The 129-foot waterfall is the main attraction of the park. 100 million gallons of water flow over the falls each day. Additional water comes from springs, joining to create a mist-filled basin. Black swifts nest in the cliff behind the falls and rare nests of Bald Eagles can be seen along the shoreline of Lake Britton. The park has 6 miles of hiking trails through an evergreen forest. Lake Britton offers water sport activities, and the park has 128 developed campsites.
The park is located northeast of Redding, 6 miles north of Hwy 299 on Hwy 89 near Burney.
