lodginglodging reservations in Lake Almanor

Lake Almanor is all about boating. Lassen Peak, often snow-capped year round, can be seen from the shores of Lake Almanor - which is just south of Chester, CA. Great river fishing all around this region. Good lake fishing too. Hike, bike, camp, fish, kayak, snowmobile. A top pick for lake recreation paradise in NorCal.
