When we reserved our site we entered the size of our RV and selected from the sites provided. We chose a pull-through arc shaped site & found that because of the shape and the trees we could not get into it from the proper direction off the one-way road. Had to make a quick trip the wrong way round to pull in. Even that was tight because of the trees and shape of the arc. But it had the advantage of putting our door on the picnic table side rather than the road. There is water in the campground, a dump station, and showers in season. The campground is in the forest and quite lovely and quiet. We camped at Manzanita Lake (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a beautiful campground at the northwest entrance to Lassen Volcanic National Park. The campsites are spaced out fairly well and most are shaded under the pines. Quite a few longer back-in and some pull-through sites to fit a variety of rigs. We stayed in site B48 with our 24' fifth wheel and there was still plenty of room to park our truck alongside. There are also some newer, clean camping cabins that you can stay in if you don't want to do the full-on camping experience. We appreciated how quiet this campground is, as it is not close to any major roads and campers are spaced far enough apart to not make too much noise. They also hand-empty the garbage bins so there isn't the racket of garbage trucks in the morning (something Yosemite is notorious for!). The camp hosts and rangers were also kind and helpful. The highlight of this campground is the gorgeous little lake that is within walking distance. The views of Mount Lassen and the Chaos Crags from the Northwest end of the lake are absolutely breathtaking. We saw a bald eagle flying, fish jumping, and heard many birds singing as we leisurely hiked around the lake. Next time we will bring our kayak and paddle out on it to watch the sunset from the water. Added bonus: a camp store that sells basic camp necessities, tasteful souvenirs, and ice cream! We camp at A LOT of state and national park campgrounds, and Manzanita Lake CG is now one of our new favorites. We will definitely be back! We camped at Manzanita Lake (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Walk or kayak Manzanita Lake at sunset and watch the mountains change from gold to pink to blue as the light fades from the sky. Breathtaking!
