Eagle Lake Trout, Logging Heritage & Forested Plateaus

Largely undiscovered Lassen County, is a jewel of Northern California and an outdoor recreation paradise encouraging camping, hiking, fishing, snowmobiling, snow shoeing and cross-country skiing. The 25-mile Bizz Johnson Rail Trail is one of the best “rail to trail” conversions in California. 

Susanville serves as the recreational crossroads for the eastern part of the Shasta Cascade Region, with a variety of shops, restaurants, and lodging. Westwood, established in 1912, located just west of Susanville, was one of the largest company lumber towns in the West. A statue of legendary logger, Paul Bunyan, staggers 22 feet tall and honors Westwood’s heritage and presides over the annual Paul Bunyan Mountain Festival. 

Eagle Lake, the second largest natural lake in California, is located 16 miles north of Susanville and is home to the world-famous Eagle Lake Trout, a species entirely unique to the lake. These especially large trout average 3-5 lbs and attract fishing enthusiasts from around the world. Camping facilities, boat launch, marina, swimming beach, and picnic areas are located around the lake’s shoreline
