The Chester/Lake Almanor Basin is a renowned recreational paradise. The city of Chester, adjacent to Lassen Volcanic National Park, offers a wide variety of lodging some of the closest available to the park- which makes it the perfect choice for a relaxing, cozy “home base” for parkgoers. The Warner Valley portion of the park, including Drakesbad Guest Ranch, is accessible from Chester, and serves as the only overnight accommodations within the Park. This secluded resort offers a serene alpine meadow setting with comfortable cabins & bungalows. Likewise, the resorts of Lake Almanor provide ideal settings for an old-fashioned summer family vacation. The lake is the largest and most popular in Plumas County and affords year-round fishing, several championship golf courses and, in the summer, various water sports activities. Indian Valley, located between Lake Almanor and Quincy, was originally the home of the mountain Maidu Indians and proudly retains its historical heritage.
