“Quiet wooded camping near lake”

Reviewed Jul 19, 2018

Overall Rating

Of the 4 campgrounds at Eagle Lake in Lassen NF, Christie is the farthest from the marina. We were here in mid July, on a Friday with no reservations and there were around half the sites still available. No hookups. We swam in the lake. It was shallow, soft silt bottom, very warm water near the shore but progressively cooler the further out we went. No beach, but people had chairs and canopies set up in the 18inch reeds and mud that line the shore. Lots of boating, floating, and fishing going on. Our favorite activity was riding bikes on the dedicated, paved path that winds through the woods with periodic amazing lake views. It is an easy 5 mile path that goes from the marina(were you can get ice and take showers) by Merrill campground and ends at Christie campground. We had a few mosquitoes in the morning and evenings but not enough to make me put on repellant or retreat inside. The nights cooled down pleasantly. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is that the bathrooms should have been cleaner. Most sites have partial to full shade from mature pines. Couldn't really see the lake from the campground.
