We spent two nights here and really enjoyed this campground. The campground wasn't very crowded, although there were lots of reserved sites for campers who were being displaced by the fires in the area. There are four loops, A, B, C, and D, which is for tents only. We chose site B46, which was a pull-through, because it was fairly easy to level. Many of the sites would require significant leveling. The biggest drawback was the dust...it's basically dirt camping except for the pad. This is the kind of dirt/dust that sticks to everything, so the dogs required a lot of clean-up before being allowed back into the RV. Neither AT&T nor Verizon worked in our site, but they were usable near the store. Nice walk around the lake. Nice campground host. I'd like to come back in the spring when there might be a bit of grass in the campsites. We camped here in a Motorhome.

At store, before entering camp loops, the camp road is not visible ahead. I found signs confusing, especially having a big rig. The sign at the store has a right turn to Manzanita Lake and cabins, but no sign to camp at that point. The camp sign is back several feet, and does not indicate where to go, which is straight up past the store. The pull-through sites are limited with big-rigs. I backed into pull-through site 45B, because the trees made a tight curve in the middle of the site. My RV is 10' high, and there was a dead branch scratching my solar panels. The pull-through sites have issues with branches, low hanging limbs, trees making the curve tight. Don't go by the length alone, because many sites are long. Threaded spigots throughout camp. Camp road and site pads are paved. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

We camped here for 3 nights in late August. Beautiful campground with lots of trees, fire rings, friendly and helpful staff. Our kids rode their bikes on and on. Restrooms and showers were clean. The showers are a bit tricky: you pay 4 quarters and a 3 minutes shower, and on occasion the hot water started only about 2 minutes or later. So make sure to bring extra quarters. No hookups. Water needs to be taken from fountains spread throughout the camp. All in all: highly recommended for people wanting to explore this amazing park and who don't mind roughing it. Don't miss renting a kayak on the lake, enjoying amazing views of Lassen Peak. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
