We welcome you to our website and thank you for your interest in the McArthur ~ Burney Falls Memorial State Park, commonly referred to as Burney Falls Park.  Here you will be introduced not only to our spectacular park, but also to Ahjumawi State Park and Castle Crags State Park.  We will talk about what to do while visiting or staying at the park, nearby attractions, park activities, news and events, and our new visitors center and gift shop.  We'll discuss the McArthur-Burney Falls Interpetive Association and Friends of the Falls, and we will provide you with links to other parks, similar organizations and area attractions.  Come and visit with us... We don't bite, but the fish do!!!

The lake is formed by a hydroelectric dam and is filled by the Pit River, Cayton Creek, Clark Creek, Hat Creek, and Burney Creek.  It sports a wide variety of bass and trout.
