Memories to Make on Shasta Lake

We are now booking for 2024, so it is officially time to start planning your next getaway to Shasta Lake, nestled in the beautiful Trinity National Forest in northern California.

In 2023, the water level reached 98% capacity, which is the fullest it's been in 4 years!

We offer houseboat rentals at 3 marinas on Shasta Lake. Each have different houseboat options, so how to choose? 

Bridge Bay Marina:

  • Central on the lake
  • Smaller houseboat options: Cascade, Summit, Grand Sierra, and Grand Sierra EX accommodate 8-13 people
  • 2 night minimum, no set schedule

Silverthorn & Jones Valley Marinas:

  • East lake
  • Larger houseboat options, some with private staterooms and luxury amenities such as wet bars and hot tubs, and can accommodate 20+ people!
  • 3 night weekend, 4 night midweek, 7 night rental increments
  • *Some houseboats will have a 7 night minimum in the summer season

What do you do while you're out there?

Anything you can think of to have fun on the water: swimming, paddleboarding, kayaking, watersports (water skiing, tubing, waterboarding).

Hiking along the shoreline. There are a few trails, but you can explore virtually anywhere along the lake!

There are a few sightseeing opportunities as well: stop at the Shasta Caverns, slip down natural waterslides, spot a waterfall...the fun is limitless.

Shasta Lake is also the top fishing lake in California! Top catches include land-locked King Salmon, Rainbow and Brown Trout, Small and Largemouth Bass, Spotted Bass, Catfish, Panfish, and Sturgeon.
