Mill Creek (formerly, Mill Creek Homesite) is a small town in Tehama County, California most noted for its close location to Mount Lassen. It is located at an elevation of 4737'

This remote destination is tucked way back in the woods. North of the Sierra Nevada mountains, near Lassen Peak which is part of a volcanic chain, the Cascade Range that runs north to Canada. The community is nothing more than a string of residential cabins, mountain homes, a idyllic bed & breakfast and a run down 'mountain resort' that features rental cabins (for those who like to camp indoors). Bitching one lane back road, creeks, trails, camp sites and more dirt roads. Get a map, seriously. Several developed campgrounds nearby. After you turn off the main highway, you keep driving deeper into the forest to find the only biz, the Mill Creek general store.

    description:
    Very small community located near Lassen National Park is well off the highway & off the tourist tracks. Tucked way back & surrounded by forests, this is an ideal place for fishing, hiking & relaxing. There is a general store (at the so-called resort) w/ cabin rentals & RV camping.
