I have loved Lassen, "the one and lonely Park," for decades. We camped at a very convenient RV, cabin and tent resort, just up the road from the Bidwell House, going out of town. Clean, convenient, with hot showers and a short walk for a dip in the Lake. They also have a launch ramp and boat slips. Their store is well organized and well stocked with all the essentials.
We spent one day in the Warner Valley, driving up to Drakesbad. From the entrance to the Warner Valley, we drove up a nearby dirt road to Willow Lake. The lake hosts a number of endangered species of bog plants including carnivorous varieties. Speaking of carnivorous, if you plan to picnic, bring bug spray. You can walk in to the lake with your canoe or other watercraft. There are several campsites, mostly used by fishermen. In the afternoon, we visited the former logging town of Westwood. They have a very interesting small museum.
On our second day we explored the old mining ghost town of Seneca and drove along Butt Lake. I have canoed there in the past. The lake is much larger than I remembered. Both Almanor and Butt Lake are dam controlled.
