“Great overnight spot right off CA 139”

Reviewed Oct 11, 2017

Overall Rating

We have stayed here several times because we often travel from OR to Truckee CA. It is a small turn-out on the Eagle Lake side of CA 139. It has no ammenities except being right off the road with a view of Eagle Lake, and it is free! There has never been anyone else here when we have camped here overnight.

This year the lake is fuller than we have ever seen it, so it is much closer to the camping spot than in past years. There are also several spots across CA 139, but we are too big to fit there. We have never found this spot to be unclean, even though there are no trash cans. We see wildlife near the lake, especially hawks hunting. There isn't much traffic after dark, so not a lot of road noise. Our Dish tailgater worked fine.

We prefer to stay off major highways and therefore travel CA 395/139 heading either north or south. We don't have any problem with CA 139 - it is a two-lane road with no shoulder and is obviously steep in parts as it goes over the mountains, but the scenery is beautiful.

“Thought we would try Eagle Lake while heading south”

Reviewed Nov 10, 2016

Overall Rating

While migrating south we found this site on a competing App. Thought we would try it. The North Eagle CG was closed for the season so we parked at this dispersed site right on the side of Hwy 139 North of Susanville. Very near the highway along the shore of the lake (low water, actual lake is now 1/4 mile away. Hated the drive from this site to Susanville, will never travel this road again. We will instead stay on Hwy 395 and camp at Ramhorn BLM CG.
