Lake Almanor Camping

Lake Almanor is owned by the Pacific Gas and Electric Company. They maintain many of the campgrounds inthe area. Forest Service campgrounds are also available at the lake as well as some private campgrounds.

A good number of resorts at Lake Almanor offer both RV and camping sites as well as cabin rentals. You will find many of those resorts listed both here as camping sites and again on our Lake Almanor Lodging page.

Several Picnic and Beach areas are located on the lakeshore along with a Scenic Overlook at the south end of the lake with views across the Lake Almanor and of Mount Lassen in the distance. The Lake Almanor Recreation Trail connects many of the campgrounds.
