Clean and convenient
Good spot if you are self sufficient. Free too.
There are fire rings and picnic tables and tons of shade.
We were there on Labor day weekend, and butte lake campground down the road in the National Park Proper was PACKED… but this little spot just a 10 min drive away was almost abandoned. We saw I think two other sites occupied, out of maybe 10 or more. Very spacious, lots of room. The site we got had one table and fire ring, but maybe 6 or seven flat areas for a tent and a parking area big enough for like 5 cars. Tons of space!
Although I would assume that it is unpopular because it wasnt full on a holiday, that may also be because it was 90 degrees that day, maybe people cancelled their plans? It was quite pleasant at night dropping to about 55deg though.
There is a creek, but in the summer when we were there it was a bubbling muddy rut in the ground. Probably amazing in spring.
I would definitely stay here again.
Summit lake is a great place to hang. There are campgrounds on either side of the lake and this one is the more primate of the two - no flush toilets. That said there are some sites right on the lake and an area just for tents- no generators!
Some sites are a bit open - due to elevation tall trees with little underneath - so some sites not real private.
The location is good and you have easy access to both sides of Lassen. Also connected to grat hiking.
This campground is BIG. there are four loops of sites. I am a tent camper so this area can be on the crowded side for me with not enough privacy.
That being said the lake is beautiful. Easy access for kayaks and canoes.
The sites are clean, have table, food locker and fire sit. Bathrooms are flush with showers available. Close by are cabins to rent on the lake and a store, rentals and even gas,
Great jumping off site to get thru Lassen Park. Can take 45 minutes to get to the other side but there is lots of hiking and incredible views. And crazy geo thermal sites such as Bumpass Hell.
Small campground along Hat Creek. Not as crowded as some of the other campgrounds in the area. But great to fish. Across the road is a picnic area and there is good fishing there as well. Other than fishing this is simply a place to relax.
Amenities are minimal. Table, locker, and fire circle. Flush toilets. It is only open seasonally - closed in winter. Can get hot in the summer but there are trees for shade. Some sites are right on the road so best to get there early to be away from road and closer to the creek.
But you can not fish from the bridge!
Definitely a quiet campground. Only one other person was there. Nice creek runs by it. Two vault toilets, one on each side of the loop. Spacious campsites but would probably be challenging for larger tents. No pavement up here so there is only dirt to park on.
