Lake Almanor is surrounded by picturesque mountains covered with pines and cedars with spectacular views of Mt. Lassen and other nearby mountains nestled between the Sierra Nevada Range and the Cascade Range.
Chester is a community of 3,000 at the north end of Lake Almanor. Total year round population of the Lake Almanor Basin is estimated at 9,000 including Westwood and Clear Creek. However, a dramatic increase that ranges from 30,000 to as many as 50,000 due to seasonal residents and vacationers in their cabins, lakefront cabins, luxury homes, RVs, and camp sites. All seem to disappear into the 2 million acres of Plumas National Forest, Lassen National Forest, plus 600,000 acres of Lassen Volcanic National Park.
