Observing diverse wildlife and getting out into the wilderness is what Woodson Bridge State Recreation Area is all about. This woodland area, located 6 miles east of I-5 and 3 miles west of Hwy 99 at Corning, is the perfect place to clear your mind and experience the serenity of nature. You can launch a boat or relax on the sandy beach as the majestic peaks of Mt. Shasta, Mt. Lassen and the Trinity Alps loom in the distance. Many endangered species make their home in the area — it is a winter home for Bald Eagles and a summer nesting site for the Yellow Billed Cuckoo. More than a hundred different plant species have been identified in the Woodson Bridge State Recreation Area and make up the diverse plant life that set the scene for excellent camping, fishing and hiking.
