          This "remote ranch" in the Forest is an absolute delight for the senses!!! Far removed from the business of everyday life, here is a lodge style restaurant tucked away in a meadow. Menu is fixed, but changes daily. A fish or vegetarian option is available...More

          Does anyone know how far drakesbad is from manzanita lake campground in Lassen? What I'm seeing online today shows 2.5 hours, I'm hoping this is showing some re routes due to snow? When we looked at this drive time once before I don't remember it being that long!
