Ahjumawi Lava Springs State Park contains roughly 5,930 acres of natural and cultural resources. Located in the northeast
corner of Shasta County in the Fall River Valley basin, the park lies along the northern shorelines of Big Lake, Horr Pond,
Ja She Creek (formerly “Squaw Creek”), and the Little Tule River; it is roughly 57 miles east of Mount Shasta. Visitors may
only access the park by shallow boat. The closest public boat launch, called “Rat Farm,” is located at the southwestern tip
of Big Lake.
