McArthur-Burney Falls Memorial State Park in Shasta County
Film the Falls Teddy Roosevelt Called "The Eighth Wonder of the World"
One of the many extraordinary locations in Shasta County is McArthur-Burney Falls Memorial State Park, located about an hour northeast of Redding. While it's not the tallest or largest waterfall in the state, the centerpiece 129-foot Burner Falls is quite possibly the most picturesque. Named the "most beautiful waterfall in North America" by the Huffington Post, it flows year-round from underground springs into a dream-like pool.
The park also boasts extensive hiking trails through evergreen forests and a campground surrounded by tall pines, an amphitheater, onsite store and nearby Lake Britton.
No stranger to filming, the park's credits include "The Parson and the Outlaw," "The Treasure of Lost Canyon," "Stand by Me" and "Willow."
