When's the best time to visit Lassen National Park?
I’ve lived in California for over a decade, but I just learned about Lassen National Park. I had no idea that active volcanoes existed in California, so I want to make the trip. What’s the best time to visit Lassen National Park?

California has almost every landscape and geographic feature known to man, so you shouldn’t be that surprised that Lassen National Park still has active volcanoes. The best time to visit Lassen National Park is in summer, as most of the park’s roads are closed between October and May.
From late May through September, you can experience everything the park has to offer without copious amounts of snow or rain. Here are some of the best things to do in the park:
- Take a stroll on the Bumpass Hell Trail to see some of the park’s geothermal pools and steam vents.
- Go kayaking at Manzanita Lake.
- If you want to learn more about the history of the park, go to the Loomis Museum.
- Drive the 28-mile Lassen Park Highway for breathtaking views of the park.
