The translation of "Ahjumawi" is "where the waters come together....," which accurately describes this spot, where the Big Lake, Tule River, Ja-She Creek, Lava Creek, and Fall River meet.
Here you'll find a range of wildlife including great blue herons, bald eagles and deer, as well as preserved lava flows, broken by faults and cracks.
The Park can only be reached by boat. There are no public roads to it and private motor vehicles are prohibited within. Visitors can launch into Big Lake at a PG&E public boat launch known as "Rat Farm."
