          We love Lassen National Park - great hiking, wonderful views, waterfalls, thermal features (geysers, etc.), and it's never crowded. However, lodging is almost non-existent, which makes Drakesbad a really special place in the park. We spent 4 days there recently and really enjoyed it, but...More
