Just like the group campgrounds, Manzanita Lake Campground is made up of 4 loops: A and C are reservable and B and D are first-come first-serve. Spend the day fishing with your feet in the cool water and watch the stars rise in the lake’s reflection!

Not sure why, but the Manzanita Lake Group Campground comes up as the first search result. Anyways...this is my go to campground when I want to just get away. It's truly an undiscovered gem! Loop D is for tents only and is first come, first served, but if you get there by early Friday evening, you should be able to get a site! There's lots to do in the park including the hike up Mount Lassen (for those of you who have lots of energy), hike to Bumpass Hell (the geothermal area) or a leisurely walk around Manzanita Lake with one of the most picturesque views of Mount Lassen. Oh and the campstore has softserve (store only open in summer).

Campsite #18 and #19 are my favs in loop D but it's first come, first serve!campfire amenityGreat views of the Milky Way just a short drive out of the campsiteIt's a beautiful drive through the park
