The town of Willow Creek, at the junction of 299 (Trinity River National Scenic Highway) and 96 (Bigfoot Scenic Highway), is located inside the Six Rivers National Forest. Surrounded by magnificent natural landscape, this little community offers many popular pursuits from river rafting and kayaking to hiking and bird watching. Just 12 miles from Willow Creek on Highway 96 is the Hoopa Valley Indian Reservation, the largest Indian reservation in California.


Approximately 1 hour’s drive from the Pacific coast and 2 hours from Redding, Willow Creek enjoys sunny weather all summer long. A popular tourist destination because of beaches and parks, as well as extensive roads for scenic driving or biking, and trails for hiking in the Six Rivers National Forest. The dense forests provide exceptional wildlife viewing of elk, deer, river otters, black bears, mink, bald eagles and peregrine falcons.

Home to farms, artists and a vibrant retirement community, this town has plenty of retail options and stores for grocery and camping supplies. Get coffee or dine at the town’s many local eateries. Pick up fresh produce or fruit at a local farm stand.
