Manzanita Lake sits under the majestic shadow of Mt. Lassen in Lassen Volcanic National Park. This lake provides the visitor with easy access to prime stillwater fishing just inside the park entrance. Catch-and-release water in the Northwest corner of Lassen Volcanic National Park. Originally a shallow lake formed in volcanic jumbles, later dammed by PG&E to increase storage, resulting in an average depth of 15 ft., max. and 35 ft. near creek inflow. Water may freezes over during some years. Unimproved boat launch, no motorboats. Store, telephone, RV sites and primitive campground.
