Lake Almanor

Kids on Lake Almanor dockWelcome to the Lake Almanor area of Plumas County, California. The Lake Almanor Area is best known as a recreation paradise and the eastern gateway to Lassen Volcanic National Park.  It's also the place where the Sierra Nevada range and the Cascade range meet, and is the southern terminus of the Volcanic Legacy Scenic Byway, a 360 mile All American Road featuring volcanic and other scenic attractions.

At 4,500 feet elevation and with 52 miles of forested shoreline, Lake Almanor is the county's largest lake, offering year-round fishing and spectacular views of majestic Lassen Peak.
