GREAT NEWS! THE TRINITY RIVER HAS GONE BACK UP TO 1150 CFS AND IT'S STAYING THERE THROUGH SEPTEMBER! This is to augment the Klamath, which the Trinity flows into, but we get the benefits and it's like Christmas came early. With an El Nino predicted to finally break the drought this winter, the pressure is reduced on Trinity Lake's dwindling supply, and we will get to raft and kayak and SUP like crazy the rest of summer and into fall (as in the 8/23/15 shot of Heidi above)! This level is great for everyone from beginners to advanced, so really now, what are you waiting for?
Our unique river cabins are spread out over 3 different locations about 15 minutes from Weaverville. Their individual links are above in the header bar. We also have Alpine Fish & Ski Haus in Dunsmuir, near Mt. Shasta. It's ideal for as a rendezvous point from the north and south, and we even have special one-night rates for travelers passing through.
Our Trinity cabins range from a real, restored Miner's Cabin with its own private river rock patio mere feet from the water, to a large, spacious A frame with every amenity. One ultra-private getaway has its own wild peacock strutting the grounds as it suits his whim. We are dog-friendly and there is no minimum stay, although we do prefer 2 nights on weekends, unless you're booking very close to the date.
Our water adventures include Kayaking, SUPs (stand-up paddle boards) and Rafting.
They're open to the public, not just our cabin guests. We give excellent lessons and run guided river kayak trips;
rent and sell SUPs for lake or river use (free demos for guests!), and we run guided river raft trips.
Fish from our banks or at nearby Lewiston Lake. Scroll down this page for more on the fun stuff.

ABOUT REVIEWS: People like to check reviews on sites such as Yelp and depend on them to make wise choices where to spend their money. But most don't know Yelp controls whose reviews show up, if at all. We have almost all 4.5-5 star reviews, but because our guests don't tend to review other businesses, their reviews are masked. In the early days, we fought Yelp and said this was ridiculous. These are legitimate reviews by real guests who took a lot of time to post heartfelt comments. Yelp's response was we should make our guests post more reviews of other businesses in order to be heard. That's plain wrong. So we refuse to advertise for Yelp by posting a link to them, but if you do use their site, be sure to look at the lower part of a listing to see the filtered reviews for a more accurate representation.
THREE BIG THINGS:
The salmon and steelhead are here in the upper river and fishers are doing very well. Look at the Chinook long-time guest Chris Jaffe caught (below)! He's got quite a track record here with winter steelhead, but this King is the biggest fish he's ever caught. Chris creates interesting photos of his fish by use of cropping and subtle color shifts, as you will see on our
2nd BIG THING: We have a new name! We're changing to Trinity River Adventure Cabins. Formerly we were Trinity River Adventure Inn, but that was when we only had one vacation cabin and we rented rooms in it, so it's about time we reflected our evolution. And to celebrate the change, Heidi has created brand new T-shirts and a fantastic, T-backed dress, all with a steelhead she drew from a fish a guest caught and released a couple of years ago. They're available in the cabins, as well as by mail.
You can see the black dress below (white is also available, and both can get Heidi's ultra-fine glitter treatment if you're interested). It's a delightful cotton/poly blend that washes great and dries in seconds. Dress it up as Heidi did here, or wear it as a casual dress with flip flops, or use it as a swimsuit cover-up. It is also a neat nighty and available in XS-XL.
Kid's T's are in hot pink or lime green and adult T's are in lime, forest green, royal blue, pink and navy. We also have performance tees that are incredibly efficient at wicking moisture from your skin and drying with no odor. They're the ideal shirt under fishing gear as well as outer garments and come in grey and navy.
3RD BIG THING: We just got another shipment of our inflatable stand-up paddleboards (iSUPs). They are so popular, and the price is so good, several Oregon parties have bought them and either had us ship to them, or they've driven down to pick them up; it's a pretty sweet deal. We also have the perfect hard SUP for the river (Ironhides) and superb SUP paddles that are adjustable (included with SUP purchase).
