About Fall River Valley Chamber of Commerce...
Fishing is world famous in the lakes and rivers in the area, presidents and movies stars have been known to cast a line here. The area is also a flyover for numerous species of waterfowl. Outdoor enthusiasts will find many undiscovered treasures to explore in this valley.
The soil is rich and water plentiful, providing for a thriving agricultural community. We are known for our "Fall River Wild Rice", a grower-owned cooperative, as well as for the cattle, hay, strawberry plants and mint produced here.
We have very comfy lodges and motels, a good choice of restaurants, equestrian and rodeo events, a Clark Glasson designed and built golf course, the Fort Crook Museum, white water rafting, artists and galleries. Seasonal events include a Christmas parade of lights, pioneer demonstrations, bike rides, golf tournaments, food festivals and the famous Intermountain Fair.
There are several state parks in the area including McArthur - Burney Falls Memorial State Park which has a 129 ft high spring fed waterfall that flows into Lake Britton. Camping, boating and water recreation are popular activities at Lake Britton.
Ahjumawi Lava Springs State Park, located north of McArthur is unique in that it is accessible only by water. The waters which come together are Big Lake, Tule River, Ja-She Creek, Lava Creek and Fall River. Together they form one of the largest systems of fresh water springs in the country. The area is rugged and home to many species of wildlife year round.
The Pacific Crest Trail crosses many back roads in the area as it passes through Lassen Volcanic National Park, overseen by Lassen Peak (elev. 10,457'). North of the park the PCT follows the Hat Creek Rim toward Mt. Shasta (elev. 14,179'), which defines the north-state skyline.
Surrounded by mountains the Fall River Valley is home to friendly people, wildlife, wildflowers and wild rivers. Fall River Valley Chamber of Commerce welcomes visitors to sample some of the unique opportunities for entertainment, recreation and relaxation in an area that showcases the best of Northern California.
Beautiful scenery, Mt Shasta and Mt Lassen at sunrise, Hat Creek in the spring during a hatch, anywhere the garden club landscapes, the Pit River vista point, Big Lake at sunset or the view out your back door.
Exceptional weather, four seasons without extremes. Summers are hot enough to grow tomatoes and Christmas is white and snowy, but Cal Trans keeps the roads clear.
Plenty of opportunities to get outside and play include swimming at the lake, camping by a creek, horseback riding down a trail, fishing from a boat, or bird watching (especially for waterfowl and raptors). Go golfing at one of Golf Digest’s "Great Value" Award winners (one of only two in California) or go skiing at Mt. Shasta, these are just some of the many outdoor activities to enjoy.
Shopping is easy and you can find what you need. Everything from hardware to flowers is available in the valley. Auto mechanics, electricians, hair stylists, equipment rental, bookkeepers, movie theaters, local newspapers, banks, grocery store, tractors & farm equipment to ranching supplies are just some of the goods, services and professionals available.
Dining out can be burgers and fries or a memorable meal that rivals anything a TV chef could produce. There are pizza places and authentic chile rellenos, breakfast with homemade bread and chef prepared California rolls for dinner.
Lodging can be a clean and comfy motel room, a vacation rental with fishing, a hotel with handmade quilts, cedar cabins in the woods with horseback riding for entertainment or a guest house on a working cattle ranch.
Property in the area is much sought after because of the scenic valley, the small town atmosphere, the agricultural economy and close proximity to both recreation and larger urban centers. Professional realtors specialize in finding the right mix of small town living and housing that fits your life style.
