Shasta Lake is a stunning lake surrounded by mountains and formed by the Sacramento, McCloud, Squaw and Pit Rivers. Second only in size to Lake Tahoe, its mighty waters are held back by the Shasta Dam, and boasts miles of beautiful shoreline.
Popular for relaxing getaways and for water sports, Shasta Lake has many activities on offer. On the Sacramento arm visitors can take in the great views of Mount Lassen or cruise on a boat in the developed part of the lake. Fly fishing is great in the Pit arm area, while the Shasta Caverns at the McCloud arm of the lake are truly unique. The caverns are underground and can only be reached by boat and stopping off at the Holiday Harbor Marina.
Swimming is a fun way to explore the lake, or try your hand at water skiing or fishing -- the waters are popular for catching bass and trout.
