Located in the heart of northern California’s Shasta Cascade region, Lake Almanor offers classic lake bliss: water sports, family-friendly activities, and a tranquil ambience. It also neighbors one of California’s coolest (and most surprising) spots: Lassen Volcanic National Park, with its bubbling mud pots and steaming vents. While the area is most popular during summer, fall brings incredible autumn leaves and winter offers its own version of serenity, with skiing and snowshoeing. Explore it up close on our scenic Volcanoes to the Sea road trip.
