North Shore Campground

Cabins, campground in Lake Almanor Area

Two miles east of Chester on Hwy 36, these expansive, forested grounds stretch for a mile along the water, and get filled up with mostly RVs. Ranch-style cabins have kitchens and are great for families. This place is fine if you want to spend all your time water-skiing on the lake, but those seeking the solitude of nature should look elsewhere.
