Eagle Lake dock removed
In advance of the winter season, the Lassen National Forest will remove the courtesy boarding dock at the low water boat ramp at Eagle Lake.
This move is intended to prevent ice, wind, and wave action from damaging the dock. The boat ramp will continue to be available until Dec. 31, or until weather makes it unsafe to use.
For more information, contact the Eagle Lake Ranger District at 257-4188.?
