There are 3 sets of falls to visit in this area each one so unique. The lower falls can be used to wade in the water. Great trail systems and there is no fee.

This is a must see when traveling around the Mt. Shasta / McCloud area of CA. Lower, Middle and Upper falls are fabulous. A very quiet area a distance from Rte 89, so you don't hear any traffic noise. Lovely place to hike around, or...More

I am not specifically aware of such, but the area has been known as a fishing and hunting destination for decades. I expect an agent could find a nice cabin.
