OverviewManzanita Lake Camping Cabins offer convenience and comfort in a scenic setting of the Lassen Volcanic National Park. They are within walking distance of Manzanita Lake, a popular fishing and family destination, and offer a view of 10,457-foot Lassen Peak, the largest volcano in the park.
The cabins are located one mile south of the park entrance, perched at an elevation of 5,890 feet and adjacent to a 179-site campground. The Loomis Museum, Loomis Ranger Station and popular hiking trails are nearby. Educational programs are presented at the museum and amphitheater within the campground.
The national park is known for its volcanic history, as well as its diversity of plants and animals. It contains 300 active volcanic domes and many hydrothermal features, such as mud pots and steam vents. Lassen Peak is the southernmost active volcano in the Cascades, and the second most recent volcano to erupt in the lower-48 of the United States before Mount St. Helens.
Manzanita Lake is popular with fly fishermen for its trout, however, the area does maintain a catch-and-release policy and requires the use of artificial lures and single barb-less hooks only. Non-motorized boating is permitted and kayak rentals are nearby.
There are a variety of cabin types available, including a one-room cabin that sleeps two, a two-room cabin that sleeps six, and a one-room bunkhouse that sleeps up to eight people.
The Loomis Museum is at the north end of the park and the Kohm Yah-mah-nee Visitor Center is at the south end of the park. Both offer information, photos and videos of some of the most popular hikes in the park, along with a movie about the history of Lassen Peak eruptions.
