Lassen Volcanic National Park entrance fees will be waived on Saturday, September 28 for the 20th annual National Public Lands Day.  Opportunities to explore the unique volcanic landscapes, enjoy the mountain scenery, camp, hike, attend a ranger program or the Art and Wine of Lassen event are just some of the outdoor experiences that await visitors. 
 
“Fall season is a beautiful time to visit Lassen Volcanic National Park with the cool, clear nights and warm days,” stated Park Superintendent Darlene M. Koontz.

Park concessioner, California Guest Services, will host Art and Wine of Lassen September 28 at the Kohm Yah-mah-nee Visitor Center from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.  This event will feature local wine tasting ($6 for tasting and commemorative wine glass), hors d’oeuvres, art exhibits with demonstrations and live music.

Ranger-led programs will be offered Saturday and Sunday at Sulphur Works at 11:00 a.m. and at Kohm Yah-mah-nee Visitor Center at 3:30 p.m.  A Junior Ranger program will be offered at the visitor center on Saturday at 2:00 p.m.

For visitors planning to camp, there are several campgrounds that remain open with some changing to dry camping.  Dry camping means there is no potable water for human consumption and only vault toilets are available.  Warner Valley, Butte Lake and Summit Lake South Campgrounds are currently dry camping until October 29.  Manzanita Lake Loops C and D close on October 1; dry camping is available from October 15 until snow closure.  The Southwest Campground (walk-in) is open year-round with water and restrooms available at the visitor center after October 15. Juniper Lake Campground will close on October 15.  Summit Lake North, Crags, Lost Creek and stock corrals are now closed for the season.

The National Park Service will also waive entrance fees from November 9-11in commemoration of Veterans Day. For a full list of fee free days, go to http://www.nps.gov/findapark/feefreeparks.htm.
