For perhaps thousands of years, Yana Camp has been used by people to camp in an inviting grassy area in the partial shade of the oak trees adjacent to the salmon-filled Sacramento River

It has plenty of tent sites (more than 12). 

It retains its primeval appeal.  The one upgrade is an outhouse.  And you should obtain a California Campfire Permit online

May-Oct is too hot, dry, and/or prickly.  But winter and spring are usually delightful

Wildflowers peak late March into early April

The Sacramento River starts to flood the trail at River Stage 19.0-feet.  Check this automated river gauge for current reading: Sacramento River at Bend Bridge

The trail at Camp Gulch floods at River Stage 9.0-feet, but you can just take the bypass trail to get around that

The tent sites in the grassy areas under the oaks are very nice.  The may be ants, however.  Theses ants like to crawl into equipment, so keep your stuff inside your tent and keep the tent zipped closed

This hike is in Sacramento River Bend Area; owned by the public, managed by Redding Field Office of Bureau of Land Management. Backpacking welcomed.

Calif. Campfire Permit required for backpacking stoves and campfires.  Redding Bureau of Land Management campfire restrictions here
