Shasta Lake is the largest reservoir in California with a surface
area of 29,500 acres and a shoreline of 360 miles. Considered the
premier lake for boating, waterskiing, wakeboarding, jet skiing,
and fishing, Shasta Lake is also home to a wide variety of wildlife
species, including resident Bald Eagles.
Shasta's summer water temperatures
averages 77 degrees. The warm climate and beautiful surroundings
draw thousands of visitors to
Lake Shasta each year.
Three major rivers feed Shasta Lake: the
Sacramento, Pit, and McCloud. These, as well as the numerous smaller
streams and tributaries
lure both beginning and experienced anglers. Shasta Lake RV Resort
Campground is located on the Sacramento River Arm of the lake.
