Lassen Volcanic National Park Increases Access

Kevin Sweeney

The health and safety of our visitors, employees, volunteers, and partners continues to be paramount. At Lassen Volcanic National Park, our operational approach will be to examine each facility function and service provided to ensure those operations comply with current public health guidance and will be regularly monitored. We continue to work closely with the NPS Office of Public Health using CDC guidance to ensure public and workspaces are safe and clean for visitors, employees, partners, and volunteers.

While these areas are accessible for visitors to enjoy, a return to full operations will continue to be phased and services may be limited. When recreating, the public should follow California State guidance, practice Leave No Trace principles, avoid crowding, and avoid high-risk outdoor activities.

The CDC has offered guidance to help people recreating in parks and open spaces prevent the spread of infectious diseases. We will continue to monitor all park functions to ensure that visitors adhere to CDC guidance for mitigating risks associated with the transmission of COVID-19 and take any additional steps necessary to protect public health.  

Lassen Volcanic National Park offers virtual content for people who are not traveling at this time. Visit to view webcams, 360-degree photos, videos, and more.

Details and updates on park operations will continue to be posted on our website at and social media channels. Updates about NPS operations will be posted on
