I have never been to Lassen Volcanic Nat'l Park. I would like to do so. [Edit add: Not this year, to late in the season. I am looking for ideas for in the future. Are there other places to see in the area as well?]

Have any of you guys camped/visited there?

When would be a good time to go?

Where would be the place to stay? I prefer camping in the parks, not RV Resorts.

As you can see, we do not need a huge spot to light.

Thanks!

Better get there soon if you're going this year.

I was driving to Portland a couple of years ago in early November, on my way up the I-5, with intentions of visiting Lassen, and it was snowed in!

Check the weather before you head in that direction.

Great place.

Plenty of free National Forest boondocking close.

Was there in August. We stayed in Craggs (check spelling) CG. Craggs was recommended by the park employees because the sites were larger and it rarely fills up. Manzinetta is nice but tons of small sites, always packed, and more expensive. Craggs was $12/night and had water, bear lockers, and new vault toilets. Bumpass Hell is a neat if you don't mind a moderate hike. The park is definetly worth seeing.

We were there last July .... great campground. At Lake Manzanita, loops A, B & C are for RV and Tents ... D is reserved for Tents only. The campsites are nicely spaced, flush toilet and trees are abundant. Well not as abundant as they used to be. The forest maintenance decided to remove a certain type of tree (some fir tree) because it prevented the growth of the pine tree common to the Forest. I think the camp fee were $16.00 a night.

July and August are best for weather. June can still be cool at night.
