Maps and Directions to Summer Camp

Mountain Meadow Ranch California summer camp lies on the eastern slopes of the Sierra Nevada Mts., at 4600 feet elevation in Northeast California, halfway between Lake Tahoe and Mt. Lassen Volcanic National Park. The ranch property lies just on the timberline. To our immediate east lies the Great Basin Desert, with everything to the south and west bordered by beautifully forested mountains. The range of mountains upon which Mountain Meadow exists is known as the Diamond Mountain Range. Mountain Meadow Ranch is 8 miles south of Susanville, CA in Lassen County, approximately 2 miles off US Highway 395.

Mountain Meadow Ranch provides transportation for campers to and from the Reno-Tahoe International Airport, a little more than an hour from camp. Campers who fly into Reno are met at their gate of arrival as they come off of their plane by a Mountain Meadow staff member and/or director and escorted through the terminal and to the ranch. Departing campers are escorted by a staff member and/or director from the ranch, through check-in, security, to their gate of departure and onto their plane. From the moment of their arrival until their moment of departure they are attended and supervised by Mountain Meadow staff. Parents make their own flight arrangements based on recommended flights which we provide to our camp families included in the “get ready for camp info packet” delivered to enrolled camper families each spring.
