was super impressed by this one. got in later than expected and fowler’s was full, cattle camp did not disappoint. short drive or medium walk to a cold shasta swimming hole, nice trails, some highway buzz but nothing too bothersome.
Stayed a couple of days in the big forested campsites. The geothermal features are unique (especially if you haven't been to Yellowstone). There are rental kayaks nearby and plenty of hikes. We did a really interesting cindercone hike.
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!
Already one of my favorite little lakes, the camping did not disappoint. The sites are spacious and unique. The campground is paved which cuts down on the dust, but the road up is all dirt. We visited in mid-June. It got cool at night but was warm enough during the day to swim.
Years ago you could camp right on the lake in primitive walk in spots, now that is not allowed. There is a small campground with just a few spots down the road a quarter mile but it's rare to find an empty spot there. The lake has grown in popularity over the years and if you want to secure a day spot on the lake's edge plan on getting there first thing in the morning. People do also disperse camp about another mile down the road in a gravel pull out area. Castle Lake is easy to get to via Castle Lake road which is paved the entire way.
Greg took care of us and was friendly and personable. There’s a convenience store and the little town is super close and convenient. Nothing fancy schmancy, but roomy and woodsy, and convenient for our drive down California. :) highly recommend!
