Limited areas re-open in Lassen Volcanic National Park amid shutdown


    Lassen Volcanic National Park announced Saturday that certain areas of the park which had been closed due to the government shutdown will re-open beginning Saturday.

    Areas once again open to the public include:

    • Lassen National Park Road (Highway 89) from the junction of Highway 36 to the Kohm Yah-mah-nee Visitor Center on the south side of the park, and from Highway 44 to the Loomis Ranger Station on the north side of the park. However, intermittent road closures should be expected during the winter season due to strong winter storms with heavy snowfall in a mountain environment.
    • All trails in the park are currently covered in snow and are accessible via snowshoes or skis.
    • Southwest campground (snow camping). All other campgrounds remain closed for the winter season.
    • The roads to Butte Lake, Warner Valley, and Juniper Lake remain closed for the winter season.
    Park visitors should check here before planning a trip.
