What a wonderful campground. We were warmly greeted at the gate by the owner and invited to choose any open site and set up. Green grass everywhere, so inviting.
We had planned to only stay one night and head out early to continue on our way. After talking to Craig and learning of all the interesting places to visit nearby we decided to stay another night. We will definitely be back so we can explore the areas we missed.
Eagles Nest is a very peaceful place and gives you the opportunity to observe a sky at night overflowing with stars.
The owners, Craig and Barbara are on site and a wealth of information for the area. They are also beautiful, down to earth people. Can't wait to pass this way again. - AZ Tug

I agree with all the raving reviews. Nice owners, grassy sites, room for big rigs to maneuver, everything works. Good Wifi. A short drive (14 miles) to Lava Beds National Monument. No road noise, trains in the distance occasionally, no light pollution so you can see the stars. We were going to stay one night and stayed 4 instead. We'll come back! - Go often

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

This is a nice park a bit out off the beaten track but convenient to Lava Beds NM and wildlife refuges. Very friendly owner, quiet and secluded, and easy maneuvering for big rigs. Sites are roomy, finely packed gravel, and without grass. While shaded, there's room for a clear shot to TV satellites although and are a surprising number of OTA channels. Verizon cell and data were very good. We experienced occasional fluctuating voltage which caused our surge protector to shut down our power. Overall a comfortable stay in an area with few options. - Meanderman

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
