Dispersed Camping in the National Forests:Much of the forest is available to dispersed camping. This is camping in areas that are not official campsites. To obtain information go to any Forest Ranger Station or stop in at the Klamath National Forest Headquarters in Yreka, California. While at a station pick up a California Campfire Permit while there ~ they are often good for the entire season and free of charge. Please check the National Forest website for information on "dispersed camping".

  2. Thanks for the post Sandra! Can you be more specific on the question about recommending places to eat... general price range, Siskiyou County ~ any special town? Nice "sit down" places, or quicker food? Vegan? Let me know and I will post a few places you might try.
