Siskiyou Lake in Mt. Shasta is a local favorite for relaxing, boating, fishing, swimming, picnics, and camping. Actives galore await you there.
I’ve visited Lake Siskiyou many times throughout my life, and had the opportunity just a few weeks ago to spend time at it again. While enjoying the cool breeze on my friends houseboat, I was taking in the views and was suddenly aware of just how majestic and hidden this lake was. Resting at the foot of Mt. Shasta, completely tucked away from town and the eyes of anyone who didn’t know to look for her.
A short drive from town takes you past the Mt. Shasta Golf Resort and to the entrance of the lake. Admission is $1 per person, which is a small price to pay for a day full of endless adventures and memories to be made. Along with obvious activities such as swimming, boating, fishing, and common water sports, Lake Siskiyou also has a wonderful campground and a hiking trail that takes you all the way around the lake!
Most locals have the tradition to stop by the convenience store located in the campgrounds, and grab a soft serve ice cream cone to top off their day. With $3 per Ice Cream cone (piled high!) and $1 for admission, that makes $4 well spent on unforgettable day at Lake Siskiyou.
