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

Overnighted here 8 years ago and wanted to come back for a longer stay. Rate reflects monthly stay. The sites are concrete and with the cold winters have cracked and heaved in some places so you may have to straddle a dip in your site but very doable. Long wide pull thrus with concrete patio and grassy area in most sites, easy access from the highway and wide streets in the park, weather was great in the month of June for snowbirds escaping summer heat. Work campers on the job daily to keep park looking tip top. Fairgrounds are nearby and was able to see fireworks from our site. Park was quiet. 4 small fenced areas to walk your dog off leash. You could walk your dog on a leash in all the park except the two back corners with long term residents. Deer in park many mornings. We had mail forwarded a couple times and office called each time to let us know it was in. Would stay again if in the area. Reservations encouraged during peak summer months. - mserafin

A very clean and well kept park. Fair wi-fi, good if you have an external adapter. Good ATT. Easy satellite set-up. Nice pull through concrete site and the manager didn't pile everyone right next to each other. Convenient to most everything. Maybe a little pricey. We would stay here again. - vmi1962

There are permanent occupants are on the perimeter - all are neat - no dumpy sites. Many of the cement pads are cracked but are serviceable. Trash dumpster and recycling is in one area at the front of the park. Owners are friendly and helpful. There are many one-night guests - we stayed three nights - and the owners/managers kindly located us not in the midst of the one-night guests. - Shep and Laura Peck

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

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

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

Nice place, had to move sites because our neighbors had 4 huge dogs they staked out at night that barked. There is no limit on dogs here. I wish people would be more considerate but they aren't. The camp host was very nice and recommended a site which was very nice. Lake was within walking distance. - billie'smom

This is a national forest campground with hookups, not a resort. With that expectation, the sites are shaded by towering pines, were paved, long (could handle any size rig), and had great separation. Most sites appeared to have a slight slope front to back which would require minor leveling. The loop closest to the lake are dry camping while loops farther away have hookups. Bath houses are numerous and modern and kept clean. No showers. Dump is across the street and costs $5. Was able to get steady two/three bar Verizon signal. The nearest town, Susanville, is 20 twisting miles aways. Also, we encountered lots of mosquitos here. Summing up, if you are comparing to a resort and want convenience and amenities this would rate as average (5 or 6); if you rate it as a campground and place to relax it rates as excellent (9). - TravelinTail

This is a great little park with easy access off of Hwy 395. It was quiet, small, adult-oriented and the restrooms were spotless. The sites were well-maintained and nicely spaced. No leveling required. We were only passing through and just stayed the night, but if there was something to see in the area, I would not hesitate to use the RV park as a base for exploring for a couple of days. I would not hesitate to come back again and will probably stay here on our return trip. - gtogrl

Arnie is a cool RV Camp host. He treated us like family. Good service, perfect location for an overnight or exploring the area. Although a tad dusty, overall we would return here if in the area. - Maltaman

Beautiful, clean, well-tended park convenient for Hwy. 395 travelers. Arrived mid-afternoon and assigned a pullthru w/FHU. By dark, most pullthrus were full, but not all. Later in summer might be problematic w/o calling first. Great for overnighters, but we did not stay to explore. CG owner Arnie was very pleasant and helpful. - brauneyz

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
