The park's centerpiece is the foot Burney Falls, which is not the highest or largest waterfall in the state, but possibly the most beautiful. Additional water comes from springs, ing to create a mist-filled basin. Burney Creek originates from the park's underground springs and flows to Lake Britton, getting larger along the way to the majestic falls. The park's landscape was created by volcanic activity as well as erosion from weather and streams.

This volcanic region is surrounded by mountain peaks and is covered by black volcanic rock, or basalt. Created over a million years ago, the layered, porous basalt retains rainwater and snow melt, which forms a large underground reservoir.

Within the park, the water emerges as springs at and above Burney Falls, where it flows at million gallons every day. Burney Falls was named after pioneer settler Samuel Burney who lived in the area in the s. The McArthurs were pioneer settlers who arrived in the late s.

Descendants were responsible for saving the waterfall and nearby land from development. They bought the property and gave it to the state as a gift in the s. On the Sunday of Columbus Day weekend, the park hosts Heritage Day, featuring demonstrations and recreations of activities and crafts common to people during the late 19th century.

Photograph by Michael Wopat McArthur-Burney Falls Memorial State Park Burney Falls at McArthur-Burney Falls Memorial State Park is an outstanding example of a waterfall and stream fed by large springs that are commonly associated with areas covered by recent lava flows, and also of a waterfall formed by the undercutting of horizontal rock layers.

The soft white rock is diatomite. Its presence is evidence that a very large lake once filled the region and supported abundant tiny freshwater plankton called diatoms. These fires continue to burn, potentially causing increased community evacuations and bad air quality and have the potential to cause park closures at any time.
