1 per person! This may be a primitive campground, but the amenities are anything but! The facility offers convenient parking, accessible vault toilets, drinking water, grills, garbage collection services, picnic tables, and pay phones.
The grounds are fantastic for youngsters, with plenty of activities to keep them busy during their stays like hiking trails, a playground, and access to the Scott River (which is a big asset during the dog days of summer)! Tent sites are tucked among the cedar, Douglas fir, and Ponderosa pines, so no matter how hot it gets, your crew will have it made in the shade! The high elevation lends to picturesque views of the majestic Mount Shasta and surrounding woodlands.
Scott River is very popular for snagging salmon and trout, so bring your pole if you're an avid angler. Hunting is also allowed in the area -- wear bright colors if you feel like hiking during open season. Spot is more than welcome to join you during your stay, but keep in mind that dogs are not allowed on the hiking trails. This forest is home to over 400 different (and equally amazing) animal species, one of which is the black bear. Make sure you store any food in the bear-proof storage boxes to avoid luring them to your tent with the smell of your tasty vittles!
Summer is peak season for camping here, so make reservations well in advance if you want to visit during this time -- slots go fast! Indian Scotty Campground offers large groups a convenient and affordable wilderness experience that is not to be missed!
