 Birdwatching

The park is located near the Klamath National Wildlife Refuge and the Tulelake Bird Refuge on the Pacific Flyway, one of only four migratory bird flyways in North America.  Millions of birds make their annual migration south and return north along this flyway.  Many birds stay in the area year-round. Here at Eagle's Nest RV Park we have dozens of different breeds to observe and photograph.

Hiking   

Hike from your camp site out our south fence line up Timber Mountain to the Timber Mountain Fire Lookout, 3 mile round trip. We have developed a few hiking trails on our 36 acre property. Also there are over 72 square miles of hiking terrain with miles of trails to hike within the boundaries of the nearby Lava Beds National Monument

Biking         

Enjoy mountain biking the way it should be with hundreds of miles of remote side roads to be discovered...or, just take a leisurely ride through the Monument. The Monument Vistors Center is 15 miles from here with 12 miles of flat roadway, then 3 miles or so of gentle hills. There is very little vehicle traffic on this road (FS 10)

Caving

There are over 300 known developed caves to explore at the Lava Beds National Monument.  Eagles Nest RV Park is just 15 miles from the visitor center. Also visit "Craig's Cave", a short 3 mile bike ride or walk from Eagle's Nest RV Park.

Fishing   

Medicine Lake (a crater lake) is just 23 miles from the park and provides anglers an opportunity to hook large trout.  Also, there are many other lakes and reservoirs within a 30-mile radius of the park. Our guests have been know to catch dinner!
