10 Parks near Hat Creek, California
Aug 2016 - $37.00
Really nice campground near Lassen National Park and Burney Falls. Large sites are laid out to give campers plenty of room. The park has a large pond on the premises. There are several hiking/atv/Jeep trails adjacent to the park. The managment/staff are friendly and helpful. The grounds are well maintained. In a word--peaceful! There is a small store, gift shop and restaurant onsite. - yblaw

Nice park about 20 miles from Lassen Volcanos NP. Easy check in but roads and spaces could be marked better. Our space was a pull thru that was fairly level with full hook ups, fire ring and picnic table. No Verizon phone service and wireless was unusable. Good for a night or two but not a destination. Would stay here again. - Budapest

Nice park nestled in the pines. Courteous hosts at check in which is also a decent little store for basic re-supply as well as a small restaurant and ice cream parlor. Paved main entry then gravel sites. We were away from the pond which turned out to be a good thing as there were swarms of bugs in that area; didn't seem to bother the families that were in the sites surrounding that area. Good electric, water and dump. Trash dumpster looked as if an animal had picked its way through and tossed what it didn't want; my spouse cleaned it up when taking out our trash but we noticed it just as messy upon our exit so perhaps the offender was still inside? (don't tell my wife!) Will return if we are in the area. - pyrthkr

We enjoyed our stay here. We used this campground as a stop on our way to Oregon. Easy access for fifth wheels, dump station available,and easy to get to. Fairly level grass pull thru sites with very nice rural views of ranch lands. Big beautiful trees.
Went swimming in the pond, and it was very refreshing! There are lots of frogs, but we like frogs. - Centralcoaster

This is a family park. It's a great place for kids. We liked it better however during the week when the kids were gone and it was so very quiet except for the cows. The good - We had an easy access site for our big motorhome. Utilities worked well. We had great WiFi (but we were next to the office). The AT&T cell phone "booster" helped when you stood right next to it. Otherwise, don't expect any cell service. The fishing was GREAT. We caught our fish in a little over an hour and they were HUGE! Not exactly a challenge, but it was fun to finally land some fish and again, ,they were bigger than I've ever caught before (we caught one that was nearly 4 lbs). We didn't really use the bathrooms, but they seemed clean although are dated. Our satellite dish worked well in spite of all the trees. - KampingKris

Very family friendly. We stayed over holiday weekend so very crowded, and some campers were not good about keeping their dogs on leash, but camp hosts talked to them about it. Some sites are VERY close together-we couldn't use our awning because our neighbors were using theirs, but it did shade our doorway as well. We found sites we like for next visit - 17, 58, 94, 13. - vanvfam

This campground is not for big rigs - 30' maximum. There are flush toilets and water spigots. It is next to a busy highway and many logging trucks and other semis pass the road. There is a dump station a couple miles away at the national forest visitor center. The only plus is the pleasant-looking Hat Creek which runs through the park. - nbi600

We stayed here for 5 nights in a group spot with friends. It is dry camping, although they do have spigots, for water and pit toilets around the campground. There is a creek that we fished in and had a good time. You are in a forest, and there is trees, so if you're looking to get a signal for Dish or Direct TV.....good luck!! Anyway, I would most definitely stay here again as you are kind of centralized to the Volcanoes, Burney Falls, the volcanic caves, and Lake Britian. - mike3245

This is a nice Forest Service campground spread out along Hat Creek. The sites are large and can accommodate small to medium size rigs. There is at least one restroom with flush toilets and there are pit toilets as well. Water is available in the campground but not at individual sites. There is no dump station. We liked this campground because it was clean, quiet and picturesque. There is a small general store at Old Station, one mile away, and I believe there is also a cafe and gas station there too. The trail head for the Spatter Cones Nature Trail is across the road from the campground. We'd stay here again. - BruceandKathyWA

I stayed here one night. No amenities. Good for fishing Hat Creek as it flows through the campground. Only has pit toilets and a water faucet. A campground Host was on site and was helpful with local sites to see. Close to Hwy-44 so some noise. If you like to rough it, this is your spot. - zigzag

We have been traveling for 6 weeks and this is the worst place we stayed. The park layout is crazy! You can barely tell if you're in a campsite or on a road even with a campground map in your hand. I expect some dirt, we are camping after all, but the dirt here was beyond bad. They definitely need to lay down some gravel or plant some grass and define their roads better! There are power line hanging from trees held up by ropes, not too safe. On a positive note the people were friendly and did give us a refund when we left a day early. I do not recommend this place even though it's the closest to Lassen Nat'l Park. - karenwerf

Resort? What a joke. Everything the previous two reviewers said was accurate except for the utilities. Our 30-amp power was erratic and so low we had to turn off the AC to run anything else. Our pull-thru was a pull-in/back-out because of the trees. Roads and sites are in desperate need of something to keep the dust down. (Days later our sinuses still haven't recovered.) No place to walk dog that wasn't covered in dust so she tracked it onto the furniture and our feet and shoes were filthy. Wifi didn't work anywhere, even at office. Verizon hotspot didn't work. No cell service but enough to text with. Satellite TV didn't work and park employee couldn't fix it. Sewer hook-up was awful....a 2-foot tube sticking up in air which had to be dismantled in order to dump, then reassembled to leave as it was. Campfires all over the place while Forest Service fire hazard rating was EXTREME. Made us very nervous, especially with no phone. We had to pay for all 3 days months ago when making reservations, probably because they're afraid of cancellations if more accurate reviews are read later. Would NEVER stay here again! - all4pets

When we first arrived we were pretty pleased - there were plenty of trees! However it quickly devolved from there. The roads inside the park were very confusing and not marked in the slightest. There were so many trees so close together that getting anywhere was a little difficult. The first spot we were directed to was so narrow our smaller, 22 foot long, maybe 12 foot wide, RV barely fit. We had to fold both sets of mirrors in and it was still close. It was just unacceptable, you couldn't have space enough to put out the sewer hose (the connection, which was in the ground at a really bad angle, was hard to find!) [spot 35]
They moved us to another spot (#38) that was better. Although still very confusing to get in and out of. The sewer hookup here was also at a weird angle, instead of pointing down to let gravity work, it was parallel to the ground and had no method to make the liquid drain into the connection, when you unhooked it spilled onto the ground.
The bathrooms were atrocious. They were very dirty at multiple points in a day, they were grimy and dark. Honestly felt like I'd come out dirtier than I went in if I showered there. There weren't many stalls for both toilet and shower for the sheer number of people in the park.
They offered wifi, and while they said it was accessible everywhere, it wasn't. You couldn't even connect next to the office. It was a joke, pure and simple. - NewYorkCountryGirl

Small park, mostly full-timers and rigs used as "cabins". Only three overnighter spots when we were there. Very quiet park & residents except for one truck starting up in morning. Concrete patio with picnic table. No campfires. No WiFi or cell service. - PasoTravelSmiths
May 2015 - $27.00
Level, back-in site, gravel and ours had a concrete pad with picnic table and shade. WiFi worked great. No antenna TV reception or cable, most folks had satellite. 30-amp electric, water and sewer. Quite a few full time residents, no problems and quiet at night. Restroom and shower were old, but worked fine and were clean. Only a mile away from McArthur-Burney Falls State Park. Owners are friendly. Good location and value for the price. - zigzag

I love parks in the mountains/forest and this was all that. Our "backyard" was miles of forest. WiFi worked fine for us, no TV but very clear view for satellite dish, very friendly. My RV combination is 55 ft long and we fit in a back-in site. I would stay here for a week or two for sure...quiet and peaceful. When coming from Shasta don't take the first Clark Creek road, take the second one. - forreal

Campground is spacious. We thought it might be noisy as some sites had large families, but they were all very quiet. There is an $8 transaction fee. Park has a lake and beach and we didn't use it but will next time. The falls are spectacular. Our site was level. All sites had picnic table and fire ring. Lots of cabins. The store was nice. The visitor center was open limited hours (11-3) and had Wi-Fi while open. No cell signal. We drove to Burney for Verizon 4G, 10 miles, where we also found Safeway. Trails are limited due to park size but we enjoyed them. - bdornbush

Nice, well kept park with lots of shade but no hookups. - Go often

Nice wooded campground. Lots of tall trees. We had no trouble with paved interior roads in a 30ft travel trailer, using care. Sites not too unlevel. No sewer, no electricity, water spigots randomly in the area. No Verizon cell signal. Flush toilet restrooms with pay showers. Each site has picnic table and fire ring. Generators OK after 10am. Nice general store. Nice waterfalls, and lake with fishing, boat rentals and swimming. Our friends were in a cabin, hard mattresses, built in bunk beds, no furniture, no electricity or water. - trussman

The cabin itself was spotless, in a heavily wooded area. Nice camper store, fully stocked and gifts too. Pay showers were disgusting, half of them were out of service. Right next to the lake. Worth staying here. It was noisy though, apparently there is no noise enforcement. People yelling at the top of their lungs till past dark. - MeetTheGriswolds

We stayed in the A loop, with reservations. Site was nice, not too close to neighbors. Shaded; good for heat, bad for solar. We enjoyed our 3 nights. Facilities were OK, flush toilets but nothing else. There are showers at the camp store within walking distance. Store also has typical groceries and food, and a snack bar and souvenirs, and gasoline. It is near Manzanita lake with fishing and boating (no motors). - bdornbush

We stayed in late September during the week, so it was pretty empty and very quiet. They start closing things up around the park at this time though. I think all the other campgrounds in the park were already closed. The campground roads looked newly paved. We had a long pull-through site. We love the beauty and fresh air of national parks. Lake Manzanita is just beautiful. This campground is a great base for exploring Lassen Volcanic National Park which is just amazing. We stayed three nights. There are no hookups, but they have a dump station ($5) where you can also fill your fresh water tank. There is no cell phone reception at the campgrounds, but if you drive one mile up the main highway (highway 89) to point of interest #14 (Chaos Jumbles I believe), there is decent 4G reception. Also beware of the squirrels and chipmunks. They somehow got into our minivan and shredded some paper towels. We later found that they had stashed a bunch of pine nuts in the compartment where the third row seats are stowed. The camp host said they also steal the insulation from the engine compartment to use for their bedding. - Super Symmetry

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at the Lassen RV Resort during the first week of October, 2016. The sites were huge (especially the pull-through ones) and, with only 6 of the 44 sites being occupied due to it being off-season, it felt like we practically had the park to ourselves. The park is not on a main road, so it was very quiet and the stargazing at night was amazing. The owner is a personable and fantastic host. He escorted us to our site to make sure it was to our liking, and stayed to ensure hookups were uneventful before leaving us to settle in.
The only drawback to this place is there is no Wifi except at the pool (which was closed for the season) and office. Cell signal was spotty at best - I had zero Sprint service, and my husband's T-Mobile was intermittent and weak.
However, if you are looking to disconnect and relax, then this is the place for you. We will certainly be back. - Spun69

This is a very nice, immaculately kept, campground. The sites are huge, level, and extremely private. The roads and sites are all freshly graded. It's totally quiet and peaceful. However we had very erratic Verizon cell service and wifi, which is probably to be expected in such a remote location. The owner was exceptionally nice and helpful. - Dapper

Came with about 30 Airstreams for a club rally. This is one of the best parks I've ever been to with or without the club.
My campsite has to be at least 12,000 sq. ft. with 180 degree view from the front door of nothing but trees, and open space. Quiet as a tomb, dark as a dungeon at night. Fantastic place to watch the stars at night.
The camp ground is perfect when it comes to modern amenities, all the picnic tables are solid, straight and look new. The utilities are perfect.
There's a beautiful swimming pool, great club house and the hosts do everything and then some to make your stay enjoyable. - xo1rider

Beautiful campground, private bear boxes which is a plus. Didn't think we needed it though as there are so many campers here but it makes it convenient to store your stuff. Campsites reasonably spaced out. Quiet campground right next to a small lake/big pond. They call all pools of water lakes here no matter how small. - MeetTheGriswolds
Jul 2014 - $18.00
Pros: You are next to a beautiful lake, lots of shade, clean bathrooms (note, they don't have lights, bring a flashlight), fire pits and bear lockers, water, lots of trash receptables, nice central park location, our site (B3) was one of the most flat sites, hiking paths right next to campground, campfire program every other night. Cons: Lots of day use brings extra people, lots of sites were not flat, can only reserve B loop, no store (have to buy wood elsewhere) Would stay here again, but also want to try Manzanita or Butte Lakes next time. - chit_chat
