A National Forest CG operated by Lassen College. Beautiful setting, wide spaces among tall pines, lots of room between sites. We arrived on holiday weekend and got one of the non-reserved spots. Reserved places were all taken. Called before driving up, and host was most helpful. - User3119

This is a very nice Forest Service campground. The sites are very spacious and generally flat. We had to put our MH on a few blocks, but no more than we've done before.
Each site has a paved parking pad, a good, solid picnic table and a fire ring. During our 4 days there we saw the hosts checking out the empty sites and cleaning the fire rings, so everything stayed clean.
There are plenty of bathrooms and garbage containers: one at each end of each loop. The bathrooms have flush toilets and sinks, but no showers. They were cleaned daily.
The campground is very dog friendly, although they do not supply poop bags. Mostly people seemed to be very responsible for their dogs while we were there.
There is a paved path that runs from the marina to the Christie Campground, a total of 5 miles one way. It's a great place for a mellow walk or bike ride. There were lots of people who were out there on bikes with their kids.
Overall, it was a lovely place to stay. We've already got our next reservation to go with some friends in August. - roadie gal

This campground was a ways off our route, but well worth the extra travel. The price reflects the Golden Passport rate. Sites are very widely spaced, a huge plus for me. They are all deep in trees with fire rings (which we used each night) and sturdy picnic tables. The camp host is a true delight and she made the experience so much nicer. She knows all about the lake and can answer any questions you might have about the area. There is a nice marina store nearby with newspapers and all the stuff you need. We went at the end of the season and I can imagine in the summer that this place might be very busy and popular. There are loops with full hook ups, water and electric and no hookups, something for everyone! There is a dump station right across the road for $5 for the loops without full hookups, so we opted for water and electric only so we could be farther from the road. This is a gorgeous area and we would definitely come and stay at this campground again. - twestover

Unfortunately, Eagle Lake is suffering from the drought like some many other California lakes. This RV park is on the west side of the lake a few miles off Highway 139. If you go there, come around the north side of the lake particularly if you are towing. The trip up from the south on the A1 road can be difficult. Also, beware that some GPS systems will direct you to a closed back entrance. Call for directions.
Most sites are shaded with full hookups, 30amp electrical service. Free Wi-Fi was workable and cable TV service was weak. Excellent service from those we encountered. Only 4 or 5 others in the park when we were there so it was quiet. They also rent cabins.
Passport America park. PA rate was $19.50. - Coopsecondact

An excellent park; but first of all, do NOT take Eagle Lake Road from Susanville - it's narrow, winding, and steep. Take 139 from Susanville and the North entrance to Eagle Lake Road, drive to Spaulding street (which becomes Lake View Road) all the way to the end, turn right and go to the park. The park has 50+ RV sites, a few cabins, full hookups, laundry, restrooms with showers, recycling bins, dump station, gasoline ($4.80/gallon today!), propane, and a small store in the office. A very nice setting of large pine trees, with a view of Eagle Lake - which has been receeding, but not as bad as some other area lakes. Not crowded at all and very quiet with friendly owners and staff. I'd come back here in a heartbeat. - rv1guy2cats

This is a bit out of the way but the price was good and we needed a break. Had a good view of the lake. Lots of pine trees and needles this time of year. Staff friendly, hook ups easy and water quality was good. If you like to fish the lake is close by but we have no idea what fish are in the lake. View is good - traveling guy

The rate reflects a 10% AAA/Good Sam discount. Each site has full hook-ups with cable. There are two playgrounds, a small of-leash dog area, tent sites, some very nice permanent sites, horseshoe pits, boat dock, restaurant, lounge and a store. Verizon (phone and data) is pretty good. There is very friendly staff. We would definitely come here again. - campingandtravels.blogspot.com

This park would be great if all you wanted to do is fish Eagle Lake. No other activities in the area. The sights are dirt/gravel with pine trees as shade. The sights are relatively level and did not appear to have a lot of "big rig" sites. I thought Trailer Life's rating was a bit generous considering you only have a partial view of the lake. There is a nice restaurant on site and WIFI is available at a fee of around $5.00 per day. Cell phone service is non existent if you have Verizon as it is an Analog only area. The park is located 35 miles north of Susanville at an elevation of 5000 plus feet. Hwy 139 is a good, although somewhat narrow, highway which rises to 5400+ feet with a 6% winding grade before Susanville heading south. - James T

Beautiful RV park right across the street from Eagle Lake on the west shore in the Spaulding Tract. Most sites have a view of the lake. Each site is paved, wide, and has shade from tall pines. They also offer camping cabins and have an open tent area. Nice but small rec room with ping pong, video games, soda machine and a pool table. Clean restrooms with free showers. Satellite TV hook-up only offers about ten channels. Camp store has soft-serve ice cream, fishing tackle, a few groceries, lots of alcohol and mixers (wink) and the friendliest employees ever! Store also offers propane and gas. Launch ramp is about one half mile up the road. They offer boat slips and a place to park your boat trailer. Many fishing guides in the area. Trout are 14-16 inches long and folks were catching their limit. Lots of great places to ride bikes or walk your dog. Not much for the little kids. No real playground, only two swings and no swimming pool. Extremely quiet at night. Deer come right to your site and eat from your hand. This place may not have everything for everybody but it was a ten for us. We loved it and have made our reservation for next summer. - rosewood38

Nice little park. Easy to get to. There are good directions in the other posts and on the BLM site. We found the road to be excellent all the way to the campground. It is a donation site, so you donate as much as you like to camp there. Sites are level and large with fire rings; I gave it a 6 because it is in a close canyon without much of a view. We saw deer, cows, squirrels and butterflies. Down the road another 2 or three miles is a spectacular view and a gravel area large enough for several motorhomes or trailers to park. This is all BLM land leased to cattle farmers. You can access any of it. - careyfla

We stayed here three night recently. Good park with grass at sites and all utilities in good order. Sites have paved pads. Some a bit broken but seem to be level. Dog off leash area a bit wonky. Four small cages. Our pooch just looked at it and turned his nose up. Better to have one big cage. Check in person became very nice when I commented on how nice her CA poppies looked. Quiet. - RFCN2

The park is just on the outskirts of town. It's clean park. Almost all the sites are pull-through and about half has 50 amp. The bathroom is clean. It has good Wi-Fi and cable. There is a pool. I did not notice a store. However, the office sells ice. The staff is friendly. The roads are asphalt and the site is a concrete slab, including the car parking that is relatively level. Our only problem with the park was the slab is a bit narrow. We'd stay here again. - Jjtrips

Managers were drunk on the patio when we arrived. Lots of people hanging out under awning their loud conversation not fit for ladies and children. Their dog was running around off leash. Broken concrete with weeds growing. Bathroom disgusting. Won't be staying here again and if you're smart you won't either as long as they have those rude managers! - LongHaulRV
