Lassen Volcanic National Park 
RV Vacation Idea: 
Lassen Volcanic National Park




Located in northeastern California, amateur geologists as well as professionals will find a wealth of interesting destinations in this national park.  At the southern end of the Cascade Mountain range, Lassen Volcanic National Park holds the distinction of having the largest plug dome volcano in the world, and is one of the few places in the world where all four types of volcano can be found.  The area around Lassen Peak is still active; producing boiling mud pots, stinking fumaroles, and churning hot springs!

Lassen Volcanic National Park began as two separate national monuments that were designated by President Theodore Roosevelt in 1907.  It became a national park in 1916.


The park offers a variety of season based activities, including water sports, birding watching, over 150 miles of hiking trails, photography, and more.  For more information on activities, please visit their page on things to do.


There are campgrounds within the park. Check out their page on camping for seasonal availability and more information.


The closest El Monte RV rental location is in Reno, NV. However, if starting your trip from another location is more convenient, we also have many other rental offices, so please visit our locations map to find a location that may be more suitable.

El Monte RV Cares! Terra Pass Carbon Offset Option

We believe in Green RV'ing!  El Monte RV offers customers a way to offset the carbon emissions from their motorhome vacation by requesting the carbon offset option. This option is completely voluntary and is a very nominal fee.  We encourage you to consider this when booking your trip!


You can request the carbon offset option when you reserve via the call center, or when picking up at the rental counter.  It's easy, affordable, and every cent of this nominal fee goes straight to Terra Pass to fund various carbon-offsetting programs.
