The hike into this place is worth every single footstep. We thought it was more amazing than the mud pots in Yellowstone.

We were only visiting the park on our way to Crater Lake from Chester CA. However it was breathtaking. A wonderful Lodge at the ranger station, full of facts and figures - a small cafe and shop. We drove through the park and took in the scenery, stopping at many places just to drink in the views and take some... More

A beautiful, quiet, clean and congenial camping experience (with the best camp store setup anywhere we've been). This is one of the least visited National Parks. We plan to return at the next opportunity.

We enjoyed the amazing scenery, roads were well maintained, hikes were clearly marked and it wasn't crowded. The people at the visitor's center were especially helpful.

This park has the most beautiful scenery I have seen. Lots of hiking trails to volcanic steam and boiling water. Lake Helen on the road is breath taking! Road is narrow and steep, no guard rails and the speed limit is 35mph for a reason. There is $10 charge to enter the park, but it is good for 7 days.... More

I have hiked to the top of Mount Lassen. It is a wonderful hike with stunning views from the top. After going back down, we then walked through the Bumpass Hell area. Its a volcanic area and interesting area to view. Mount Lassen is in a national park and is less visited than Yosemite, but is as equally intriguing to... More

My husband hates crowds, so Lassen was a wonderful destination for us! We drove the main road through the park and hiked to Bumpass Hell. The trail was gorgeous and not too difficult for a couple in their 50's. We were fortunate to hike on a clear blue day and were rewarded with beautiful vistas! I was pleasantly surprised with...

Start at the south visitor center (turnoff at Route 36), which has full restroom facilities, a nice cafe, gift shop, and most important an excellent informative video about the park and its geological history. There you can buy the auto self-tour guidebook for about $6.50 plus tax. It provides info on the 16 numbered points of interest along the road,... More

Hiked to Bumpass hell and was kinda dissapointed. Not much happening when we were there. We saw the best one on the side of the road up to it. Very pretty place and a very nice ride!

Always alive and little traveled. Drive through is gorgeous, but wild even better. Camp in park sites or backpack into wilderness on one of stunning trails. Hike the 10500 ft Peak. Bumpass He'll or Kings Creek easy beautiful day hikes all ages. Stop often, learn at every step.
