Lassen National Park was the perfect getaway to celebrate our anniversary and John’s birthday. It’s less than a 3 hour drive and easy to get to right after school on a Friday. We were hoping that Manzanita Lake Campground with it’s 179 sites would provide a wealth of empty sites. It did in C- loop – as there were numerous big school groups in B-loop, A-loop looked full and D is for tents only. we loved our site and had a nice little view of Mt. Lassen! It’s had to just stay two nights and face a work day on Monday – but so worth it.
