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

One of the nicest USFS campgrounds we have seen in a while. Very tall shady pines, nice level sites. The sites nearest the lake don't have hookups, the next loop has power and water, and the loop furthest from the lake has full hookups. Firewood is available from the camp host. Eagle Lake is a 14 mile drive off the main highway, but the road is paved and mostly in good condition. Good cell reception for our Verizon phones and data card. There is a marina and store nearby but we didn't visit. Very mellow this time of year and we decided to stay an extra day. I would imagine during the summer, this campground would be full and a lot less mellow. We would camp here again, but only in the off season. - hhendrix

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

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

Loved this park. Just took it by chance when we saw that they had paved streets and paved sites. A few sites are out of the trees where we could get dish TV. They had cable, but it was limited. People are very nice. Our price was Passport America. We ended up staying three nights. If going to this park do not follow GPS. Go in off 139 at Eagle Lake Rd to, I think it was Stoddard, and drive to the end and turn right. The west side of the lake is pretty but quite windy. Nice for a day ride. Would and will stay here again. Nice view of this the second largest natural lake in California, and known for rainbow trout. - Rpopeye

All i have to say is the campground was very clean and nice. However the drive from Susanvile to the campground is very FAR about 40 miles or so. Very COLD in the mornings so bring an extra blanket. Overall very nice. - SDcamper123

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

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

We stayed overnight on our way to Las Vegas and were assigned a pull thru site. Power post convienently located. Reception helpful and provided maps of the city. The pad was concrete but only wide enough for the trailer and not long enough to remain connected to our truck. Very close to neighbours and narrow roads to navigate. Noticed quite a few long term stays situated on the perimeter. Wifi was working however they state they can't ensure it is stable. Overall a good place to rest on the way to your next destination. - Semiretired
