Chester, CA Travel, Photos Information and News

If you have the pleasure (and leisure time) to take a drive, you'll be hard pressed to find more peaceful and feel-good scenery than the scenic highway that takes you to Chester, Calif. Located in Plumas County, Chester sits among woods and forests along the banks of Lake Almanor.

Though the town is fairly small it offers sports enthusiasts and tourist modest hotels, restaurants and a great location near some of the nation's top natural attractions such as Lassen Volcanic National Park 45 miles northwest on CA-36.


The park is named after a volcano which erupted in 1914. Attractions in the park include the incredible  Bumpass Hell, Devil's Kitchen, Sulphur Works, Boiling Springs Lake and Hot Springs Valley. Follow directions and don't veer from paths. A few have actually lost their lives by not heeding the warnings on signs.
