Status: Closed through Wed Jul 02 2014 Season Dates
OverviewJuniper Lake Stock Corral (elevation 6,800 ft.) is a remote and rustic facility in the southeastern part of Lassen Volcanic National Park in northern California. It is located within walking distance of Juniper Lake, which is popular for fishing, canoeing, kayaking and swimming. Several trails are located nearby. The facility is over one hour from the main park road.
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 Saint Helens.
The main trailheads for Horseshoe Lake, Snag Lake, and access to the interior of the park are within the facility. The Mount Harkness Trail ascends to a historic fire tower that is still in use. Longer trails will take you to Butte Lake and Summit Lake. The Pacific Crest Trail can also be accessed from Juniper Lake and runs through the park.
The stock corral area has two adjacent metal corrals with water troughs. A vault toilet is located next to the facility for the use of those reserving the corral. This facility is remote and accessed on seven miles of a rough gravel road and six miles of roughly paved road. Drinking water is not available.
The Caribou Wilderness area is managed by the Forest Service and has numerous trails that are suitable for stock use and can be accessed directly from the park via the Widow Lake trail.
