Fishing 10 steps from our Trailer

1st RV park that I ever took my trailer to. Easy to get in and out of the camp site large camp sites, the hat Creek runs right through the camp ground and we caught trout all morning. Wonderful place convenience store was great too!👍👍

Great Vibes for an In Transit Night

Great location on the way to many points north along with an excellent morning or evening adventure to the falls. Camp Host (owner/operator?) is awesome and worth the stay alone.

Sites are a bit tight so might not be the solitude you’d want to a multi day stay but was perfect and energizing for a night in transit!

Nice sites but limited activities

The campsites are well spaced and have full hookups and a nice table and fire ring. It has lake front, kayak rentals, and a mini golf course. It does not have trails for biking or hiking, or a good place to go running. For hiking, check out Inks Lake state park.

Quiet and peaceful

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.

Quiet and private

This is so close to Lassen without the busyness of the park in summer. We visited end of July and the access to the creek was so welcome.

Sites above 10 will have a bit more quiet, but are further from the store/restaurant.

Nice, quite and spacious

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.

Awesome spot for the week!

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!!

Gorgeous!!

We loved it, and will definitely come back

Good chill spot

Nicely spaced out sites, nice area

Poor signage, appears permanently closed

Both entrances are closed off with metal guardrail
