Lassen Peak Skiing & Climbing Regulations

Wilderness Permits are required for overnight camping in Lassen National Park. Permits are available at

Lassen National Park has a few regulations around camping in the wilderness, regarding group sizes, bear practices, fires and pets. Review the rules on their website: Lassen National Park Backcountry Regulations.

Group Size is limited to 10 persons or less. This can reduce physical impacts as well as impacts on the wilderness experiences of others.

Good Sanitation means human fecal waste, food scraps, and garbage will be packed out to the trailhead and properly disposed of at the provided receptacles. Urinate at least 200 feet away from springs, stream, trails and camp locations.

Wood Fires are not permitted. Wood fires scar the landscape. Dead and down wood is crucial to soil regeneration in alpine environments. Portable stoves, which use gas, jellied petroleum, or pressurized liquid, are allowed.

Dogs are allowed in limited areas within the wilderness. A good rule of thumb is that a pet may go anywhere a car may go: roads and road shoulders (not snow-covered), campgrounds, picnic areas, and parking lots. Please pack-out their waste. Know the boundaries!
