Manzanita Lake Camping Cabins

The rustic Manzanita Lake Camping Cabins are located around Manzanita Lake, near the northwest entrance to the Lassen Volcanic National Park and provide convenience, economy, and security. Lassen Volcanic National Park is often described as “California’s Yellowstone,” for its many amazing geological features such as bubbling mud, hissing fumaroles, boiling lakes and unimaginably beautiful colors.  You can hike to the top of an active volcano, tread a cinder cone, visit unworldly places or picnic by serene alpine lakes.

Lassen Volcanic National Park is a place of wonderment, inspiration and recreation. Here, the earth’s internal forces bubble, spit, boil and hiss to the surface in fascinating displays. The striking beauty of this volcanic activity is exciting to watch, and the curious visitor can see all four types of volcanoes (cinder cone, shield, composite and lava dome) in the national park.

The 20 cabins at Manzanita Lake Camping Cabins, some with views of the lake, are the first new accommodations in Lassen Volcanic National Park since 1972, and are available in three models: 2 Room, 1 Room, and Bunk Style. Each cabin includes bed(s), propane heater, lantern, a bear proof box, fire ring, and picnic table. ADA accessible cabins are also available.
