This national forest and green recreational area is considered the “Crossroads of California.” Why? Well, it’s because the area is crisscrossed with different environments, ranging from mountains, volcanoes, and deserts, all wrapped-up in one massive forest area.
At Lassen Volcanic National Park, you can explore the 1.2 million acres by swimming in huge lakes, looking over panoramic mountain views at 5,100 feet above sea level, and more. Want to sleep under a bright, not-light-polluted stary night? Dozens of disperses campsites dot the area. Or, if you’re feeling adventurous, head into the backcountry. The wilderness areas of Ishi, Caribou and Thousand Lakes offer sublime adventures, nods to native culture, and rich history lessons. Fun Fact: Lassen is one of only two observed habitats of the endangered Sierra Nevada red fox.
Upon entering the parks operated gates, you’ll have the chance to set-up camp at eight campgrounds that range from developed to primitive. Roughly half of the park's campsites are reservable, with four campgrounds populated by only first-come, first-served. Each campsite comes with a litany of amenities, including picnic tables, fire rings (with grills), bear box, and more. However, there are no hookups in the park—so charge-up your devices before heading out. Also, a dump station is located near Manzanita Lake, where you can also find drinking water.
