Located at the historic community of Old Station, Rim Rock Ranch Resort offers a variety of lodging options near the banks of Hat Creek. Cabins were built in the 30's and 40's with fishermen and hunters in mind, but anyone enjoying the abundant recreational opportunities in the area will appreciate the convenience and charm of a good night's stay at Rim Rock Ranch.
Guests can choose to stay in a cozy cabin or more motel-like lodging on the grounds, and there are a couple of log cabins for groups. A country store on the premises is stocked to the brim with anything you'll need for your outdoor adventures, including your fishing license.
Old Station was originally called Hat Creek Station and has been a landmark at the junction of two well-traveled highways. The California Stage Company established the site in the 1850s, but when the U.S. troops that were stationed there pulled out a few years later, it became known as 'Old Station.' Historical markers on the Rim Rock Ranch property offer more details about the site's history.
There are ten cabins and two motel rooms at Rim Rock Ranch. Each cabin includes a kitchen stocked with utensils and dishes so they're ready for use right when you arrive. The cabins are small and cozy, and are tailor made for the outdoor adventurer. The cabins are maintained by the guests, so no housekeeping services are available.
Seasons Open: Year round. Seasonal rates apply.
Trout fishing is top notch in this area of Shasta County, and Rim Rock Ranch is located very near the world-famous Hat Creek. Fishing guide services to help you find that perfect fishing hole can be arranged through Rim Rock Ranch.
Rate Range: Cabins range from $80 a night to $135 for multiple bedrooms. Motel units are $60 per night. Winter rates are also available (Nov - March).
Rim Rock Ranch is easy to find, and is located on Highway 89 near the junction with Highway 44 east.
The Rim Rock Ranch Resort is owned by Jim and Cathy Cimaglia and Chuck and Barbara Gularte. The business is family oriented and supports local organizations such as the volunteer firefighters.
