BLM announces winter campground closures

The Bureau of Land Management announces winter closures for campgrounds and a day use area in northern California.

Sites closed for the season include the Pit River Campground near Fall River Mills, the North Eagle Lake Campground in Lassen County, and the Douglas City, Junction City and Steel Bridge campgrounds along the Trinity River in Trinity County.

Near Susanville, vehicle access to the Hobo Camp Day Use Area is now closed for the season, but visitors can walk or bike to the site by using the Bizz Johnson Trail. There is parking at the Susanville Trailhead near the historic Susanville Railroad Depot, 601 Richmond Road.

Also remaining open is the Rocky Point East primitive camping area along the northwest shore of Eagle Lake along Lassen County Road A-1, about 4 miles west of the North Eagle Lake Campground. The site is for fully self-contained camping and is accessible only when snow conditions allow. The access road is not plowed.

These sites will reopen at various dates next spring when conditions allow.
