Welcome to one of the most beautiful places you could ever hope to visit or live. Susanville, in far northern California, where the Sierra Mountains and the Cascade Range come together to form an uncompromised view of the very best of what the state has to offer.
The City of Susanville is the only incorporated city, and the county seat, of Lassen County. We are located ninety miles northwest of Reno, Nevada and one hundred miles east of Red Bluff, California at an elevation of 4,200 feet. Susanville has a fully accredited hospital, a municipal airport and city managed golf course.
Residents of the city enjoy both forested mountains and desert environments, which offer multiple choices of recreation activities.
We are minutes away from Eagle Lake and the famous Eagle Lake trout, the internationally known Biz Johnson Trail, fishing in the Susan River, hunting, hiking, and a number of bicycling trails. If you enjoy the four seasons, you will love Susanville. In Susanville, the air is clean, the water is pure, the people are friendly and the cost of living is reasonable.
