There are historic tours listed at the Whiskeytown Ranger led tours page. This from their web site

“Walk In Time (2 hours)

Wednesday and Saturday at 3:00 pm
Discover how pioneers/prospectors Charles Camden and Levi Tower reshaped the landscape to create a home for their families and an “oasis” for many travelers during and after the California Gold Rush. After a tour of the Camden house, built in 1852, enjoy a leisurely stroll through the area, then try your hand at finding gold the old-fashioned way-with a gold pan in the creek! Please bring a bottle of water and extra clothing if you choose to get wet. Meet the ranger at the Tower House Historic District parking lot in front of the bulletin board kiosk.”

One Response to Camden House offers a glimpse of Shasta history

  1. Camden R. Hubbard says:

    This house belonged to my husband’s great, great grandfather. He spent many holidays here with his parents Mr. and Mrs. Herbert Hubbard. I just hope fires have not taken their toll here. Adding to the family tree is another descendant of Mr. Camden, Camden Lewis Hubbard, son of Daniel and Andrea Hubbard and grandson of Camden Richards Hubbard.
