Campground has a nice view of the lake. Nice large campground with spots spread out. Bath rooms and showers are nice and clean. Lots of water faucets to use plus a rv dump station.

“Quiet, pleasant respite from campgrounds on top of interstate freeways”

What a pleasant surprise! The Buckhorn campground on the Black Butte Reservoir is managed by the Army Corps of Engineers. There are 3 separate camping loops that cozy up to the main body or arms of the reservoir about 13 miles northeast of I-5 from Orland California.

We visited in February and only the south loop was open on a first-come, first-served basis. The mostly level and paved sites sit on a hill overlooking the reservoir and many have either a water view or a view of Mt. Lassen and surrounding mountains to the east. There are no hook-ups but water is available and there are flush toilets and showers. There is an RV dump available. The pull-through sites would handle very big rigs. We chose a back-in site and were able to leave our 21 foot (overall) trailer connected to the truck. The sites were nicely spaced as well although the lack of foliage means there's little privacy.

If fishing is your thing there's a boat launch and reports of great fishing. We saw/heard tons of birds and watched a small herd of deer that was enjoying the new grass growing near the campground. Other campers told us that winter and spring are the best time to visit because it gets hot and crowded in the summer months.

We got 3 bars of Verizon 4g service. Nightly rate is $20 but federal passes are accepted.
