BLM Junction City Campground reopened for public use
REDDING, Calif. – The Bureau of Land Management has reopened the Junction City Campground west of Redding after a short temporary closure to the public while the facility was used as a base camp for firefighters working on the nearby Hobo Fire on the Shasta-Trinity National Forest. The fire has been contained after burning about 400 acres.
The campground, about a mile-and-a-half west of Junction City on State Route 299, offers 22 campsites suitable for tents, trailers and RVs. It offers convenient access to the Trinity River and excellent opportunities for fishing, kayaking, swimming and gold panning.
The BLM offers additional Trinity River camping experiences and river access at the Steiner Flat, Douglas City and Steel Bridge campgrounds, all along State Highway 299 west of Redding. Information is available by visiting www.blm.gov/visit/trinity-wild-and-scenic-river.
The BLM reminds visitors that campfires and other uses of open flame, including barbecues and camp stoves, are not currently allowed because of high fire dangers, including within campgrounds. Details on current fire restrictions on BLM lands managed by the Redding Field Office can be found online at https://go.usa.gov/xGKQf.
