Eagle Lake in Lassen National Forest, CA is a beautiful lake with several great campgrounds to choose from. I had a wonderful time at Merrill Campground which offers something for everyone!
Whether you enjoy hiking, fishing, swimming, boating, or just hanging out by a campfire with family & friends the Eagle Lake area is a great place to spend time. I was here for a few days, but my next visit will be at least for a week in search of the best fishing spots ;-).
Eagle Lake is 5100 feet above sea level in north eastern California about 16 miles north of Susanville in Lassen County. It is the second largest natural freshwater lake wholly in California. Having no natural surface outlet, Eagle Lake is a closed basin lake with its water levels fluctuating with variations of inflow. Water surface areas have fluctuated between 16,000 to 29,000 acres with a present area of 26,000 acres.
