Update from Lassen National Forest: Eagle Lake, like all California lakes and reservoirs, is experiencing low water levels due to the ongoing drought. The water level of the lake will continue to drop throughout the summer. We have made repairs to the drop-off. Please exercise safety and caution due to the low water level while using the boat ramp at the Eagle Lake Marina.
