Lassen Volcanic National Park will be a cool summer adventure this July 4 week for visitors looking to camp, hike, fish, picnic, kayak, or even play in the snow. Due to the low snow year, the scenic park road opened through the park on June 1 and attractions at all elevations will be open by this Friday, June 29. "This is a great time to bring your family and friends to the mountains where you can enjoy camping, hiking park trails, fishing, picnicking by the lakes, taking scenic drives, and viewing wildlife," stated Park Superintendent Darlene M. Koontz.
