Site 18 - Campsite right outside Lassen NP
The campsites were nice and decent size. They were very close together, but there weren’t many occupied so it didn’t bother us. There is a nice trail to walk behind the camp ground. Being able to buy firewood was great, but there was a lot of green wood that did not burn well, and I couldn’t dig down to the older wood without tearing apart the wood pile. It’s great to have showers on-site, and the bathrooms toward the front of the campground were great. However, the vault toilets at the back of the campground were the worst smelling ones I have ever experienced. There doesn’t seem to be ventilation. I have experienced many outhouses and primitive bathroom situations but we almost puked in this one.

Site 6 - Campsite right outside Lassen NP
Short drive from Lassen Volcanic NP
We arrived after dark and did not end up making a fire, but there was firewood for purchase. Site 6 was across the road from the bathroom/shower facilities which was perfect because it was super close yet not right next to the path that people would be walking on had it been busier. Would stay again if ever in the area!

3rd time camping here. Not my last.
Minus the very inconsiderate people next to me at 12am-2am, this was the best stay yet. Had some special moments on the creek with a mama and baby deer. We just sat with each other across the creek as we ate our snacks. The grounds are always immaculate. Showers and bathrooms are always clean and the water is always hot. Friendly people. Good food. Great place to stay.

Love this place.
It was our second time trailer camping here. It’s an awesome jumping off place - for exploring the area. The grounds are clean, chill, and when the restaurant/market is open, you don’t need much else. All the people who run it are so lovely.

Very close to Lassen!
Beautiful place with hiking trails and river fishing! We loved staying here with our dog. Firewood and ice available, showers for a fee, and excellently maintained campsites. We camped in a tent and had lots of space in our site. Great location for exploring Lassen Volcanic National park!

Our camp spot was spacious and beautiful. The noise of the creek running in the background really elevated the experience. Facilities were clean and easy to access. We look forward to revisiting in the future.

This is a really nice campground! Picnic benches and fire grates at most sites, just like in the NP campgrounds. I loved sleeping at site 13 where I could hear the sound of the stream. Conveniently located to the park! I also realized it’s ideally located around 5000’ altitude to help acclimatize your first night in the area, before you go up to the 7000-8000’ altitudes in the park the next day.

Found this place last minute and happy we did cause we are definitely coming back! Jillian was an amazing host and explained everything to us. The workers were sooo friendly and accommodating. The campground was clean, quiet, the other campers were respectful and friendly as well. We felt safe. They also had a river and trails near by that we did. They played Ice Age on the projector screen out in the meadow area and had popcorn. It was so cool! We made sure we ate one night at their restaurant which we are happy we did, the hamburgers and fries were soooo good. Even their ice cream. Highly recommend and only 15 minutes outside of Lassen NP

Beautiful view of Milky way!
Loved my time at this campground. It was my first time camping solo and it was just perfect. The sites were a little close together with little privacy from each but campers were respectful and though it was a holiday weekend no one partied. The little lodge was nice to grab a cold beer and charge my phone after being out all day. I'd love to come back.

Clean bathrooms with shelving to place hygiene items, shower had hot water, and cool stream close by and a pleasant sound to wake up to. Purchasing ice and firewood at any time is convenient. Site was well maintained. Would stay here again if I cannot secure a reservation at a state or national park.

A beautiful and relaxing campground
This was our first time at Mill Creek Resort and will not be our last! We really liked this place and we're pretty picky. Large and well-maintained campsites in a gorgeous wilderness setting. We stayed in #1, excellent, although I'd suggest that the host work on leveling the spot for a tent...it has a bit of a slope. Other than that, we loved it. All the spaces looked great! They have a bathroom/laundry house very close with 2 flush toilets, sink, coin-op showers and electric lights - deluxe, clean and much appreciated! Pit toilets are also available. Also a dishwashing station and spigots with potable water. The main building/store is only open Friday-Sunday but they have plenty of firewood and ice available (honor system payment). Yes, we were able to have a campfire! The people - super friendly and accommodating. We met Joe and Carley -both were fun to talk to, informative and helpful. We did not eat in their restaurant, but did buy a few things including a cool T-shirt, beer and marshmallows. This is not a general store however. They selection is limited. There are a couple of country general stores about 15 minutes away. Location is fantastic - and a far superior camping experience than staying inside the park. It's a lovely 20-minute drive into Lassen Volcanic Nat'l Park. We went 2 days in a row and were not bothered at all by the drive. Overall - a great vibe, not crowded, super relaxing and quiet, and a beautiful area.

Camping with kids
It is lovely. Well maintained, clean, quiet and family friendly. Be aware- no T-mobile cell at all, but this should be a plus :) the path to the creek is steep but my 3 year old navigated it well so you probably can too. It’s literally at the edge of Lassen national forest which is kind of cool. I would definitely stay here again.

Love camping here
It was beautiful and my family and I loved the deers around the camp we love hearing the sound of the river we will definitely come back here again. The only complaint I have was some people being loud after 10pm who camped close to us. The music and the constant slamming of there car doors through out the night. But other then that I enjoy ever moment there

Close to the park, the camping was great! Plenty of shade and the showers and bathrooms are key. Took a dip in the creek to cool off after hiking. Got what I forgot at the camp store and the hammocks are great for an afternoon nap. We will be back

Such a great experience! We stayed at site #5. It can feel a bit close to the other sites but being in such close proximity to the bathrooms and water stations was worth it and other groups around us were respectful of noise and space. Well maintained sites and in close proximity to the south entrance of the park! We will definitely be back.

Site 13 - Campsite right outside Lassen NP
Jillian and Joseph's Mill Creek Resort was a great destination for our first camp in three years. Both pit and flushable toilets were within walking distance of our campsite, along with the cleanest private coin operated showers. I'm not certain I've ever had the option of showering while camping, so this was a bonus! We stayed at campsite 13, which was next to a short hike down to a flowing creek that was safe enough for my six year old child to explore with supervision. We must've spent an hour plus down there going from rock to rock and exploring the creek, swearing that this was one of the best experiences of the trip. Lassen National Park was a short drive from MCR, which was huge! We only explored a small fraction of it, and will definitely be back. Mill Creek Resort was cozy and hospitable with friendly folks around to point you in the right direction. I would recommend checking this place out if you're planning to go camping in Mineral, CA!

This is such a special location! Nestled in the woods, deer walk around and share your space with you. The shower was wonderful, there’s a restaurant and little store if you happen to forget something or just don’t want to cook! Wish we had more time here, thank you!
