Last Chance Creek Campground
Last Chance Creek Campground sits on the banks of Last Chance Creek, not far from where it empties into Lake Almanor. The main body of the lake and the town of Chester are about 3½ miles south of the campground. A narrow, bumpy road leads into this secret gem of a campground.
Last Chance Creek makes a good base from which to enjoy all the recreation at Lake Almanor or to make a day trip north into Lassen Volcanic National Park. In the spring white pelicans breed in the nearby lake waters and provide an extraordinary exhibit of beauty.
There are 12 campsites at Last Chance Creek Campground. A 2-night minimum stay is required for those making reservations. The campground is operated by PG&E. Nearby is Last Chance Group Campground. The group campground also accommodates horses.
