Fodor's Review

Encompassing 1.6 million acres in the northeast corner of California, Modoc National Forest protects 300 species of wildlife, including Rocky Mountain elk, wild horses, mule deer, and pronghorn antelope. In spring and fall, watch for migratory waterfowl as they make their way along the Pacific Flyway above the forest. The numerous campsites within the forest are all available on a "first come, first served" basis.
