Lassen Volcanic National Park
(The following information is taken from the Lassen Volcanic National Park website; see: HERE)
Lassen Volcanic National Park is located in northern California, approximately three hours northeast of Sacramento. The park is accessed via Hwy 44 (to the north) or Hwy 36 (to the south). Three additional roads dead end at the southeast and northeast corners of the park. The nearest airports are Redding, California; Sacramento, California; and Reno, Nevada. There is no public transportation to the park at this time.
Access to the park in the winter season is limited to the Manzanita Lake area and Kohm Yah-mah-nee Visitor Center due to snow (approximately November through May). Check current road conditions before your visit.
Fuel stations are limited in this remote area; drivers are advised to fill up their vehicles before entering the park. View the map below for locations of gas stations adjacent to the park. Gas is available at the Manzanita Lake camper store 24-hours approximately mid-May through early October (see dates).

Summer Camp Transportation
For 2019 all of our summer camps will run from Sundays to Fridays.
The regular 6-Day Lassen High Country Adventure program (ages 13-18) and the 6-Day Lassen Young Adventurer’s program (ages 11-13) begin at Summit Lake at 1 pm on Sundays and end at 12-1 pm back at Summit Lake (North).
For all summer camps we send out a roster 3-4 weeks before the program to help with the coordination of carpools. Late arrivals (by 5 pm) can be coordinated on most programs based on permitting. Please contact our office to inquire on specific dates.
SUMMER CAMP ADVENTURE SHUTTLE – Sacramento to Lassen Volcanic National Park
The Adventure Shuttle is administered by Sunrise Shuttle. The Adventure Shuttle provides for a Sunday pick up the Sunrise Shuttle Offices at 10 am, Sacramento Airport (SMF) at 10:30 am, and Chico Park and Ride 12-12:30 pm.
