Camping with the Stars

Martis Creek Lake

We have two Star Parties at Martis Creek Lake, July 27 and August 31.  Jacqui Zink is holding two camp sites for ASN.  Water faucets and vault restrooms with running water are provided. No electricity is available. A public pay telephone is available. It is located 2.3 miles southeast of Truckee, California, off State Route 267.

Lassen Volcanic National Forest

Half the park is after dark! From animals to plants and water to volcanoes, Lassen Volcanic National Park protects many different natural phenomena. One of the most spectacular is frequently overlooked -- our incredible, dark, night sky. Lassen Volcanic is one of the best places to learn about and enjoy the splendor of the night sky. Far from the light pollution of civilization, Lassen is one of the last sanctuaries of natural darkness. Whether you have yet to experience the grandeur of the Milky Way, or you are a dedicated amateur astronomer, Lassen's dark skies offer unparalleled view of the celestial wonders. Experience Lassen after dark:

·         Attend a Starry Night ranger-led program at various locations throughout the park

·         Join us for Lassen's first Dark Sky Festival, August 10 through 13

·         Pick-up a night sky viewing book or sky chart from the Lassen Association bookstore, and explore the night skies on your own
