Merrill Campground, California

A Forest Service Campground located on Eagle Lake outside Susanville. WE were delighted to find that this campground had hookups! Not common in Forest Service campgrounds.


Merrill Campground on Eagle Lake: Site #32, this site has water & electric with dump station nearby, 181 sites, 5100 feet elevation. June 6th - 11th.

Overall Experience: smile

Arriving at Merrill Campground
It's always an adventure to head out in the morning, not knowing where we will settle in for the night. Just after Susanville, CA, we turned on to a narrow two lane road that twisted around through the pine forest. As we slowly drove the fourteen miles to the campground, I was sure hoping that this will work out. Well what did we find? This wonderful, well kept campground on a very large lake -- Eagle Lake. And the bonus was that there were hookups available. The last time we had hookups was Death Valley. From the pic, you can see the view we have of the lake from our site.

Paul Bunyan Westwood, a town near Susanville, claims that Paul Bunyan played a role in their past. Now, try telling that to someone from Minnesota.
