About Lake Shasta

Shasta Lake was formed by the second largest man made dam in the United States. Northern California’s majestic Trinity National Forest provides unparalleled forest scenery while snow capped Mt. Shasta and the surrounding Cascades complete the picture postcard-perfect vista.

The 3,000-acre lake has landed a spot on the list of top house boating destinations in the nation. The 360-mile area around the lake includes gorgeous waterfalls, secluded hiking, and awe-inspiring caverns. The deep blue waters stay a comfortable 78 degrees all year, and the daytime temperature in this part of California hovers around 100 degrees in summer. People of all ages enjoy the outdoor adventures Lake Shasta has to offer.


Lake Shasta is extremely popular with anglers. It’s impossible to find a better place to fish in all of Northern California. In addition to natural reproduction, the California Department of Fish and Game maintains annual stocking. Varieties of trout and bass are the most frequently caught. You may also catch salmon, crappie, bluebill, or one of more than 20 other species.

Water Sports

The smooth glass waters of Lake Shasta make it perfect for all kinds of water sports. Glide with ease while water skiing or jet skiing. Enjoy wakeboarding, tubing, windsurfing, and more. Swimming is always an option, and the coolish water is a refreshing contrast on hot summer days.
