A Message from the Chamber President – Welcome to our beautiful little town on the Sacramento River. We host wonderful fishing spots, beautiful hiking and walking trails, excellent and well known restaurants, and lovely motels and vacation rentals. Our historic downtown is a nationally designated historic district, carefully preserved for all ages to enjoy. We are fortunate to have a train depot where Amtrak picks up and delivers passengers. North Dunsmuir hosts the beautiful Botanical Gardens City Park on the River. Many weddings anniversaries, concerts, and special events occur here. Next to the park is our ballpark where the famous Babe Ruth once played. And South of the ballpark is our Olympic size pool, available to all. Local swimming holes abound and are easily accessed. Two famous waterfalls delight the senses, Hedge Creek Falls and Mossbrae Falls. Castle Crags State Park is only three exits to the South. Make Dunsmuir your destination for fun, romance, vacation, and relaxation. Enjoy our beautiful scenery and slow pace of life.
The Chamber of Commerce and Visitors’ Center was established in 1949. It has gone through many changes over the years and is a viable business which exists to assist our members and promote tourism and a vigorous business climate. The Visitors’ Center is currently open five days a week, Monday-Friday with some staffing by volunteers. If you are interested, please drop by and sign up! The Chamber sponsors several events and committees for which members can volunteer and enhance their business and community. The Dunsmuir Visitors’ Guide, produced by the Chamber, can be obtained at the Visitors’ Center. The guides are mailed around the world in response to website requests. Our website, which is available to all members, receives over 10,000 hits in peak months.
The Chamber also welcomes individuals, non-profits, and service organizations. Dues are $100 for businesses and $35 for other categories. Joining the Chamber makes good business sense for you.
Since being established the Chamber has survived through many difficult yet transforming times. This shows the flexibility and commitment to change when change is needed. In 2003 the Chamber was incorporated in California and received a 501(c)(6) non-profit status with federal and state recognition. Also in 2003, the Chamber logo and slogan were service marked with the State of California. The Chamber is a viable business which exists to assist our members.
