FYI-- that picture is from Juniper Campground on Mt Diablo, which is nowhere near Juniper Lake. I haven't been to Juniper Lake, but I've been to Juniper on Mt Diablo many, many times.

Juniper Lake Campground is inside Lassen Volcanic National Park and adjacent to a lake which is the only source of water. The campground is very compact and populated with RV's and families on set schedules (which kinda creeped my family out). Sites were a little too close for us -throw a stone and hit a neighbor- and the porta-pottys were disgusting and ancient, except for the one at the entrance. Dogs are "allowed" but you can't take them on trails in the national park nor can you leave them at the campsite, SO. . . if you bring a dog don't plan on hiking (or doing anything) as a family. Also, all the animals KNOW you can't shoot them and they are terribly brazen. The deers are like mosquitoes as soon as it gets dark. Bears are frequent.

Lake is fun too. Nice trails with tons of deer and black bears!Harkness trail is just in the middle of the campground.Good Bear Box.
