In May 1915, Mount Lassen exploded with a fury similar to that of Mount St. Helens in 1980. Today, ecologists are studying the Mount Lassen area to see what the future has in store for the devastated terrain of Mount St. Helens. Although Mount Lassen itself is dormant, volcanic activity is evident in the steam vents, mud pots, and boiling springs of Sulphur Works and Bumpass Hell, which you can visit via a combination of short trails and boardwalks. Several small, pretty lakes line the main road through the park. Campgrounds included in this eTrail are: Manzanita Lake, Crags, Lost Creek Group Camp, Summit Lake North, Summit Lake South, Butte Lake, Juniper Lake, and Warner Valley.

It was cold still in March but it was still a nice campsite. I didn't use the bathroom or anything, but it was still a nice area. There wasn't a lot of other campers and it's like any other campsite.
