Fees & Passes
Managing public lands requires a major financial investment. General tax revenues provide most of that investment for Lassen Volcanic National Park. Entrance fees from those who directly use the park for recreation provide additional support for maintaining park services and facilities. Eighty percent of the fees collected at Lassen are returned to the park for specific projects. Each time you pay a park entrance fee, you are making a direct investment in your park.
Please note that any of the passes can be obtained at the park's two main entrance kiosks. In summer, passes are sold only at the kiosks. In winter, passes can be purchased at the Kohm Yah-mah-nee Visitor Center when the entrance kiosk is closed.
