Eagle Lake is so uniquely beautiful that you have to go there, and it is so far from anywhere that you have to stay for a while. Don’t bother lugging food supplies all the way to Eagle Lake—buy everything in nearby downtown Susanville, a town so western that you’ll expect Wyatt Earp to saunter out of one of the square brick buildings on Main Street in his bowler hat, toting a six-gun. Then you’ll look around and see the supermarket, gas station, and bank. All the same, Susanville is a real cowboy town.
