Lodging in Northern California
Rafting in Northern California usually means that you will be staying in the Klamath drainage since the Trinity, Cal Salmon, and Scott Rivers are all tributaries to the Klamath. There are first-come, first-served Forest Service campgrounds up and down each of the rivers, but many people will enjoy staying in a room before, during, and/or after their rafting trip.
For those of you paddling the Lower Klamath, Scott, or Cal Salmon Rivers the closest lodging will be in the cute Hamlet of Happy Camp. As you enter Happy Camp, you will notice that the townspeople are very proud of their relationship with Bigfoot. In fact, the whole town congregates each year for their annual "Bigfoot Days" held on Labor Day weekend.
There are a few stores in town, gas, and a nice Deli. There are also a number of places to stay.
Forest Lodge Motel

Klamath Inn Motel & RV Park
Willow Creek is a quaint little town near the Trinity River and along Willow Creek. It is approximately the same distance from the Cal Salmon as Happy Camp and just over half an hour away from the rafting areas of the Trinity River. You'll find a couple of great places to get a hamburger, a nice coffee shop, plenty of ways to get gas, and a Pizza Factory ("We Toss 'em, they're awesome"). There are a few decent places to get some shut eye in town.
