Fee Increase Proposal

Two horses in horse corrals
Fee dollars funded horse corral improvements in 2011.
 
Lassen Volcanic National Park would like your feedback on a proposal to increase entrance and campground fees beginning May 2015. The current park entrance fees have been in place at Lassen Volcanic since 1998 and at Whiskeytown since 1997.

Fee dollars at Lassen Volcanic National Park have made possible the installation of park-wide wayside exhibits, installation of campground bear-proof food lockers in every campsite, installation of ADA-compliant audiovisual system at Loomis Museum, rehabilitation of three campground amphitheaters, as well as other visitor service related projects.The additional revenue raised by a fee increase would be used to improve and maintain Kings Creek Falls and Bumpass Hell Trails, provide children's interpretive exhibits in the visitor center, develop Crags Campground youth camp, and improve campground roadways and restrooms.
