Black Butte Lake is the perfect place for a star party. The skies are dark and comparable to Shingletown or Adin. HOW DARK IS IT- REALLY? Access is easy and the roads are excellent. Camping and RV sites are clean and spacious. Water, restrooms, hot showers, an on-site dump station, wildlife and cooperative rangers all will contribute to a comfortable and pleasant stay. All lights will be controlled by the park rangers in the campground, so light pollution will be at a minimum.
Few places in California combine such pastoral character with dark skies and comfortable camping. And in spring, the rolling oak foothills will be carpeted with green grass.
Because of limits on the number of people and vehicles, this star party is private.
