Bluff Creek is a tributary to the Klamath River, and drains approx. 48,000 acres of steep forested terrain of the Six Rivers National Forest. The mainstem of Bluff Creek is over 25 miles long, drains north to south and consists of a varied species of conifers and hardwoods. From the day use area you can observe where the mighty power of Bluff Creek during the 1964 flood, clawed through the hillside creating a new path for the creeks confluence with the Klamath River.Recreational OpportunitiesThe Bluff Creek area offers several developed campgrounds to enjoy, including E-NE-NUCK, Aikens Creek and Fish Lake Campground and hiking trails. Whitewater rafting and fishing are available in the adjacent Klamath River or downstream to the Trinity River. Care to venture farther up the drainage you will find several small lakes and dispersed camping areas such as Louse Camp, Divide Lake, Notice Creek, and other area's available to explore. This is also where the famous Patterson-Gimlin film of Bigfoot was shot- be on the lookout for Sasquatches in the area!
This is literally the most iconic place in the world associated with Bigfoot. The Patterson-Gimlin footage has gone down in infamy as the most authentic footage of the big hairy guy ever taken, and any Sasquatch lover absolutely has to make the trek to visit. Make sure you bring lots of water, your hiking boots (and some bug spray) cause the path can get pretty treacherous. It's totally worth it though!
