If you want to be immersed in this amazing landscape, then staying in one of the many Lassen National Park camping options is a perfect way to do so. Lodging in nearby towns, like Susanville, are certainly viable options, but there really are campgrounds in every part of the park, making it a much easier place to stay if you want to be able to drive into the park and stay here for days at a time.
The Bumpass Hell Trail in Lassen Volcanic National Park is one of the most popular, family-friendly trails in the park. Traversing alongside a mountain before heading into the forest, the trail enters a fantastic area of geothermal features that is so colorful and active that you simply won’t believe your eyes. It is also the largest hydrothermal area in the park.
