  • This lake is a great place to spend a few hours or the better part of a day. In the summer the trail goes all around the lake (approx. 7 miles). Part of it is shaded so quite nice if it is a hot day (...  more »
  • Beautiful place for hiking, and it's much warmer than farther up the mountain. There weren't many other people there, and our dog had a great time!  more »
  • In the beautiful view from the campground that I went. Entrance is from the city of Shasta Lake almost halfway. You can to shoot ago Shasta Lake. Campground entrance fee to take the limit as the thought admission of thought, not free parking, barely find space and parked. And go to the shore and swim, it was crowded.

  • Busy campground with excellent lake and beautiful views of Mount Shasta-very breathtaking! I had fun camping here. Loved being able to rent a reasonably priced fishing boat to take advantage of the beautiful lake. My daughter and I also tried out the water obstacle course (for a fee) which was challenging but fun. Campfires at night were a good time and free with wood gathered from the nearby forest, which had tons of good branches laying around. My 4 star review mostly reflects the good memories and wonderful scenery, but there were also several cons including: loud fellow campers, an overpriced and inefficiently run camp store (no campfire wood available, which turned out not to be a huge problem, but I did have to wait 20 minutes to cash out a $4 packaged ice cream bar due to one archaic register and an overwhelmed kid staffer) and nickel & diming behavior (like charging extra for a kid who is part of the family and charging for 2 cats that stay put in the motor home). The bathrooms were also quite rustic and not the cleanest.
  • Amazing campground, great for tent camping. Facilities are close to the tent sites, and were clean and functional. Beautiful views of Mount Shasta, numerous trails to be lost in. Short walk to the lake from camp sites. Very quaint and quiet. Would definitely camp here again.
  • We have always enjoyed this camp when we had our travel trailer. We sold our trailer and thought we would rent one of their on-site trailers, which we did. We waited for housekeeping to finish their work on our rental. The floors were clean but that was about it. The toilet rim was full of piss. There was no silverware. Mouse turds were on the dish drain. Housekeeping corrected the toilet rim and silverware problems. Positives. Large deck. Decent bed. Appliances worked. I would still recommend it for a family with children as the resort is so much fun.
  • I love this place. It's not the completely quite, hidden away campground that some people might be looking for. If you are looking for easy, comfortable camping in a beautiful setting this place is great! It's perfect for families and group camping as it has everything you need including kayak rentals and a water jungle gym! You can also buy beer on tap! My favorite part is that dogs are welcome. It's a really nice anchor point to explore all that the region has to see such as Mt. Shasta, Siskiyou river, and Stewart Mineral springs. Tons of hiking and swimming. The weekends are a bit loud but if you can't beat them, join them :)
  • Lovely reflection of Mount Shastha can be seen from this place.
