Warner Valley Campground is hidden away 17 miles north of Chester in Lassen National Park. Views of Lassen Peak along the way make it a pretty drive. The rough entry road, however, is unsuitable for RVs or trailers. The campground is in the south-central part of the park. Visitors to the Warner Valley enjoy hiking through meadows and exploring hydrothermals such as 125 degree Boiling Springs Lake.
Warner Valley Campground makes a good stopping place for those hiking the Pacific Crest Trail and for anglers interested in trying their luck in the creek, but it has little to make it stand out as destination in itself. Nevertheless, it has picnic tables, fire pits, and bear boxes - enough to satisfy weary hikers on the Pacific Crest Trail.
