This is a FANTASTIC place to stay that is cheap, and only 15 minutes outside of the northwest entrance to Lassen National Park!
I stayed here with a friend in June 2017. We reserved one of the camping cabins. When I arrived, I learned that I had mixed up my reservation dates and had reserved the cabin for yesterday instead of today! The staff said that it was not a problem, and they were glad I showed up (even if a day late)! I apologized profusely, and they were nice enough to not charge me for messing up my reservation (and I would have paid if they asked because it was my fault).
The camping cabin was about $69 per night after tax. The cabin I was in had a queen size bed in one room (with a small sofa), and a full size bed in the other room. The beds come with a fitted sheet on the bed, and a comforter (no other sheet or blanket or pillow). For an additional $10 per bed, they'll put down a full bedspread on each bed (sheet and blanket in addition to the fitted sheet on the bed and the comforter).
My friend and I opted to just bring our sleeping bags and sleep on top of the comforter, which is what the staff had suggested we could do if you don't want to pay $10 extra per bed for a full bedspread. Or you can bring your own sheets and pillow.
The cabins are small, but come with a small refrigerator, microwave, and AC. They were minimal (these are camping cabins, not luxury cabins) but most importantly they were clean. The cabins had power outlets so you can charge your electronics.
The bathrooms are detached from the cabins in a separate building. Each bathroom is its own separate unit with a shower, toilet, and sink. They were very clean and well kept. Bring your own soap, and shampoo. You may want to bring plastic shower slippers to wear since other people will have used that same shower as well. Toilet paper is provided. If you want hot water for the shower, be sure to have quarters on hand because it's $0.50 per three minutes of hot water.
There is space right next to your cabin to park your vehicle, and a small fire pit not far away so that you can cook food over a fire.
Camping areas are fairly close to the cabins.
The cabins and buildings all have very patriotic decor, featuring history and memorabilia from the early years of the United States of America. Each cabin is named after a famous person from American history.
The campgrounds are very quiet. You're far enough away from the main highway that you don't hear cars driving by. The campground was clean and well kept. At night time, the campground is fairly dark so you definitely feel like you're camping.
I did not have cell phone reception at the campgrounds (I have AT&T wireless service).
I would definitely stay here again. If you're looking for a cheap, quaint, and quiet place to camp near Lassen National Park, then this place is for you!
