Manzanita Lake at Lassen Volcanic National Park


Just before the north entrance of the park, you will find the non-staffed Lassen Crossroads Information Center with geologic, historic, and cultural information about Lassen National Forest and the Park. About 0.5 mile past the park entrance, stop by the Loomis Museum, and see how B.F. Loomis documented Lassen Peak's most recent eruptions as well as pick up general park information. Lassen Peak itself is a large plug dome that stands at 10,457 ft. and is 27,000 years old. It is named after one of the early Euro-American settlers in the region, Danish immigrant Peter Lassen, who obtained a land grant from the Mexican government in 1844. A large campsite is also located inside the entrance of the park, next to Manzanita Lake.
