Hat Creek Hereford Ranch Campground and RV Park is the Crown Jewel of the area and only seven miles from launch! It has huge shade trees, great camp sites (some grass!), hot showers, fishing, swimming, games, children's playground, washers and dryers, small store, wonderful hosts, and it's just down the road from Fireside Village. All of this comfort for a reasonable price. If you hope to find an available camp spot during any of the major summer holidays (Memorial Day, Fourth of July or Labor Day), call 530-335-7171 or visit their web site weeks in advance. Other than the major holidays, securing a nice camp spot should be easy, but calling in advance is still your best bet.

Many pilots use sites 75 thru 80, they are mostly grass. Site 59, 60 & 62 are outstanding sites too and right near the small lake. See campground map.

Outdoor Safety Tips
Camping on the Lassen is not limited to developed campgrounds. Almost all of the forest is open to those who prefer the quiet and solitude of a completely undeveloped setting - just you, your campfire, and the stars. But remember fire permits are required outside of developed campgrounds on all California National Forest System Lands. Permits are free, and can be obtained at any Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, or California Dept. of Forestry and Fire Protection Office. Dry California summers sometimes bring high fire danger and special . Regulations governing fire restrictions are specific to each National Forest and change with weather conditions and the seasons. Before each visit please check with the Forest you plan to visit for current fire restrictions. For current fire conditions in the Lassen National Forest, go here.
