Bass Hill Wildlife Area


This wildlife area consists of approximately 5,600 acres of rolling hills, mostly of sagebrush and grasslands. The area was acquired to preserve winter range for the Bass Hill sub-herd of the Doyle deer herd. Coyotes, California and mountain quail, and golden eagles can also be seen here. The property was designated as a wildlife area by the Fish and Game Commission in 1977.

For more information, call the area at (530) 254-6808 or the Northern Region's Redding office at (530) 225-2300.
