Tight, tight, tight ! This campground within Lassen National Park is really a tight squeeze for larger rigs ! Interior roads and pads are paved, but they are in poor condition and sometimes unlevel. Sites are fairly close together and sometimes offer little privacy.

Summit Lake North is just like Summit Lake South, each bordering opposite ends of Summit Lake and offering spectacular views from some sites. The southern version of this campground did offer wider roads and much more easily accessible sites, however both parks are limiting to larger rigs. Lassen Peak is visible from some sites here, and perhaps one of the major trailheads inside the park is accessible from both campgrounds. More primitive that Manzanita
Campground located in the western entrance, Summit Lake North is much more central towards the park. Although we enjoyed the lake views and hiking using this camp, We‘re disappointed with the shortage of accessibility with other features from the park. Most of the park’s features are only accessible via a 8+ mile hike (one way ) and backcountry camping is prevalent here. We felt just a little shortchanged by our stay, although the campground itself provided a primitive, scenic setting.
