REDDING, Calif.  –  The Bureau of Land Management is announcing winter closures for 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 four 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.

The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. Our mission is to sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of America’s public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations.
