The Lassen National Forest, Almanor Ranger District began the Almanor Toilet Replacement Project at Almanor North and Almanor South campgrounds, July 31. This project ending approximately Aug. 31, will include temporary campground closures at each of the two sites, starting first with Almanor South campground July 31 for approximately two weeks, followed by Almanor North campground for the following two-week period.
Operations will not impact public access to the beach or boat launch; however, visitors are advised to be aware of extra vehicle traffic and heavy equipment in the area for the removal and installation of these new facilities. Proceed with caution as you travel to the lake. Campgrounds will only be closed during the two-week operation at each site and will be available for use before and after work is completed. The nearest open restroom facilities during the duration of this project can be found at the Lake Almanor Boat Launch.
This project has received funding for from the Great American Outdoors Act of 2021, which established the Public Land Legacy Restoration Fund and represents the single largest investment in public lands in U.S. history.
“We are excited to be able to implement this project with funding authorized by the Great American Outdoors Act. The forest has been working to replace these restrooms for several years. These funds allow us to continue upgrades to trails and campgrounds, to provide enjoyment and increased access to many of the public’s favorite places.” said Janie Ackley, Forest Recreation Program Manager.
While these areas are closed and facilities are under construction, please remember to recreate responsibly. Embracing stewardship ethics like Leave No Trace and TREAD Lightly in order to minimize recreational impacts to public lands is key to keeping our outdoor spaces clean and safe for all our visitors. Leave No Trace principle #3 teaches us to dispose of waste properly and leave only footprints.
