Recreation is one of the premier opportunities for visitors to the Lassen National Forest. From springtime wildflower hikes to snowmobiling miles of freshly groomed trails in the winter, there is something for everyone! So go explore, camp, hike, kayak, fish, or just sit beneath the towering pines on a sunny afternoon and relax... the Lassen National Forest welcomes you!
Here are some of our favorite places on the Lassen National Forest. We hope that you enjoy them as much as we do! Please note that pets must always be restrained or on a leash while in developed recreation sites, and that pets (except guide dogs) are not allowed in swimming areas.
