The park facilities support a variety of activities in all seasons. Recreation opportunities include hiking, backpacking, scenic driving, viewing exhibits and viewing scenery. A great place to begin your visit to Lassen is the Loomis Museum and visitor center, near Manzanita Lake. It is open weekends from late May to mid June and week days from mid June to late September.
The Lassen Park Road runs 29 miles south-north through the park. It is usually open by mid June and remains open through mid
October, weather dependent. There are three access roads into other areas of the park: Butte Lake Road (six miles, gravel), Juniper Lake Road (13 miles, gravel), and the Warner Valley Road (14 miles of paved road, then three miles of gravel). The Warner Valley and Butte Lake roads are usually open June through late October. The Juniper Lake road is usually open early July to late October.
There are eight campgrounds in the park. Group sites are available at Lost Creek and Juniper Lake. Reservations for group campgrounds are required and must be made in advance. All other park campgrounds operate on a first come, first served basis.
