Almanor South Campground to Open June 16th and Almanor North Campground to Open June 24th

The Lassen National Forest, Almanor Ranger District is has announced the scheduled opening dates for the Almanor North and Almanor South Campgrounds. Both campgrounds opened late this year due to extensive winter storm damage on the Forest.

According to LNF Public Affairs Officer Nancy Barrera the Almanor South Campground will reopen beginning Friday, June 16th, and the Almanor North Campground is scheduled to reopen Saturday, June 24th.

In April the Almanor Ranger District closed the popular campgrounds so that more than 300 hazard trees within those sites could be felled and removed.

“As a reminder,” said Barrera, “the threat of hazard trees is not limited to campgrounds. There are thousands of hazard trees in the forest and in remote recreation areas.”

Visitors are advised to exercise judgment when it comes to personal safety. Be aware of your surroundings whether you see posted signs or not, do not camp anywhere near or under trees that appear to be dead or dying.
