Whether with family or the Girl Scouts, Siskiyou was a repeat camping destination growing up. The lovely red earth, thick green trees and uniquely beautiful blue/teal water makes for a welcoming lake day for all ages. My cousins and I used to fish in the evenings after a day of playing in the water or hiking. Have seen deer and bears here
Eagle Lake is known for its “Eagle Lake Trout” and they get big! The lake itself can get choppy in the afternoon but get out and fish in the morning. The campground facilities here are complete and clean. They have a general store that has everything you could ask for, a little of everything and the staff is friendly and very helpful! The location is great if you like to explore things like lava beds, ice caves and wildlife!
Great campground with hook ups for our travel trailer. Spaces are pretty close together and small, but we got lucky and didn’t have anyone around us (likely due to bad air quality). If you kayak this is a great place to camp, it’s right next to the lake. Portable toilets were kept pretty clean. They do have showers. Located right outside the town of Chester.
This is an off-season review. Late October 2020. Pros: No one else here on a Friday night, easy to find, dispersed camping, no fee, some cell service. Cons: absolutely no services (they remove porta potty and trash after high season), water level in lake VERY low.
Nothing special but we were happy to spend a quiet night here on our long drive south from PNW to LA when most campsites were full or closed (fires and Covid).
We took 2 small children in a rented camper and went to this lake in a recommendation from friends in Mt. Shasta .. we were not disappointed! They were plenty of trees in the campground everybody was friendly, short walk with our water toys to the nice sandy beach and lake. We rented kayaks One day and the next we rented a pontoon boat and our friends joined us. We found a rope swing hanging on a tree and tied up and did some rope swing fun into the lake. We also enjoyed a short drive up to Castle lake at a higher elevation a lot less people not much sand but really nice for a picnic lunch. Everybody really had a great time.
Clean and quite. The sites are spread out and offer a lot of privacy. Full hookups $35, water and electric $30. Dry camp $20. On the south shore of Eagle Lake. No fires or Charcoal at this time. Would come back again. Stayed 3 nights.
This place was amazing! There were so many spots to select from. Stayed 4 nights and only saw 4 other campers. The vault toilet I was near was by far the cleanest vault toilet I’ve ever used. It was checked at least once in the 4 days I was there. The spot is free but has a donation box at entrance. Saw several people have small boats to fish on the lake. Had 3 bars of 4G service so enough to work remotely but it was an struggle. No water or trash services so please pack out. No fires at this time either. Stargazing here is to die for!!
We loved it, and will definitely come back
Unlike the other campground on Lake Bitton (Dusty Campground) this is a more developed campground. It can be reserved - through PGE.
There is water. There are showers. And it is much larger - 20 plus sites. It can accomodate trailers. Lots of people here with boats as there is a boat launch. Sites have tables and fire rings. Pretty open so privacy can be an issue.
Towards the end of the summer the lake can get "murky" and full of algae. So you won't be swimming say in September. The lake offers fishing, boating and kayaking, Easy access from the campground. There is a "beach" like area on the lake.
If you get there at the end of the season you will get fall color.
Yo are an easy ride to get to Burney Falls State Park - or you can go across the lake to get h=there.
