Lassen RV Resort

Lassen RV Resort in McArthur, located in the Northern Sierra Nevada, is a friendly campground in California's Fall River Valley. Pine, oak, and juniper forests stretch between lakes and rivers near our Lassen campground, making this section of northeastern California famous for activities like fly-fishing, golf, hiking, biking, and bird watching.

The resort is located on what is called Lassen Bench, a geological "finger" that protrudes half way up Big Valley Mountain, affording views of all the mountains from Mt. Ashland to the north, past Mt. Shasta to the west to Mt. Lassen to the south. This quiet rural area is located in the intermountain area where three counties meet - Lassen, Shasta and Modoc in the Northern Sierra Nevada range.

The campground is shaded by pine, oaks and juniper trees. All wildlife and birds are free to roam the 68 acres which is left in a natural condition.  Join us for Northern California camping at its very best as you make day trips to see the amazing Burney Falls or to fish in Eagle Lake, Baum Lake, Hat Creek, Fall River or the Pit River.  We offer limited wi-fi at the office area only - this is your chance to disconnect for a true vacation!

At McArthur-Burney Falls Memorial State Park you can watch plumes of water spill down from clefts in the volcanic rock. If fishing is more your style, you'll want to visit the local fly-fishing havens of Hat Creek, Pit River, and the Fall River. Set your rod for rainbow and brown trout, or enjoy the great golf nearby at Fall River Valley Golf and Country Club, a 4.5 star rated course.

Lassen RV Resort is conveniently set off Highway 299, just outside the town of McArthur in a pretty stretch of countryside. It is only minutes from both family and fine dining. We're nearby the town of Fall River Mills, not far from Redding and Red Bluff, California. Within forty-five miles of our park, you'll find attractions like Lassen Volcanic National ParkLava Beds National Monument, Ash Creek Wildlife Area, and Ahjumawi Lava Springs State Park.  Ash Creek Wildlife Reserve, covers more than 14,100 acres. About 3,000 acres are natural wetlands that are fed by the flow of seasonal streams which provides habitat for a variety of wildlife. Through the grassy marshes you can see large, long-legged Sand Hill Cranes, rarely seen in wildlife and Bald Eagles soaring through the clear blue skies. Some of the wildlife viewed in Big Valley includes geese, hawks, mule deer, antelope, quail, sage grouse, owls, and coyotes. See osphrey dive for fish right before your eyes at Baum Lake. Ahjumawi Lava Springs State Park, a place of brilliant aqua bays and tree studded islets that dot the shoreline of Horr Pond and Ja She Creek is accessed by a road in McArthur, but reached only by boat at this time.
