Like Fishing?

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!

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

Northshore - Lake Britton

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.

Great Campground

This campsite is pretty awesome. We stayed at site #21 in loop D. The sites were very large and came equipped with a fire ring/grill, bear box and picnic table.

We had a great time exploring the park and hanging out around Lake Manzanita.

Lassen National Park is beautiful and we hope to be back soon. Even during a busy Labor Day Weekend the park was crowded but nothing like a bigger national park (think Yosemite) in a regular weekend. It was nice being able to experience the park without feeling totally overcrowded.

The camp store was very convenient if you forget anything!

Great Rooms

We stayed 2 nights in one of the lodge rooms and loved it.

Beautiful Lake & Park

This campground is BIG. there are four loops of sites.  I am a tent camper so this area can be on the crowded side for me with not enough privacy.

That being said the lake is beautiful. Easy access for kayaks and canoes.

The sites are clean, have table, food locker and fire sit.  Bathrooms are flush with showers available.  Close by are cabins to rent on the lake and a store, rentals and even gas,

Great jumping off site to get thru Lassen Park. Can take 45 minutes to get to the other side but there is lots of hiking and incredible views.  And crazy geo thermal sites such as Bumpass Hell.

Empty

So nice! 8 camp spots sites are super close to the river. Great fishing, swimming lagoon, picnic tables, fire rings ( no fires right now ), vault toilets, and quiet. We were literally the only people who were camping. Paved road and stunning views

Nice cozy place

Clean place, very close to the waterfalls
