The cost of the bridge was $2.8 Million, funding was obtained from the McConnell Foundation, The State of California and federal stimulus funds.

    My wife and I visited in early August, and it was quite warm, with daytime highs running into the mid-90s. I suspect the water was refreshing. We were there to hike around the lake, not for swimming o...  more »

    Beautiful lake, very close to Mt. Shasta. This is a great lake for fishing and swimming. They have a beach area that people can lay out and swim. You can rent boats there as well. This lake is great e...  more »

    Love this place; has it all. I get the frustration with not getting a live person or a call back, and that's a problem, work through it and keep calling, preferably in the morning, because it's so worth it. Roomy, wooded sites; store; restaurant; video arcade; outdoor movies; water toys; a serene, calm lake. This is family camping at its finest. We spend ten days here early each summer and love it. If my kids continue, they'll be third generation of spending a week at Lake Sis. This is a throw back to the old family vacation.

    Check in was very disorganized. I was told to wait behind a Woman who kept claiming that she was "not wanting to be a b***h but."... When I turned around the guy that arrived after me was being checked in at the other window. "Whose next" would have been good. Be aware if you have children that neither 15mph speed limit or the stop signs are observed very often. Also signage is very poor for getting to the resort - had to guess a few times. Location itself is spectacular - great for Kayaking! No towing on Lake so very peaceful and safe. Thank you for that๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Called to book, got a "our phones are now manned 7 days a week" message. Took two days to return our call and acknowledge our phone and online booking request. Once they did, we were told we could have the night we wanted at a discounted rate. We would be called once the reservation was confirmed. Two days go by, we call them. Nope, "new" booking requirements, must book a cabin for two nights, "Sorry, can't help you, maybe the motel down the street can put you up". Disappointed with this 'new' minimum requirement, as the place came highly recommended by friends, we changed our plans to book two nights there. Called back, left another message on their machine . . . nothing . . . crickets . . .

    Until this place gets a online reservation system in place and can expedite check in stay away. Lost reservation spend 2 hrs waiting. Other parties check in lost the down payment amount had to show proof from their email. And still took a half hour in line after being paid in full prior to arrival. A true mess
