Fishing trip to Baum Lake

Stayed overnight here during a fishing trip to Baum Lake. The campground was almost empty. Unfortunately, the only other campsite was full of Jackwagons with no regard for other folks. But, their shenanigans did not ruin my trip. The sites are very nice. Level and well maintained. Plenty of trees for shade or hammocking. 5 minute drive to the lake. Super convenient. Camp host was a nice guy who gave me the heads up to pick a site as far as possible from the noisy guests. I'd stay here again.

Hike and bike trip

Stayed here on a short hike and bike trip. Great park. Nice showers near the hike and bike. Lots of hikes nearby as well as a lodge with a store and restaurant.

Hike and bike sites are awesome

Stayed here on a short bike camping trip. The hike and bike sites are the best in the place in my opinion. Only negative is that there is no water. You can buy a one gallon jug for 5 bucks. Firewood cost 12 bucks. Looks out over the ocean. Beautiful.

Good and bad

This was my third visit to the park. It’s in a very picturesque location. Close to downtown but you feel secluded at the same time. My only real complaint is that the bathroom is very small and not very clean.

Close to the visitor center.

Large busy campground. Facilities are nice and clean. Walking distance to the visitor center. Close to many of the more popular attractions in this part of the park.

Quiet spot

Quiet campground on the west side of the park. Only a few campers here at the time of the year. Close to the kilns. Was a good spot to stage to explore this part of the park.

First to Review
Gets the job done

Stayed here for a single night in late November. Had the whole place to myself. Good place to overnight en route to Death Valley. Walking distance to town. Has water and vault toilets. Plenty of open territory surrounding it. Nice view of the mountain range.

Pleasant campground

Stayed here on the last day of a trip to Yosemite. Campsites were nice and clean. A bit close but that seems to be the norm. Quiet campground and close to the park entrance. Would stay here again.

Crane flat not flat

Campground was just OK. Not much flat ground here. Quiet though.

Heat wave at Burney Falls

Stayed here on the second day of a bicycle trip. Stayed in the hiker biker site which was only $5.00. Nice! However they stick you back in the woods away from the main sites. It closest to Highway 89. Lots of truck traffic all night and a walk to the bathrooms and water. On a good note, the campground has a nice shaded area where you charge phones etc, a camp store and cheap showers. It was super hot but if you walk down to the bottom of the falls it's like a natural air conditioner.

Lassen Volcanic National Park- Manzanita Lake

Visited this campground on a bicycle trip. Very clean and orderly as you would expect from an NPS campground. Not terribly crowded. It was however a Monday. Reasonably well stocked camp store open until 8. Could hear lots of noise from the young kids in the group campsites but they shut down before 9. No hiker/biker sites which is a bummer. Regular fee is $ 24.00. Enjoyed my stay!
