Overview

Almanor Campground is a large family-friendly facility for individuals and large groups alike. It provides direct access to beautiful Lake Almanor and a variety of recreational opportunities in the area.

Natural Features:

The campground sits on the west shore of Lake Almanor at an elevation of 4,540 feet. A scenic mixed conifer forest covers the area. Parts of the campground are shaded, while other sections have grassy meadows that often contain wildflowers.

The 28,000-acre lake provides ample boating, swimming, water skiing and sailing opportunities. A boat ramp can be found in the north campground. The adjacent beach is mostly rocky, but contains some sand.

Fishing in the lake or nearby streams, is a popular activity. Anglers will find a variety of trout, bass, salmon and catfish, among other species.

The Lake Almanor Recreation Trail can be accessed from within the campground. The trail winds through the forest, providing spectacular views of the lake, nearby Dyer Mountain and Lassen Peak. The trail stretches approximately 9 miles along the west shore of the lake. It is a non-motorized trail, open to all non-motorized activity.
