My husband and I have camped for many years at Childs Meadows.At our age we like having complete hook-ups,yet we still enjoy the rustic look and feel of camping.Our grand children feel like Childs Meadows is their second home.

Our Lassen trip was a birthday surprise for my husband so I wanted something a little special. We like rustic more than fancy. The 'cabin' I booked was new and potentially cute but it was parked (literally, it was on wheels) in a bare parking lot. It was so tiny that when the 'trundlebed' was pulled out and made up... More

The room was very clean and appeared to be freshly painted. The carpet was a little spotted given that pets are accepted, nevertheless clean. The surroundings are beautiful in this remote valley just a few miles south-east of Lassen. We had our dogs with us. The Sandhill Cranes were present, but unfortunately they were quiet the one night in August... More

We were keen to visit Lassen Volcanic Park (which was amazing and worth the detour on our holiday) and I booked Childs Meadow because it sounded like a rural idyll. How wrong was I? I should have read the reviews first and had I done so would not have booked this. We were shown to a wooden trailer balanced on... More

Cute resort with motel rooms and cottages. I have stayed in both, and find them to be clean and comforatable. Outstanding location in a valley very near Lassen National Park, complete with nightly serenades by sandhill cranes in the meadow. The restaurant is open for dinner on the weekends, and there is a convenience store useful for forgotten necessities. Relaxed,... More

I've read the other reviews, and have to say they aren't necessarily wrong. But, I was raised in the area, and think some other reviews might be unfair. That being said, Child's Meadow Resort has been around for years, and the accomodations are rustic, but I think it is a great location with fabulous wildlife and expansive views. I stayed... More

We needed a place to stay that was close to Chester and Chico. Child's Meadow was so affordable. It is not a fancy place but it was simple and pleasant. The room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. There was no TV and no phone but my cell phone worked right there. The cafe is so cute and... More

This is the only development in the gorgeous Child's Meadow, and sadly, it's seen better days. The first impression is......what a dump! Rubble piles, junked equipment, cargo containers, and old derelict trailers are scattered ramdomly about. The layout was poorly planned in the first place, and the maintenance has been sorely lacking for many, many years. That said, the insides... More

We arrived at Childs Meadow with high hopes. Their brochure and website show a beautiful meadow with horses and what looks like a stable. We pulled into a parking lot with a store/cafe and A LOT of junky farm equipment- old cars, a huge above ground propane tank, snowmobiles, etc sitting around. We got checked into our "cabin" and found... More

I stayed at the RV section of Childs Meadows Resort. The facilities were on the rustic side, but that was what I was expecting. For the price, $24 a night, I was very satisfied. The cafe was good as well, I ate there for breakfast one day only.
