Beautiful park. Amazing trees. Wide spaces with buffers ( plants ) between spots. Nice swimming pool. Would stay here again. We camped at Mt Lassen / Shingletown KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Previous reviews are spot on. This park is a jewel; long-time owners clearly know how to run a good campground, right down to the way they positively word their signage. While not very large, it's very spacious and each site feels very private. Bathrooms and all grounds immaculate. Great trees, flowers, and other nice natural landscaping. Staff very friendly and helpful. We will surely come back! We camped at Mt Lassen / Shingletown KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Very convenient to Manzanita entrance to Lassen Volcanic NP - enjoy an easy walk around Manzanita Lake or go further in the park and climb the volcanoes - this is a terrific national park, and not overcrowded as so many others are becoming.

We have stayed at many KOA campgrounds across the U.S. and this KOA is by far one of the nicest. The staff was friendly and helpful. The grounds were immaculate and there were lots of activities including tree swings and horseshoes. Great park!! We camped at Mt Lassen / Shingletown KOA in a Travel Trailer.

We spent 3 nights here during the 4th of July weekend while we visited Lassen Volcanic NP. This was a jewel. The campground was clean, site was level, and the owners/staff were outstanding. The cookout and breakfast served for the holiday was excellent and enjoyable. This is our 7th stop during this summer's vacation and so far is our favorite stop. We camped at Mt Lassen / Shingletown KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This was a nice park with a lovely woodsy atmosphere. Staff kept the grounds immaculate (even to the extent of stamping "KOA" in the sand for a cigarette disposal receptacle). We were granted permission to have mail delivered during our stay, and even successfully received a needed part for our RV. We were only able to reserve a site with full hookups for part of our stay, so were forced to move to another site with no sewer partway through the week. The move was not difficult and both gravel sites were fairly level. We enjoyed the pool and can report that the bathroom and shower facilities were convenient and clean. This park does offer recycling. WiFi was pretty good, but our Verizon phones hardly worked at all from this location. We found the staff to be quite friendly and helpful. We would be happy to stay here again. We camped at Mt Lassen / Shingletown KOA in a Motorhome.

Excellent park in beautiful setting. Large pull throughs gravel sites if needed. The website says you must unhook if the rig is over 40 ft. We unhook always, but had plenty of room for two vehicles. Lots of room on the sites that would accommodate larger rigs. They even have the deluxe KOA sites complete with lawn furniture and gas grills. WiFi is free now with good coverage. Staff was first rate and friendly. Nice store and overall facilities were neat, clean and inviting. Will stay here again! We camped at Mt Lassen / Shingletown KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Between an 8 and a 9. Bumped up because they could write the book on how to be friendly, helpful, and flexible. Very nice hands on owners, but all staff get an a plus for customer service. Very pretty, good location for Lassen. What could be improved: offer free Wi-Fi, for $42-46 per night, should NOT cost $10. Lots of dust, maybe a little more paving? Sites were a bit close when it was full. Amazing dog run, but did not use it because our dog came out of it too dirty. Needs something on top of the silty dirt. We would stay here again - enjoyed our visit. We camped at Mt Lassen / Shingletown KOA in a Motorhome.

One of the best KOA's we have stayed in. The sites are large and most of them in the shade. The staff was very friendly and showed us to our site. This campground was very clean and well kept. The location was very good for visiting Mt. Lassen National Park. We would stay here again. We camped at Mt Lassen / Shingletown KOA in a Motorhome.

Nice wide level spaces. Beautiful little park--well run, nice folks. Convenient to Lassen NP. Wi-Fi is Tengonet and overpriced at $10 per day. There is free Wi-Fi at Library 5 miles down the road. No ATT phone service. Laundry could be larger. It is used by guests and staff when changing over cabins. Would stay here again. We camped at Mt Lassen / Shingletown KOA in a Motorhome.

This park is staffed by a group of friendly people. After registering, I was guided to my assigned site. The park is nicely shaded and has an interesting layout. Rather than row after row there are large sites at odd angles which gives a feeling of openness. One drawback with the scattered layout is that people tend to walk or drive through sites The cable selection is basic basic. The fact that several of the major networks dropped out of service during my stay led to my lowering the rating given. The Wi-Fi service is offered on a pay basis through Tengo. Considering the rate that the park charges, one would expect decent Wi-Fi at no cost. I used my Verizon broadband. There was only 1 bar of signal, but I survived. The cell service here was even worse. Many of my calls were dropped at some point in the conversation. We camped at Mt Lassen / Shingletown KOA in a Motorhome.

Beautiful, well maintained campground with lots of big trees. Very friendly staff. All utilities worked. Most sites are a bit tight for a big rig, but not bad. Wi-Fi available for a fee. I was told it was not very good though. Verizon was very weak. Didn’t use it, but the pool was popular. Great launching off point for local hiking and exploring. Don’t miss Burney Falls (about 45 mins away). Would stay here again. We camped at Mt Lassen / Shingletown KOA in a Motorhome.

One of the nicest, most comfortable campgrounds we have been in. Largely due to two factors. One is the setting - beautiful trees and spacious sites. The other is the owner and manager and their spouses. They are the best hosts we have come across. Very friendly, their advice spot - on, and the pride of ownership is reflected in every aspect of the park. Will definitely return to this ideal campground.

Since we were having such great weather, we decided to take our two granddaughters for once last camp-out. Our tent trailer was packed away for the year so we rented a two room cabin and brought our camping gear in the car. The girls had a blast at the campground,and loved the cabin. Even though the pool was closed there were still plenty for them to do at the campground. We took a short road trip to Burney Falls and the Subway Caves. We always drive by this KOA on our way to another campground and thought about stopping. I'm so glad we did. We camped at Mt Lassen / Shingletown KOA in a Campground Cabin.

Stopped here for an overnight without a reservation. The office was closed, but the manager drove up in a golf cart and offered to open the office, look up my KOA Membership number and proceed to check me in. After selecting a campsite, (#33) with full hookups, she led us to the site and assisted with backing in. Great service. As mentioned before the sites are gravel, but there is no dust...except in the K9 Corral. It's dirt...no grass, so the dogs got dirty really fast. Everything worked as expected, and we were very pleased with this campground. The pool was closed for the season, but wouldn't have used it anyway. I agree with previous reviewers that the staff is very, very friendly and accommodating. I'll stay again if in the area. We camped at Mt Lassen / Shingletown KOA in a Motorhome.

This is the cleanest, prettiest, most well run campground we have ever stayed. Not close to shopping or restaurants, close to the National Park. Wi-Fi is $10 a day charge, Verizon barely works here. Do yourself a favor and spend some time here. Gravel site, no dust at all, large fenced dog area, not many tenters, the place looks brand new. Small grocery store in Shingletown has everything including hardware and prices are a little higher than average. We camped at Mt Lassen / Shingletown KOA in a Travel Trailer.
