To begin, Lassen Volcanic National Park is definitely under appreciated. This park is stunning, with lakes, interesting geothermal activity, and trails galore. I initially reserved a site on rec.gov to camp at Manzanita Lake for 3 nights. I didn't stay at the Summit Lake campground, as it wasn't open in mid-June. There are also walk-up... more

Nice campground close to the lake. Had a little trouble gettin level with our 31 foot MH. General store nearby with necessities, showers, laundry. Kayak rentals at the lake at concessionaire pricing. No cell phone service in the campground even with a booster but go back out to the ranger station and take a right, drive 1 mile to marke... more

“Nice campground, but not good for big rigs”

Reviewed Jul 12, 2018

We had checked information before going to this campground and saw that it indicated sites that were 45' - we figured we'd find something for our 43' motorhome. While there are pull through sites that may be as long as 45' (maybe even longer), they are tightly curved crescent shapes which are not amenable to large motorhomes with long ... more

....unless you like a wonderful National Park Campground with room for larger rigs, tents, no hookups, remote camping, and some of the most scenic views anywhere. The $12/night was using our senior pass which allowed free entry into the park (normally $20) and half price camping. We had a reservation for 4 nights in the A loop start... more

This campground is right above Lake Manzanita so we walked to the lake several times including a sunset and the trail around the lake. Next time, we will bring a kayak. The campground was nice. The sites were shaded and not too close to each other, although closer than we have been at some other national and state parks. Since th... more

How, my dear Lassen, do you do it? You are a quintessential park. Like Glacier or Yosemite or Teton, you rise majestic the alpine mountains, ever snow capped, with the forested beauty of high conifers speckling your altitude, lakes of wrinkled cellophane clear reflection filling your crevices. The jays, the ravens, an osprey swooshi... more
