Shasta Lake is one of the largest lakes in California, USA and is an ideal spot for a variety of outdoor activities, including watersports, camping, fishing and hiking. Shasta Lake is part of the Shasta-Trinity National Forest, which covers over 2 million acres of breathtaking wilderness in the Cascade Range of northern California. It is fed by three main rivers: the McCloud River, the Sacramento River and the Pit River. Shasta Lake provides a stunning backdrop for anglers, campers and picnickers, with fascinating views of Mount Shasta and its surrounding area. With numerous inlets and islands, the lake creates countless opportunities for exploring and sightseeing by boat. Explore the sunken Tule Elums beneath its waters or take a cruise around its popular ice-clogged arm. One of its most picturesque spots is the McCloud Bridge, which spans the lake and provides a perfect backdrop for photos.
