BENNER CREEK CAMPGROUND
Established Forest Service Campground
Stone firepits with metal grills
There is also an outhouse
This is kind of a lousy campground...

JUNIPER LAKE
Juniper Lake is in Lassen National Park
We think Juniper Lake is nice
The only problem is most of the time it is snowed in.
June 5th and the snow is several feet deep.


DRAKESBAD / WARNER VALLEY
There is a campground near Drakesbad,
but the road was impassible in a passenger
vehicle.


Firegrill at Unknown Name Campground

UNKNOWN NAME CAMPGROUND
At the junction to Drakesbad on Warner Valley
Road go about a mile and to the right you will see
an outhouse in the trees. This is a campground.
Rivers, streams, springs, and meadows...
Picnic tables, metal firerings, and outhouse.
We only noticed this campground because
somebody had left a paper plate nailed to a
tree.

HIGH BRIDGE CAMPGROUND
Nice... but there is a fee of $14

DOMINGO SPRINGS CAMPGROUND
Nice... but there is a fee of $14

WARNING: If you looked at the road atlas
and plan to drive between Almanor and Stirling City,
forget it... The map shows paved roads, but these are
horrible dirt roads that only 4x4 vehicles could make it.
These roads have never been paved... one of many
errors we have found on American Map Road Atlas.
To be fair, there are more errors on the other major
Road Atlases than American Map Company.
