PG&E Recreational Area Campgrounds

Campground in Lake Almanor Area

A favorite for tents and RVs, Rocky Point Campground is right on the lake, with some sites basically on the beach. For something more remote, try Cool Springs Campground or Ponderosa Flat Campground, both at Butt Reservoir near the lake's south shore, at the end of Prattville Butt Reservoir Rd.

These campgrounds lie within the surrounding Lassen and Plumas National Forests on the lake’s southwest shore. Sites tend to be more tranquil than the RV-centric private campgrounds that are right on the water.
