BLM closes northeast California campgrounds for winter season

The Bureau of Land Management will close several campgrounds and recreation sites for the winter season beginning Monday, Nov. 14.

The seasonal closures will affect the North Eagle Lake Campground, the Hobo Camp Day Use Area in Lassen County and the Pit River Campground near Fall River Mills in eastern Shasta County. While the Hobo Camp closure affects vehicle access and parking, visitors can still hike into the area from the adjacent Bizz Johnson National Recreation Trail which is open year-round.

The Rocky Point shoreline camping area at Eagle Lake and the Ramhorn Springs Campground off Highway 395 near Ravendale in eastern Lassen County are exempt from the seasonal closures. Both facilities are open year-round, however, access may be limited by snow. Call the BLM Eagle Lake Field Office at (530) 257-0456, to check conditions.

The seasonal closures do not apply to dispersed camping away from developed recreation facilities. Dispersed camping is allowed for up to 14 days in areas that are not posted as closed to camping.
