Almanor Resorts

Lake Almanor and Chester are a central hub of outdoor summer and winter recreation in NorCal. Snowy Mount Lassen can be seen from Almanor, and it is a popular spot for vacation cabins. Numerous campgrounds and dozens of recreation spots surround the lake. Some spots are busy, while others are vacant. A paved bike path winds thru pine forests along the western shore of the lake, and many dirt back roads leads to primitive camps, creeks and rivers. Most campgrounds are closed during winter months, due to heavy snow.
