 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.
