Mount Shasta is a dominating feature at many of our RV Parks along the I-5 corridor. Close to the Mountain, with beautiful views you’ll also find the Friendly RV Park off the south Weed I-5 Interchange. The folks at Friendly live up to their name – they know the area and are a great resource for places to visit. In McCloud you’ll find the beautiful McCloud Dance Country RV Park. To get to McCloud, take Hwy 89 east for about 12 miles. The town is delightful and views of Mount Shasta stunning.
