Camping in McCloud

Rene Agredano, Demand Media  - McCloud is a rustic alpine community with a colorful past as a prosperous lumber town. Situated in the shadow of Mount Shasta at 3,200 feet above sea level and surrounded by over 1 million acres of national forest lands, today McCloud is no longer a hub of commercial logging activity; instead, its bustling downtown area serves as a year-round base camp for anglers, hikers, hunters, campers and off-road enthusiasts.
