We stayed in the town of Mt. Shasta and were not even aware of this lake, which is only minutes outside of town. Found it on the first day of the trip and went back almost every day afterwards. Walked across the amazing walking bridge, hiked on the trail, took photos, had a picnic (yes there are picnic tables), drew... More

The lake was so close to Shasta town. I love the lake since it wasn't that crowded at all on a Friday afternoon. Swimming was great and there were beaches for picnic. This is perfect for a family vacation!

In the middle of nature, with a hike winding all the way around it, sits Lake Siskiyou. Surrounded by campgrounds and endless outdoor activities, Lake Siskiyou is the locals go-to for a quick summer cool down and a nice family picnic.

Such a fun place! Lots of activities to choose from! Very kid-friendly. If you plan on renting a boat (they have pontoon/patio boats and fishing boats), schedule in advance. We did 4 hours on a patio boat and that was perfect timing for our active 5 year old boy, enough time for swimming and fishing and we finished up just... More

As a kid we stayed in the campground and used it as a jumping off point to fish at nearby Castle, Gumboot and Toad lakes. Never had any luck at Siskiyou proper, but it was fun. Now I have went back with my family to the beach for a day visit and realized just how beautiful the view is of... More

An amazing picturesque view of Mt. Shasta. I couldn't stop taking pictures. The kids had a blast in the Splash Zone and we rented a Paddle Board and tried it for the first time. Everybody that worked there was so nice and friendly. They gave us extra time on the paddle board and in the Splash Zone. Great prices on... More

Pretty Lake where you can get a view of the Lake in the foreground and Mountain in the background - Camping has fire pits, store, large camping areas that can be private and cabins for rent too.

If you go to Mount Shasta you really have to go here because you can swim while taking in a stunning view of the snowy Mountain. The lake has a great public beach to cool off in and you can rent boats. The big downside is there is no lifeguard so be very careful with kids and have them wear... More
