Entrance fees are not charged to persons under 16 years of age or holders of the America the Beautiful National Parks and Federal Recreational Senior, Access or Military Passes. These passes may be obtained at the parks. Other proposed visitor use fees for recreation use and camping have been developed through comparability studies with surrounding area services and are a part of the new fee schedules.

"We strive to provide visitors with the best possible park experience," said Lassen Volcanic National Park Superintendent Jim Richardson. "The money from camping/entrance fees is used to improve visitor facilities, infrastructure, and visitor services."

Recreation fee dollars at Lassen Volcanic have made possible the reopening of Butte Lake Campground, installation of park-wide wayside exhibits, development of the Lassen Crossroads Information pavilions, installation of campground bear-proof food lockers, restoration of the Lassen Peak Trail, repair of Pacific Crest Trail, horse corral improvements, rehabilitation of the Devastated Area Accessible Interpretive Trail, installation of ADA-compliant audiovisual system at Loomis Museum, provide children's interpretive exhibits in the visitor center, develop Crags Campground youth camp, rehabilitation of three campground amphitheaters, and museum / visitor center exhibits. Additional revenue raised by a fee increase will be used to improve and maintain Kings Creek Falls and Bumpass Hell trails, rehabilitate Warner Valley Campground, and improve campground roadways and restrooms.

The Kohm Yah-mah-nee Visitor Center is open Wednesday through Sunday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. For more information, please visit the park website or contact the park at 530-595-4480 or lavo_information@nps.gov.
