The Lake Almanor Basin and surrounding area spread across a natural wonderland created by millions of years of geologic forces, a crossroad where the granite of the Sierra Nevada meets the lava of the Cascades.
Lassen Volcanic National Park
As the Gateway Community to Lassen Volcanic National Park, Chester and the Lake Almanor Basin host the largest and closest selection of lodging and accommodations available for visitors to the Park.
Lassen Volcanic National Park's 106,372 acres provide a wealth of activities that are as varied as the seasons of the park. There are over 150 miles of hiking trails which range in difficulty from a strenuous 5 mile round-trip hike up Lassen Peak to a gentle 1.85 mile stroll around Manzanita Lake.
California's Geologic Wonder
There are eight campgrounds within Lassen Volcanic National Park, and a large part of Lassen's wilderness is available for wilderness camping with a free permit.
The new Kohm Ya-mah-nee Visitor Center, the Mountain Maidu word for "Snow Mountain", is open year round and features an exhibit hall, indoor theater and outdoor amphitheater, bookstore, gift shop and café.
