Peace and serenity were what these campers were after, and they got it! "A lot of people have said that this place is a lot better than a lot of the campsites because it is kind of tucked in and stuff and it's so quiet and everyone just keeps to their own, there are no party people and it's really nice," camper Shea Duke stated.
The Woodson Bridge State Recreation Area was booked over the weekend, with all thirty-seven sites taken Saturday and only a few open spots on Sunday. "Camping with my family is very nice because we get to ride our bikes and go fishing and walk around and show them nature," camper Trace Olaughlin explained. More than a hundred plant species can be found like the Large Valley Oak, the California Black Walnut and the Sycamore. The view is great all around; Mount shasta, Mount Lassen and the Trinity Alps can all be seen in the distance. There's another perk; it's a short drive for many, so campers can spend more on smores instead of gasoline.
Just around the corner from the campsite, people are able to fish, swim, and enjoy the sunshine! "Especially with how the weather has been this past week, it's been stormy and raining out of now where and this is how it should be, it's June," Duke said.
Fourth of July is just around the corner and park officials suggest making reservatons a week in advance when camping on a holiday.
