Planning a vacation is stressful, but it doesn't have to be. Before you go into a total meltdown, check out the Manzanita Lake Camping Cabins at Lassen Volcanic National Park in Shingletown, California. The campground has three types of cabins to choose from: one-room cabins that comfortably sleep two ($72 per night), two-room models that sleep six ($97 per night), and bunkhouses that sleep up to eight for $91 a night. ADA accessible cabins are also available for guests who have limited mobility.
Cabins come equipped the basics: beds (bedding not included), a propane heater, battery-operated lantern, a picnic table, a fire ring, and bear-proof storage lockers. Can't figure out what you did with your mess kits and other supplies? The park will loan you a camping kit that includes a stove, cooler, cooking supplies, wood, ice, and even a s'mores kit all for $150 -- what a bargain! Although the cabins have no plumbing, the grounds are convenient to restrooms and coin showers.
Dogs are technically allowed in the campsite, but not on trails or in the cabins, so we recommend that Fido sit this one out. Two-legged campers will have no trouble finding something to do since the area is overflowing with exciting activities including kayaking, hiking, and horseback riding. You can even scale an active volcano -- how does that sound for an adventure? Lassen Volcanic National Park is nicknamed "the Yellowstone of California," and that is a fitting comparison with its geological formations such as the boiling lake, which is caused by fumarole through which hot gas escapes. Don't pass up the chance to explore the Bumpass Hell Trail. This hike will take you through the most prominent hydrothermal area in the park, including "Big Boiler," one of the hottest fumaroles on Earth!
If you're looking for a unique adventure and a cozy place to stay, then the Manzanita Lake Cabins have you covered!
