Lassen National Forest Recreation Sites: What’s Open? What’s Closed?


Lassen National Forest will begin opening recreation sites and campgrounds across the Forest on Wednesday, April 21st. Several developed recreation and group sites will remain closed for the season.

Some developed campgrounds on the LNF accept reservations, with many sites available on a first-come, first-served basis. To serve a recreation site, go to Recreation.gov. Because our group sites are closed for the 2021 season, reservations for group sites will not be accepted.

“Because safety is one of our highest priorities, we ask that our visitors recreate responsibly,” said Chris O’Brien, Acting Forest Supervisor, LNF. “We are looking forward to seeing our recreation sites enjoyed by the people from the communities we serve.”

You can visit Lassen National Forest’s website for a complete list of what is open on the forest.

If you are planning to visit the LNF, please remember to:

  • Be a good steward and recreate responsibly.
  • Avoid crowded areas to maintain social distancing and limit group size.
  • Park only in designated areas. Do not impede emergency access by blocking roadways, fire lanes, or driveways.
  • Follow “Leave No Trace” principles, including “pack it in, pack it out” with your trash, to avoid creating a public health hazard for forest visitors and employees.
  • Follow Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidance on protecting yourself and others from COVID-19.
  • Always drown fires out and make sure they are cold to the touch before leaving the area or going to bed.
