Beautiful and secluded, the Last Chance Campground is often less busy than other campsites around Lake Almanor. 

This PG&E campsite is located on the northern most inlet of Lake Almanor and is slightly more remote than the other sites around Lake Almanor. The campground offers spectacular views and easy access to great fishing. 

To get there, head east out of the town of Chester on Highway 36. After crossing the bridge take the first left onto a dirt road. The road is directly across from the entrance to the North Shore Campground. Take this road for roughly four miles until you arrive at the camp. 

These sites are first come first serve. You can get more information on PG&E's website.
