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. We camped at Hat Creek Resort & RV in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Hat Creek Resort & RV in a Motorhome.

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! We camped at Hat Creek Resort & RV in a Fifth Wheel.

If camping in this area be sure to bring all groceries you'll need. Grocery stores are many miles away and the mini-mart places stock mainly beer.

Resort? Hardly! This campground is in major need of a make-over. The area is pretty with lots of trees and a creek but the whole place is totally run down. The one positive is we had a very helpful man guide us into our spot. The sign to "STOP and check-in at the store" is well past where you need to stop and check in at the store! The sites are very poorly marked. You really don't know what is a site and what is a road, as it is just all dirt and all the sites are just helter skelter. The hook-ups worked OK. The road or exit out was very poorly marked and full of pot holes. The bathrooms were horrible. I doubt they had been cleaned in years although the toilets did flush. This campground is in a good location for visiting Lassen Volcanic Natl Park but I would never stay here again. The volcanic dust gets into everything and everything is gritty. They need to add some gravel, define the sites, pave the sites or at the very least the road, so there isn't a constant cloud of dust. The motel looked very run down. The store was an absolute joke and since the nearest grocery store is almost 30 miles away, it was very disappointing. Cannot recommend this place at all. We camped at Hat Creek Resort & RV in a Fifth Wheel.

Older RV park right on the creek. Several older RV's are used as vacation homes, most pretty run down. All the utilities worked well. Our space was a pull in. Very awkward for a travel trailer but the staff were helpful in getting in. Biggest gripe were the restrooms and showers. Just plain nasty and were that way the whole three days we were here. Park is crowded during the summer and many stroll or even ride bikes right through our camp site. We camped at Hat Creek Resort & RV in a Travel Trailer.

Rustic-type campground with lots of trees. No WiFi or cell service. Our #7 site backed up to Hat Creek. Sites are very large with plenty of space between. Yurts, cabins, and a small motel on-site with a small store and deli inside. Volleyball court, basketball court, great for kids. We were there mid-week. Not crowded. Short drive into Lassen. Cell service 6 miles away. We camped at Hat Creek Resort & RV in a Motorhome.

RV Park has a great setting, lots of trees, Hat Creek runs through the park, good camping experience for kids, as it's not just another concrete-asphalt RV lot. Sites are semi-level dirt and gravel, with picnic tables and fire pits, quiet at night. They have an area for tents, yurts, cabins, and a motel. Small store on site (firewood, worms, food), Post Office, and a deli serving sandwiches. Cable TV and WiFi (accessible near the office) worked good. Staff was helpful and friendly. We camped at Hat Creek Resort & RV in a Fifth Wheel.

Went during the week so park was not crowded. Very quiet. Enjoyed the proximity to the Creek. Didn't fish this time but have in the past. Moderate success. A place to relax and unwind. We camped at Hat Creek Resort & RV in a Travel Trailer.

Unless you come here for fishing only, just keep on going. Poor facilities. All facilities are extremely old and in poor condition. Restrooms have never been upgraded. The wiring is overhead in the trees, there is no recreation room, sites can be difficult to access, sites are all dirt, and 30 amp power only. Resort is not a resort. It is simply a RV park that is not worth the money. Staff is nice but rumor has it that the manager is not here much. We camped at Hat Creek Resort & RV in a Fifth Wheel.

This is an old campground in a beautiful setting, the fishing is great and the staff is very helpful. The campground has all dirt roads and is laid out in an awkward way, making the access difficult. It is like being in a Forest Service campground that is poorly designed but that has full hook-ups. It is a family friendly campground and lots for the kids to do, but it is not a resort. Wash your rig after your stay, not before. We would come again. We camped at Hat Creek Resort & RV in a Motorhome.

I was very happy with my stay at this park. It is not very big-rig friendly since you have to weave in and out between trees on dirt roads to get to your site. The park staff were all very nice and guide people with big rigs into their sites. All of the sites are plenty long and are very wide. They seemed as large as campsites inside the National Parks, but with the added benefit of full hookups, cable and free wifi. All of the sites are in the forest and have fire pits and picnic tables. Most are close to the creek. There is little chance of receiving a satellite signal at this location though. The park seems to struggle with keeping their cable connections working due to the harsh winters. I was only able to watch 2 TV stations of the 15 cable stations listed. If TV is important to you, you may be unhappy. With so much to do and the beautiful forest, it was no problem for me. The park is older and some of the utilities seem to be after thoughts, but the staff seem to do well to keep everyone happy. The free Wi-Fi worked great for 6 of my 7 nights stay. Verizon cell and data services were weak, but worked too. I would recommend making reservations here. I stayed for a week. We camped at Hat Creek Resort & RV in a Motorhome.

This is an over rated and over priced RV Park; it is not a Resort. Sites are very had to get into for Big Rigs; 30 amp service is marginal; electric lines are hung from tree to tree; sewer drains slowly and we had an unsanitary connection; just pushed sewer hose into pipe and tied it with a string provided by the park. Roads are very dusty and poorly maintained. The only thing going for this park is "Hat Creek" which was pretty and trout fishing appeared to be good, I did not fish. No AT&T cell phone service and Wi-Fi didn't work on my site. We camped at Hat Creek Resort & RV in a Motorhome.

Rate shown is a standard back-in site with Good Sam discount. Fantastic campground for families and kids. Rustic setting with lots of shade trees, the creek runs right through the campground, quiet at night. Sites are semi-level dirt, with picnic tables and fire pits. Bring your own firewood as it is expensive in the store. Full hookups with cable TV. The Wi-Fi is free but only accessible near the office. Restroom and showers were old, but cleaned daily, and since there are only two restrooms they have porta-toilets at various locations. There are separate areas for tents, yurts, cabins, and a motel. Small store on site, Post Office, and a deli serving sandwiches. New basketball and volleyball courts. The Hat Creek is stocked with Brook and Rainbow trout frequently during the summer months. Some good day-trips to see when you're not fishing, Crystal Lake fish hatchery; Mt. Lassen NP visitor center and one-mile loop trail; and McArthur-Burney State Park. We camped at Hat Creek Resort & RV in a Fifth Wheel.

This was great for my family of 5, including kids (ages 2-10) because we wanted a natural camping environment (no TV, pool, etc.) and the kids caught their first stream trout. Yes, we started fishing just after the Tuesday morning stock. Creekside hookups were easy for us first-timers and the staff was very helpful. Store is well-stocked. Would stay here again.

This park has it all! Great staff, large level sites, easy set up along with a great location. Kids were catching lots of fish right in the creek on the campground. Has a well stocked store. Only regret is that we could only stay one day, would stay again. We camped at Hat Creek Resort & RV in a Fifth Wheel.
