The Lake Almanor Basin and surrounding Lassen National Volcanic Forest 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.
Enjoy hours of pleasure on Lake Almanor with its 52 miles of shoreline, in Lassen Volcanic National Park which boasts the southernmost volcano in the Cascade range and in the 1.2 million acres that make up the Lassen National Forest and Caribou Wilderness area with over 300 campsites. This is a playground for all seasons, for all ages and any lifestyle. 
The Basin and surrounding area offer world class fishing in lakes and streams, family fun on skis, wakeboards, tubes and jet skis, quiet mountain adventures in camping, hiking, biking, kayaking, horseback riding, birdwatching and championship golf.
