Notice of Pre-Bid Site Visit for Commercial Services at Lassen Volcanic National Park

 Lassen Volcanic National Park issued a prospectus for proposals to operate commercial services within the park on January 22, 2008. Interested parties are welcome to attend a site visit on March 5, 2008 at 8:30am. Please contact Leigh Lisak, Chief of Administration, for reservations and directions at (530) 595-4444 x5140.

The site visit will include tours of the new Visitor Center, which is currently under construction, the Manzanita Lake Camper Store and the planned site for seasonal rental cabins. Travel will take place in snowy areas and will require participants to bring warm clothing and a sack lunch. The park will provide snowshoes, hard hats and safety vests.

View of devastated area from Main Park Road.

The 29 mile Main Park Road was constructed between 1925 and 1931, just 10 years after Lassen Peak erupted. Near Lassen Peak the road reaches 8512 feet, making it the highest road in the Cascade Mountains. It is not unusual for 40 feet of snow to accumulate on the road near Lake Helen.
