Willow Creek is known as the gateway into the Six Rivers National Forest. This town is located less than an hour east from Humboldt County’s coast on scenic Highway 299. Given that it is situated along the banks of the gorgeous Trinity River it is easy to
understand why the town’s motto is “River Fun in the Mountain Sun”. Willow Creek offers endless opportunities for outdoor recreation including river rafting and kayaking, fishing, backpacking, rock climbing, mountain biking, camping, and even golfing at Bigfoot
Golf & Country Club. Check out Bigfoot Rafting and Six Rivers Rafting Company for more information about guided river tours in the area.
Willow Creek has a very rich history in logging and is also a known hot spot for Bigfoot sightings. The China Flat Museum located right in town offers visitors interesting information about the town’s heritage and as well the opportunity to view the largest
collection of Bigfoot artifacts in the world. Every September, Willow Creek hosts the annual Bigfoot Days festival to celebrate the local legend as well.
Dubbed the Wine Country of Humboldt County, Willow Creek is also well known for its award winning wineries. Take a tour and do some tasting at Winnett Vineyards or do some sampling of the excellent wine that is produced here at the annual Taste of Willow
Creek event that takes place late September. Other nearby attractions include the Klamath and Salmon Rivers, The Marble Mountain Wilderness located in the Klamath National Forest in Siskiyou County, and the Bigfoot Scenic Highway 96 that starts in town and
follows the Trinity River through the Hoopa Valley. Come enjoy some river fun in the mountain sun in Willow Creek today!
