Lassen Volcanic National Park – Fire Update 8/20/21

from Lassen Volcanic National Park
As with most national parks, there are multiple special spots that visitors really care about and Bumpass Hell is one of them.
Thus far, this visitor favorite spot has survived the Dixie Fire. And the recently reconstructed boardwalk is still intact. This area is a unique and special area that features geothermal fumaroles, mud pots, and steam vents.
While many areas of the park will be impacted by the fire, there will be a spectrum of burn severity that will range from extreme to low impact. Bumpass Hell is an area that demonstrates a lesser impact.
As of today, the Dixie Fire has burned 44,858 acres of land within Lassen Volcanic National Park. The fire has been burning in the park since August 4, 2021.
