AROUND Campsite Pros


There are a lot of things to do around our park in Big Bend, CA 

Outdoor & Adventure Activities:


Fishing: If your goal is to catch fish we have you covered.


PIT RIVER: From the riverfront at the park, upstream or downstream the Pit River boasts the best trout fishing in California. Get the latest fishing reports from Orvis. Our park is located on the Pit 5 section of the Pit River. A 7 minute Drive will get you to Pit 4 Dam and a 25 minute Drive will get you to the bottom of Pit 3. It takes 44 minutes to get you to the top of Pit 3 and Lake Britton. 


IRON CANYON RESERVOIR: CampSite Pros Pit River RV Park and Campground is Located 5.8 miles from Iron Canyon Reservoir which also boasts great fishing. Plus it's regularly planted. You will find the planting report and get the latest reports on fishing at Iron Canyon from NorCal Fishing Reports. Iron Canyon Reservoir impounds water diverted from the McCloud River and contains Rainbow Trout and Brown Trout. This reservoir provides an opportunity for canoeing, kayaking and float tubing.

TUNNEL RESERVOIR: 2.1 Miles from our park this reservoir is has some great catches. Recently we took out a couple for their first fishing experience in our area and to their surprise it was one of those, every cast gets a bite days. Landing over a dozen fish each in a short matter of time they couldn't be more delighted.  Sometimes you just are in the right place at the right time. We'd like to think that is pretty often around here. Maybe that's why many of our guests ask us not to tell anyone about fishing here. You can keep a secret, right?
