               LOCATION  MAP


Lake Almanor West is situated in northeastern California in what Gold Rush era maps described simply as "unexplored territory".  The development is located on the west shore of Lake Almanor, a few miles south of the small  town of Chester in northern Plumas County.  Lassen Volcanic National Park is about twenty five air miles northwest of the development, and provides a majestic landmark.

                           Getting Here


Driving to the Lake Almanor basin from any direction involves two lane mountain highways that offer scenic vistas to compensate for their lower travel speeds.  From the east the area can be reached by Highway 36 out of Susanville.  From the west, the primary routes are Highway 36 from Red Bluff or Highway 32 from Chico (a somewhat slower but even more scenic route).  And from  the south, access is via Highway 89 branching off the spectacular Highway 70 route up the Feather River Canyon.
