There are eight camping areas inside Lassen Volcanic National Park. Starting from the Southern Entrance (nearest the Visitors Center) there are: Southwest (a walk-in campground; Summit Lake South; Summit Lake North; Crags; and Manzanita Lake (along the main road) and Warner Valley; Juniper Lake (primitive camping only); and Butte Lake in other parts of the park. I did not camp here but wanted to let you know what is available.
Lassen has a number of campgrounds, which range from campgrounds with full amenities to primitive campgrounds. Manzanita Lake at the north end is my favorite. It is located in a forest, near a catch and release lake, and the camp sites are spacious.
Unique Quality: I like to camp because I really enjoy roughing it. The reason I like this campground is it has showers (coin operated), an electrical outlet for my blow dryer and curling iron, and a general market stocked with food, wine and cooking supplies. When camping, you just never know when you might need to run to the store for a wire whisk, a lemon juicer, a bottle of chardonnay or a tube of anchovy paste.
Directions: First come first serve. We have never had a problem finding a campsite, even over July 4th weekend.
