Summit Lake Campground can be found in Lassen Volcanic National Park in California for only $22 dollars night. The campground is sectioned off into two separate sites, Summit Lake North and Summit Lake South. In total there are 94 sites available with the North and South sites combined.
Summit Lake South only accommodates for tents or small trailers. RVs are only permitted on the North Campground. When staying at either campground, visitors will have access to the fishing, boating, and swimming that happen daily in Summit Lake.
All sites are equipped with a lockable food storage container, a picnic table and a fire-pit. Due to bears frequently visiting the area, properly storing all of your food (including pet food) is mandatory. Water and electric hook-ups aren't available but there are water spigots and pit toilets throughout the campground. For fires, you're allowed to collect wood from the forest floor.
You're welcome to bring your pooch along for your trip but you're asked to keep them on a leash 6 feet in leash or shorter at all times and to clean up any waste. You are permitted to anchor your dog on your campsite and leave them unattended. Be sure they are always safe because you can be fined if they are unattended and in danger.
The park is only about 8 miles away from Lassen Peak, the largest volcanic peak in the park, giving you the opportunity to hike the trails and enjoy the outdoors. Unfortunately, dogs are not permitted to go with you on any of the trails in Lassen Volcanic National Park as there are hazards that can cause them harm. Primarily, the volcanic soils can cause their feet damage. Dogs are also not allowed to enter bodies of water.
