2 Parks near Tionesta, California
May 2015 - $22.00
We've stayed here many times on our trips north and south. Eagle's Nest is one of our favorite parks. It is 29 miles south of Tule Lake, CA.
This is a quiet and peaceful park, with beautiful views. There are two rows of RV spots, all on grass with full hook up with 50 amp. This isn't a little strip of grass next to gravel. This is a completely grass park, with gravel roadways. The owners live on site and are friendly and welcoming.
Do not get confused by the fact that there are two RV parks on this little road. Eagle's Nest is the original. It's the farther one down the road.
This would be a great park for families visiting Lava Beds. Bring the kids bikes. They'll have a great time in Eagle's Nest. There are goats and a small kid's playground. - pinenut

There in NOTHING is Tionesta, so fill up on fuel before you get there. The nearest gas is 30 miles away. Nearest diesel and propane is in Klamath Falls, 60 miles away. There are two RV Parks right next to each other. You have to drive through Hawk's Nest RV Park to get to Eagle's Nest RV Park. It is very quiet, not near any highways or train tracks. Wifi is excellent. No cable, but antenna picks up all major networks. Owners and their helper are very hands on and some of the nicest people you'll meet. When our son's bike was stolen at a campground in Redding, the owner pulled a bike out of her storage shed, fixed a flat tire, adjusted the seat, and brought it over for him to ride around while we were there. There is a little playground and a couple of very friendly goats. This is a great place to visit Lava Beds National Monument (14 miles away), or explore the volcanic mountains surrounding the area. - LifeRidingShotgun

This is a really nice little park in the middle of nowhere. At least it seems like know where until you start looking around. You're within driving distance to Lava Beds N.M., Medicine Lake and Glass Mountain. Be aware that there are no services of any kind for 18 miles so come well stocked. We thought this would be a 1 night stop over but stayed 4 nights. All sites are pull through and are all grass, even where you park. And this is really nice grass. A nice surprise for high desert and pine trees. There is a decent amount of distance between sites. Access to and movement throughout the park is easy even for large rigs although you'll be driving slowly after leaving the highway due to rough pavement. The sites are somewhat level. We used 3 blocks in the front to level. Not a problem. The water and sewer are located at the back and the electrical pedestal is toward the middle. A nice touch for those whose power is further forward. Their wifi is some of the best I've seen and our Verizon 4G worked well as did satellite. The owners are very nice, accommodating and laid back. The regular rate of $22 per night for full hookups (we paid $20 with Good Sam discount) is a steal. You pay separately for your electrical, just 20 cent per kilowatt. So use as much or as little as you want. Great park if you have a dog. They have a lot of land to walk on but also back up to Forest Service land to explore. We definitely will be back. - mikenchelby

What a great find!! My wife and I were spending some time in the Mountains to fish the local rivers and lakes. We stumbled across this park as a possibility since it was outside Tulelake, CA near Medicine Lake (off Hwy 139) and thought we would give it a try. Caught my limit 3 days in a row both Brook and Rainbow Trout. Absolutely wonderful, peaceful and relaxing. Although there are no cable hook ups, we had no problem getting a signal from our HD antenna. In fact, watched Thursday night football while sitting outside having a glass of wine and enjoying the many deer (does and their fawns) cruise the campground. Owners/Managers (husband & wife) are very friendly and take pride in the property. The drive to the park is off Hwy 139 onto 97 to Medicine Lake don't rely on GPS or use the coordinates to get you to the park. It's approximately 3 miles from Hwy 139. You may feel as though you're lost at first but you'll see the signs to the park. Just ensure that you stay at Hawk's NEST don't confuse it with Eagle's NEST. Remember you're in the mountains the park is 4000' and Medicine Lake is a short 25 mile drive that is 8,000' elevation. We camped here in a MH 40', nice level pads (space 11) and plenty of room for the slides. Rated it a 9 only because of the dirt pads and dust but owners are working on it. Definitely would stay here again. - Brooks Hall

This is a really great little park tucked into the trees. New, clean gravel everywhere. Sites are large and level. They have about 10 cabins available to rent... they are neat, historic cabins from the Long Bell Railroad camps and really have a rustic feel... while offering modern amenities. Restrooms and showers were very clean. Laundry facilities are available on site (though we didn't have to use them while we were here). On-site owners/managers really care for the place and make you feel at home. They have a group campfire (they provide the wood) where you can relax in the evening and chat with other guests. Very nice and inviting. We would definitely recommend this park and plan to return. - bcbounders
