Annual Family Spot

We camp at Silver Lake every year. Absolutely beautiful place. Lake is a little walk from the campground. Primitive camping.

Beautiful Spot

My wife and I stayed here before moving on to Lassen Volcanic NP. We stayed here on a Monday night (it was our honeymoon) so we were the only ones here. There was a really cool, fast flowing creek running through the campsite. Just a gorgeous spot in the forest with toilets if you need them.

Close to the Highway

Of all the campgrounds at Eagle Lake this is the least appealing. It sits quite far from the lake on a dry, dusty hill. There is one pit toilet bathroom and there is less shade with less trees. It does have the advantage of being very close to highway 139 and would be a good spot to stop for the…

Super friendly staff!

Super nice staff!! They remembered us after only staying here twice which means they take pride in the care for their customers. We love that we can tent camp by the water!

Will definitely recommend to anyone!

Gorgeous

This was a great campground, managed by PG&E. It's pretty small, which made it much more quiet than other campgrounds. Our site was right on the river, so we had the peaceful sounds of rushing water to hear. The site (3) was also pretty decent size, and in my opinion the best site.

The best…

Cute

This is a former Boy Scout campground. It has a vault toilet. No trash, no faucets. There’s a creek where the road first meets the campground. Potable water. Fire restrictions based on regional signage. I’ve had fires here. Plenty of wood in surrounding area but you can’t buy it, forage only.…

Awesome!

I can’t say enough good things about this campground. Fowler’s was 100% full but as of later on a Thursday in mid-May here we have an entire loop to ourselves. Rain/showers were in some forecasts so some may have cancelled trips. Sites are much larger & more spread out than Fowler’s. Only…

Right on mc cloud creek

Great camp ground. $25 a night. Bathrooms, bear boxes, water and trash cans. Lots of mosquitoes at night of course you’re right on the water. Water is very low this year (2021) so you are on the creek. Normally the you will be on lake Shasta. No camp host and a lot of the site you can reserve…

Very weird vibes, but nice camp ground

The camp ground was beautiful. Pretty close to the water, however, this year summer 2021 the water is very low. The camp ground offers bathrooms, bear boxes, very nice fire rings and clean water. There is no camp host so bring your own wood. The fee is $25 a night. The trash cans were over flowed…

Abandoned campground

Visited 4-16-21. Campground appears to be closed but has no signs saying so, just covers on the old signs. Tables and fire rings removed in northern half, bathrooms locked. Nice place for dry camping, near scenic Wolf Creek.

This state park is a gem

I stayed at this campsite after they opened from the pandemic while on a road trip home and I am so so happy I stayed here. The waterfall is like nothing I have ever seen before, and I was so blown away at it's size. The campground is a 5-10 min walk from the waterfall and while it is not private,…

Quiet campground next to busy day site

Where camped here just after they opened in April, 2021.  The daytime visitors made for a large crowded parking lot and line at the entrance station, but so far on 8 campers in the 64 sites that were open.

It is a wonderfully shaded park (i.e. no solar) and the sites are nicely separated. …

Mosquito Mahem in Summer

There’s a beautiful view here, and a lot of peace and solitude- as long as you’re willing to share the space with mosquitos! The water is shallow and warm, so not great for fishing in the late summer. Lots of algae, so swimming can be eh, too. Paddle board paradise, though.

  • Lots of Lilly pads, not sure about the bass situation here. Might bring a pooper next time through.

Great option when Fowler’s is full!!

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.
