Tannery Gulch Campground

Area Status: Open

The Tannery Gulch campground is located 12 miles north of Weaverville on Highway 3 and is on the shore of Trinity Lake nestled among tall pines, firs and oaks. Trout, bass and catfish can be caught along the shores of this campground.This attractive campground has four loops (A, B, C, and D) and a spur in a pleasant mix of conifers and deciduous trees next to Trinity Lake. Campsites in every loop except A have a view of lake. Although there are patches of middlestory, most campsites are close to each other making privacy minimal.

All campsites have room for a tent, have a table and fireplace; some also have a bear- proof food locker. It has paved roads and spurs. It has a nature trail, cabin, three storage sheds, a garage, and a trailer pad with septic, electric and water hookups.
