20 RV Parks near Susanville, California
May 2012 - $1.00
Nice little park. Easy to get to. There are good directions in the other posts and on the BLM site. We found the road to be excellent all the way to the campground. It is a donation site, so you donate as much as you like to camp there. Sites are level and large with fire rings; I gave it a 6 because it is in a close canyon without much of a view. We saw deer, cows, squirrels and butterflies. Down the road another 2 or three miles is a spectacular view and a gravel area large enough for several motorhomes or trailers to park. This is all BLM land leased to cattle farmers. You can access any of it. - careyfla

Most sites are concrete pull-through with many of the periphery back-in sites filled with full timers. Clean park with small grass areas and a shade tree between sites. Utilities are convenient, although because of the narrow pad I had to pull forward to clear the slide out resulting in a stretch for the sewer connection. Limited dog areas and the fully fenced areas are very small. Staff was pleasant and check-in easy. Wi-Fi didn't work during our stay and cable box connection was loose causing ghosting of picture. Overal nice park and we would return. - DSchamp

We had tire problems and pulled into this RV park. Without a doubt, one of the surliest and rude office help we have experieced. We were apparently inconveniencing her. All she did was complain about how busy she was and how we should have had a reservation. She didn't want to hear that we had troubles on the road and that we could not have foretold that we would need a stop over in Susanville. She told us that she didn't know why people stopped in "Snoozeanville" as there was nothing to do there. Our site was cracked with uneven concrete slab and leaking hose bib. Toilets hadn't been cleaned in some time and the shower was moldy. It could be a really nice park. - Travlnpj

Rate includes a 10% Good Sam discount, but also includes a $5.00 electric surcharge. The site was concrete (new), pull-thru, level; FHU with 50 amp. Many other sites had broken concrete, but the park appears to be in the process of replacing the concrete. We had good Verizon voice and data reception and good DishTV satellite reception. The rate is high, but the park is clean, comfortable, and quiet for an overnight stay. - Dave51

This used to be an actual resort, with restaurant and bar, gas station, and lots of park models surrounding the RV park. However, the lake levels dropped so that boats couldn't be launched there, and after a water main break at the restaurant, the resort was foreclosed on and closed. Sunset Properties purchased just one portion of the RV park a few years ago...now there are only 9 pull through sites available. The rest of the "resort" looks like a ghost town, since Sunset didn't purchase it, and it has basically been abandoned. That being said, the part that is open is very, very nice. The caretakers don't live on property, but they are easily accessible by phone and stop by every day. The grounds are immaculately maintained, as are the restrooms. There is a lovely grass area for picnics, with a playground and horseshoe pits. There are also hiking trails nearby. The lake looks better this year thanks to the wet winter, but it is still too low to launch boats. If you want to just come somewhere fairly remote but relaxing, this is your place! - Tami K

Now advertising itself as Eagle Lake Resort (eaglelakerv). We booked on line and then recieved a call saying that the park wasn't technically open for another 2 weeks, and that we'd have the place to ourselves for our 2 night stay - and we could choose any site we liked. We were warned that due to some leaks the bathrooms had no hot water so no hot showers. That didn't bother us particularly, so we arrived and drove around the RV loop and picked a site, only to find that the water wasn't working. Power and septic were ok, so after searching around, we discovered that there were only 2 working taps on the dozen or so sites on this loop.
The place seemed to be a lot more than 2 weeks away from opening, judging by the condition of the grounds, and the apparent repairs in progress. There was no water in the restrooms, not just lacking hot as we were told. The appliances in the laundry rooms were awaiting connection; lights were not working, light fittings were broken, there were numerous flooded toilets, repair debris in the shower and toilet blocks, water damage to roof areas and there was a general feel that it was a very tired, old place needing a lot of tlc.
There are some nice looking , modern cabins on site, juxtaposed against the sad state of the rest of the camp. A real shame, because it has so much potential to be a really great resort. I guess this place used to be a hit with the fishermen, but now the lake water level is low enough to deny use of the boat launch and so the restaurant is all locked up, the gas pumps look abandoned, as do the rest of the other buildings.
Some maintenance had been done, and grass had been mowed on part of the park, but an awful lot still needs to be done for this to be a viable destination spot. It's not at all as portrayed on the website - which would indicate a thriving resort rather than ghost town - and reading other reviews on Google it it seems as if it has been this way (and in steady decline) for some years. - SoAdventurer

The rate reflects a 10% AAA/Good Sam discount. Each site has full hook-ups with cable. There are two playgrounds, a small of-leash dog area, tent sites, some very nice permanent sites, horseshoe pits, boat dock, restaurant, lounge and a store. Verizon (phone and data) is pretty good. There is very friendly staff. We would definitely come here again. - campingandtravels.blogspot.com

We had lake side views. It was a very quiet camp ground. Gorgeous sunsets, went kayaking in the lake 2 days. The employees were very kind. Its a great place if you are ok with not having things around you to keep you entertained. Its out a bit. We brought kayaks, rhino for wheeling in a bit and camp games. Stayed 5 days, 4 night. Would come back in a heart beat. Watched an Eagle feed her babies every night. - Kathys outdoor adventures

We stayed there 14 days. The price reflects the 14 days including the PassPort America Discount. Very clean park. The bathrooms are a little dated but clean. If the park is not crowded then almost all sites have a view of the lake. There was rain this year so while the water level is way down it is still better than last year. Unless you are a fisherman there is not much to do there.
The park is very clean and well maintained but there is a price for that. Almost every morning around 9am while we were there the maintenance worker would start his blower and clean the sites. We were in one of the double sites which was nice and level.
The laundry is $2 wash and $2 dry but only cold water. The store is nice but very expensive. The staff is very friendly. We made the mistake of paying in advance. We wanted to leave early but they would not refund the difference. We stayed there in a 5th wheel and would definitely stay there again if in the area. - newbies2016

Unfortunately, Eagle Lake is suffering from the drought like some many other California lakes. This RV park is on the west side of the lake a few miles off Highway 139. If you go there, come around the north side of the lake particularly if you are towing. The trip up from the south on the A1 road can be difficult. Also, beware that some GPS systems will direct you to a closed back entrance. Call for directions.
Most sites are shaded with full hookups, 30amp electrical service. Free Wi-Fi was workable and cable TV service was weak. Excellent service from those we encountered. Only 4 or 5 others in the park when we were there so it was quiet. They also rent cabins.
Passport America park. PA rate was $19.50. - Coopsecondact

We stayed over memorial day weekend. We were in a water/electric hookup spot (there are 2 full hookup loops, 2 water/electric loops, and 2 dry camping loops). Our site was mostly level. There was a very long and wide asphalt pad (plenty of room to walk about trailer and truck). Spots are quite large and mostly have lots of trees. There was plenty of open space for slide and awning to be fully extended with no obstructions. We were able to see the lake from our spot. There isn't really a big beach, but more of a grassy shore. There is a sandy bank for quite awhile out into the water to splash around in. (We previously stayed at this campground over labor day. The water was really warm in September.) There are two bathrooms per loop. They are real flush toilets, but can get very cold. There isn't hot water in the sinks. They are really really clean though! There are great paths for bike riding. - BeccaO3

I stayed in one of the full-hookup sites, but there are also electric and water sites and no-hookup sites at this beautiful campground among huge trees. This is indeed one of the most remote campgrounds I have stayed at. It is 20 miles on a curvy road to the nearest town, and there are only a couple of campgrounds on this huge lake. In fact, I discovered there is not even any mail service along the road going around the lake. And the campground is seldom full, but that adds to the peace and quiet. There are even few boats on the lake, partly because the lake level is down, although not as bad as two years ago. In fact, the marina is dry, but there is a boat launch there. Because of the changing lake levels, there is not even a beach because it is all grown up in grass, so not very good swimming. View of mountains across the lake, however, is priceless! Roads and camping sites are all asphalt and very nicely spread out. Sites are long and wide enough so you can walk around your rig on asphalt, which I like. I also enjoyed the paved bike trail. Big trees are beautiful but make satellite tricky. Not a lot to do here, but the scenery and quietness make it worthwhile. I did get 2-3 bars regularly on Verizon phone and hotspot, which was nice for such a remote spot. - judy_online

Very nice remote park on the shore of Eagle lake. I paid $10 per night including electricity with my disabled pass (1/2 price). Had no reservation and the park was sparsely populated. They also sell firewood. - kcjflea
