Drakesbad Guest Ranch, also known simply as Drakesbad, is a resort near Chester, California. It is located on Hot Springs Creek at the head of Warner Valley, in Lassen Volcanic National Park.
The original ranch was founded in the 1880s by Edward R. Drake, who sold "Drake's Hot Springs and Ranch" to Alexander Sifford in 1900. The Sifford family would manage the ranch and surrounding environs as a popular hunting and vacation resort until selling the 400 acre property to the National Park Service during the period of 1954-1958.
The resort is at 6,200 feet altitude, features kerosene lamps - although it was electrified in the 1990s - and has no room keys.
It was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 2003.
