There are kayak rentals there, but very unofficial. The first park ranger that we asked about it didn’t know what time they started or ended. But when we went out there, there was a dude out there with a few kayaks. Very unofficial. Rates are around $18 for one hour, and $28 for two hours. If you are there for walking the loop, it is an easy hike around the lake. From the parking area, you have to walk to the other side to see Lassen Peak. The view from across the lake at dusk is a nice place to see the sunset, as you can see the reflection of the moon rise above Lassen peak, but there are many bats and mosquitoes on the trail at that time as well.

After driving from Redding up to Lassen Volcanic National Park, this is a nice place to rest and relax. The lake is pretty calm, so gives nice reflections of Mount Lassen if the angle is right. The visitor center was open with Covid restrictions and there is a campground and camp store close by.

This lake is literally at the base of MT lassen. You can swim, canoe, sup board, and fish. The reflection on a calm mourning with a cup of coffee in hand will be a memory you won't forget.

We went here in June '19 as the first stop along the PNW Volcano trail. There was a camping ground near Manzanita that we stayed at and thoroughly enjoyed. There is a easy hike to be taken around the lake as well as trails that break off. Night time was quiet and serene. We even saw two deer walk through our site!
