10 RV Parks near Susanville, California

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

Susanville RV Park was one of the cleanest parks I've seen, and we travel all over the US and parts of CA. The restrooms and showers were not new, but immaculate. There is a really nice laundry with no machines out-of-order. Pads were concrete, some cracked, but not crumbling. Sites had grass and some shrubs and trees, all very clean and neatly trimmed. Host and hostess were pleasant and efficient. There was no traffic or air-traffic noises. The only thing that was bothersome was all the security lights, but they are there for our benefit. We would definitely recommend this park. - Ramblin' Duo

Didn't have reservations although the park was about 1/4 full. The check in lady was surly but gradually became nicer during the check in process. I almost left because of the attitude. Nice park and close to shopping. The sewer connections on a lot of the sites are more than six inches high and so it doesn't drain. I saw a lot of people using the dump station. Quiet and comfortable. - Candy pop

This used to be an actual resort, with restaurant and bar, gas station, and lots of park models surrounding the RV park. However, the lake levels dropped so that boats couldn't be launched there, and after a water main break at the restaurant, the resort was foreclosed on and closed. Sunset Properties purchased just one portion of the RV park a few years ago...now there are only 9 pull through sites available. The rest of the "resort" looks like a ghost town, since Sunset didn't purchase it, and it has basically been abandoned. That being said, the part that is open is very, very nice. The caretakers don't live on property, but they are easily accessible by phone and stop by every day. The grounds are immaculately maintained, as are the restrooms. There is a lovely grass area for picnics, with a playground and horseshoe pits. There are also hiking trails nearby. The lake looks better this year thanks to the wet winter, but it is still too low to launch boats. If you want to just come somewhere fairly remote but relaxing, this is your place! - Tami K

Now advertising itself as Eagle Lake Resort (eaglelakerv). We booked on line and then recieved a call saying that the park wasn't technically open for another 2 weeks, and that we'd have the place to ourselves for our 2 night stay - and we could choose any site we liked. We were warned that due to some leaks the bathrooms had no hot water so no hot showers. That didn't bother us particularly, so we arrived and drove around the RV loop and picked a site, only to find that the water wasn't working. Power and septic were ok, so after searching around, we discovered that there were only 2 working taps on the dozen or so sites on this loop.
The place seemed to be a lot more than 2 weeks away from opening, judging by the condition of the grounds, and the apparent repairs in progress. There was no water in the restrooms, not just lacking hot as we were told. The appliances in the laundry rooms were awaiting connection; lights were not working, light fittings were broken, there were numerous flooded toilets, repair debris in the shower and toilet blocks, water damage to roof areas and there was a general feel that it was a very tired, old place needing a lot of tlc.
There are some nice looking , modern cabins on site, juxtaposed against the sad state of the rest of the camp. A real shame, because it has so much potential to be a really great resort. I guess this place used to be a hit with the fishermen, but now the lake water level is low enough to deny use of the boat launch and so the restaurant is all locked up, the gas pumps look abandoned, as do the rest of the other buildings.
Some maintenance had been done, and grass had been mowed on part of the park, but an awful lot still needs to be done for this to be a viable destination spot. It's not at all as portrayed on the website - which would indicate a thriving resort rather than ghost town - and reading other reviews on Google it it seems as if it has been this way (and in steady decline) for some years. - SoAdventurer

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

We stayed there 14 days. The price reflects the 14 days including the PassPort America Discount. Very clean park. The bathrooms are a little dated but clean. If the park is not crowded then almost all sites have a view of the lake. There was rain this year so while the water level is way down it is still better than last year. Unless you are a fisherman there is not much to do there.
The park is very clean and well maintained but there is a price for that. Almost every morning around 9am while we were there the maintenance worker would start his blower and clean the sites. We were in one of the double sites which was nice and level.
The laundry is $2 wash and $2 dry but only cold water. The store is nice but very expensive. The staff is very friendly. We made the mistake of paying in advance. We wanted to leave early but they would not refund the difference. We stayed there in a 5th wheel and would definitely stay there again if in the area. - newbies2016

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

I stayed in one of the full-hookup sites, but there are also electric and water sites and no-hookup sites at this beautiful campground among huge trees. This is indeed one of the most remote campgrounds I have stayed at. It is 20 miles on a curvy road to the nearest town, and there are only a couple of campgrounds on this huge lake. In fact, I discovered there is not even any mail service along the road going around the lake. And the campground is seldom full, but that adds to the peace and quiet. There are even few boats on the lake, partly because the lake level is down, although not as bad as two years ago. In fact, the marina is dry, but there is a boat launch there. Because of the changing lake levels, there is not even a beach because it is all grown up in grass, so not very good swimming. View of mountains across the lake, however, is priceless! Roads and camping sites are all asphalt and very nicely spread out. Sites are long and wide enough so you can walk around your rig on asphalt, which I like. I also enjoyed the paved bike trail. Big trees are beautiful but make satellite tricky. Not a lot to do here, but the scenery and quietness make it worthwhile. I did get 2-3 bars regularly on Verizon phone and hotspot, which was nice for such a remote spot. - judy_online

Very nice remote park on the shore of Eagle lake. I paid $10 per night including electricity with my disabled pass (1/2 price). Had no reservation and the park was sparsely populated. They also sell firewood. - kcjflea

Nice park. We stopped in without reservations and was able to get a spot with only a few left. They allow driveups as well as reserved area. Beautiful well kept park. It was full of families camping on vacation with boats, tents, rvs and access to the lake. I was amazed at how quiet it was during the day and at night even though the campground was virtually full.
I would have loved to stay a week. It was very relaxing. There's a nice paved trail that connects all the parks together, I think it's 5 miles long.
For safety reasons everyone is required to back the RV in as well as any other vehicles. The camphost was very helpful and stopped us and explained procedures as we drove in.
We camped in a 37' motorhome and had lots of room for out mh and tow vehicle. - catrst

Small park, so we called prior to arrival. No reservations for Passport America but we told them we were coming and he said ok. Upon arrival the park was full for the evening. Check in was efficient with three of us arriving at exactly the same time. Pullthru was long enough for 43 ft motorhome and attached toad. Hookups perfectly placed and warmers on the waterline to prevent freezing. The following morning the same man was out in the park checking sites after folks left and offering suggestions on departures and routes. Nice place and price for an overnight, would definitely stay again. Site 17 was on the end, so we did decide to unhook the toad to make the curve when leaving. Seemed the safest thing to do. - Eureka12

Friendly welcome. FHU pull thru site. No problems with utilities. - Kallie41

No pool, rec room, and TV was limited. We don't use those so our 10 is conditional. Also, I am ignoring that the soap dispenser in the men's was empty. What you get is a level site with good utilities and clean restrooms/showers that are handicap accessible. Laundry like new 1.25/0.75. Check in was fast and friendly. It is a quiet, rural location. Unless you want/need city services, concrete, and resort features this park is nearly perfect. Fine for an overnight or to just sit for a couple of days. - gumper

It is an old mobile home park that is being converted into an RV park so each site is where a mobile home previously stood. This translates into very large gravel lots which were easy to back into with our 38' motorhome. In fact we could have pulled in 1 or 2 other RVs along with 2 or 3 vehicles. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Water pressure was good and tasted OK. Our electric connection did not work correctly but when I told the manager they had someone there quickly to correct the problem. We only stayed one night so did not hook up the sewer until the morning when we were ready to leave to dump just the gray water. Lifted a metal cap that covered a PVC pipe and started to dump and immediately started to overflow. Told the manager and she said that was the wrong pipe. They had 2 other pipes covered by small black plastic caps with nothing being labeled. She apologized for not informing us. So be aware of connection. Because of the trees it took a little bit of adjusting before I was able to get a satellite TV signal with our detached antennae. We were traveling through and just spending the one night so it worked fine for us. The park has the potential to be a very nice park but still needs work which they are doing. Be prepared to go through a lot of paperwork when you register. Evidently the owner is a stickler for following the laws and it is as if you are making a long term lease. - Ramblin On

Sites were very spacious lengths and widths. FHU with sewer and 50 amp at all sites. Wifi provided. Cell service good (AT&T). Mature trees limit satellite reception. Hosts are very friendly and accommodating. After setting up, host had a new picnic table and firewood delivered. Good fishing with several lakes nearby. Would definitely come back. - Cfvalk

Tent camping for only one night. Lots of mosquitos after dark. Then there were the freight trains nearby. At 12:15 a.m. it sounded like that train was going to come right through my tent! Another one at 1:15 a.m. and another one at 4:30 a.m. I could feel the ground vibrate as the trains went by at about 30 MPH. The horns were LOUD! After the 4:30 a.m. train, I just wanted to get out of there. I took a shower in the excellent shower rooms, packed up and departed. Never did get enough sleep. Perhaps inside a motorhome the noise of the train wouldn't be so shocking, but that first train sure gets your attention! - Douglas R

We were satisfied with our spot. As others said it is a little run down and the view was of a dry lake bed. Our spot was level and it was full hook up. We were able to use our cell phones. No WiFi, we were able to get TV over the antenna. We were happy here and for one night while traveling the 395. - Pamela & Gerald

The views across the highway of dried up Honey Lake do draw the eye - and that's a good thing because the campground is a mess. There's a lot of junk laying around: broken, rusty swing sets, old rundown RVs on the side and in the back, a huge orange trailer with bags of trash to the rim that need disposing of (flies), dog poop laying around everywhere - even at campsites (ours). It's just dismal to say the least. During our stay we heard one of the tenants living in a very old rig using the "f" word very loudly to read out the management, and another's dog barked incessantly. The noise from the highway is not conducive to a good night's sleep. For a moment, I'd considered using this as a layover on my snowbird route home, but have decided that even the good price isn't worth it. - Chris-Kiva

I wrote the last review of this park, and there's not much new to say about it. It's still rough around the edges, but quiet and safe and peaceful. The roads into and out of the park are dirt and pretty bumpy. The proprietors are very nice people and friendly and accommodating. The WiFi worked adequately and you can't beat the price. Honey Lake is definitely not a destination park, but good for an overnight stop. - BruceandKathyWA

We camped at Lake Haven Resort last year. The spots were very small and hard to get into. Has a very small lawn area for the kids to play on. Was quite a walk to the water on rocks. Will not go back to pay $60/night for cramped camping. - uptownmommy
