Fill up a bottle, take a moment to appreciate the amazing water source in front of you! Just a few minutes from downtown

We came here early in the morning and loved it! Peaceful quiet and nice trails to walk our dog. Would go back to Shasta just to experience this park in the early morning rain again.

Went to check out the park and the headwaters of the Sacramento River. Mossy damp park with some Fire Service-esque buildings. Nice area around the spring and benches facing the out toward the stream instead of in toward the park. A nice place indeed.

Beautiful fall colors! The water is cold and the air is crisp and expecting the first snowfall tomorrow. Perfect! Excellent place to picnic and bring kids to play.

We went everyday to fill our refillable water bottles. I was mesmerized by the opportunity to drink water directly from a spring. The park itself is filled with locals and transients all there to enhance your journey.

Came here 4 or 5 times during our 3 day trip to get the fresh spring water from the Sacramento River headwaters! Refill your bottles here, don't waste your money on buying them. It is as good as Crystal Geyser, they have their factory here!...More

Great view of Mt. Shasta. Major barbeque pits with tables. Bath rooms nearby. Plenty of parking. Plenty of open grass.

Love this park! The sacred, healing headwaters of the Sacramento River; the paths over the bridge, through forest and glen. Beautiful place for scenic and people pictures.

It's accessible. There are gentle slopes that may require muscle with a wheel chair but not bad. You will have to have someone else get the water from the source but you will be able to view it easily.
