You’d Never Know One Of The Most Incredible Natural Wonders In Northern California Is Hiding In This Small Park

Did you know that one of the largest freshwater springs in the United States is located in a small park in Northern California?

Ahjumawi Lava Springs State Park is about 4 miles by 1 mile. Two-thirds of the park is covered in rock from lava flows that occurred 3,000-6,000 years ago. From the shore, visitors can see fresh spring water flowing from the lava rock. And this beautiful natural wonder is right in your backyard!

Once visitors paddle across the waters to the park, there are many hiking trails where you can get a close-up look at the lava rock and other volcanic features. The campgrounds in Ahjumawi Lava Springs State Park is a fun experience, partly due to the fact it’s possible you’ll have the campground all to yourself. The park has three primitive campgrounds, meaning bare-bones camping so come prepared. Remember when camping to leave no trace so this beautiful piece of nature can stay pristine.
