Status: Closed through Wed May 14 2014 Season Dates
Christie Campground is located in the Eagle Lake Recreation Area of the Lassen National Forest. This recreation area has five campgrounds, three designated day use areas and a marina on the south shore of Eagle Lake. All these recreation facilities are connected by a 5.2 mile paved hiking/bike trail. The Osprey Overlook, another day use area in the recreation area, can be hiked or driven too for a scenic view of the southern end of Eagle Lake and the surrounding forest basin.
Eagle Lake is located where the Sierras meet the Cascades at the southwestern end of the lake, and the Modoc Plateau of the Great Basin at the northeastern end. This unique location offers diverse landscapes, geology, wildlife and vegetation.
Fishing for the Eagle Lake Rainbow Trout, a California Heritage Trout, is the primary recreational activity on Eagle Lake, but the 3rd largest natural lake in California (22,000 acres), provides for plenty of room for swimming, kayaking, skiing and all other boating activities by motor or sail. There are no 2-cycle restrictions for outboard boat motors or PWCs.
Of the five campgrounds in the recreation area, Christie Campground is located the greatest distance from the marina and boat ramp, about five miles or a 10-minute drive. Due to its location, this campground is the least used and occupied in the recreation area. This distinction has developed a very loyal customer base of RV, trailer and tent campers who want a quiet, spacious, camping experience in this beautiful landscape.
The Lassen National Forest has many other recreational opportunities and the Lassen Volcanic National Park is an easy day’s drive to and from Eagle Lake Recreational Area.
