Lassen National Park Updates

Lassen Volcanic National Park will begin increasing access on May 29 with the opening of the 30-mile park highway, Butte Lake road, Warner Valley road, and all hiking trails (except Bumpass Hell). Backcountry camping and stock use will also resume on May 29 and requires a free permit.

Manzanita Lake and Southwest Walk-in Campgrounds will open June 1. All other campgrounds will open on their original scheduled dates, which can be viewed at

In conjunction with the increase in access and services, the park will resume collecting entrance fees on May 29.

With public health in mind, the Kohm Yah-mah-nee Visitor Center and Loomis Museum remain closed at this time. Information will be posted outside each facility, however visitors are encouraged to plan ahead by visiting the Plan Your Visit section of the park website and reviewing the Summer Guide. Juniper Lake Road remains closed at the park boundary due to snow.

The health and safety of our visitors, employees, volunteers, and partners continues to be paramount. At Lassen Volcanic National Park, our operational approach will be to examine each facility function and service provided to ensure those operations comply with current public health guidance and will be regularly monitored. We continue to work closely with the NPS Office of Public Health using CDC guidance to ensure public and workspaces are safe and clean for visitors, employees, partners, and volunteers.
