Bright colorful tents on green lawn under the trees at Tree of Heaven Campground

In the 1800s, Chinese immigrants lived and farmed on this stretch of flat land along the Klamath River. They sold vegetables to the miners and worked in the local mines. They imported a homeland tree called the Tree of Heaven to remind them of their native land. Today the Tree of Heaven Campground is popular for its shaded, grassy campsites, close proximity to Yreka and great access to the Klamath River.
