West Eagle Campground is part of the Eagle Lake Recreation Area in the Lassen National Forest, which offers a variety of lakes, streams and wilderness areas and an abundance of recreation opportunities.
In addition to water sports on the lake, the area also offers miles of trails that are used year-round for hiking and mountain biking and by snowmobiling enthusiasts during the winter months.
West Eagle Campground offers two group sites for tent or RV camping. One site can accommodate up to 75 guests, while the other is rated for up to 100 guests.
Each site is equipped with tables and campfire rings with grills. Accessible flush toilets, electricity and drinking water are provided. Firewood is available for purchase.
Off-road vehicle use is prohibited within the campground
Fire Restrictions: Fire restrictions may be imposed at any time due to hot, dry weather conditions, at which time campfires and charcoal fires may not be allowed.
Reserved Sites will be held until check out time (NOON) the day following your arrival date. Sites must be occupied by the checkout time of that following day to hold a reservation or the site will be forfeited and released to other guests. Once your reservation start date has begun, neither the Recreation.gov Contact Center nor the campground manager will be able to modify your reservation.
Refunds: Refund requests made through www.recreation.gov will be charged a $10 processing fee. This fee is retained by the reservation service contractor along with the non-refundable reservation fee. All requests for the return of the non-refundable reservation fee and the cancellation fee will be declined by the campground concessionaire as they did not receive these fees (these are the fees retained by the reservation contractor, a different entity).

The campground is located on the southeastern shores of Eagle Lake, in northeastern California, at an elevation of approximately 5,100 feet. It is nestled in a forest of mature pine trees with a grassy understory. A few sites offer sweeping views of the adjacent lake and some have space to moor a boat.
The 27,000-acre lake provides ample boating, swimming, water skiing and sailing opportunities. Visitors also enjoy the plentiful trout fishing. A boat ramp can be found not far from the campground, and a beach is located at the nearby Aspen Campground.
The campground offers access points for miles of trails within the Eagle Lake Recreation Area. A 6-mile hiking, biking and horseback riding trail parallels the lake and winds through the surrounding forest.
