Shasta Lake Camping


Shasta Lake National Forest Campgrounds around Lake Shasta offer a wide range of facilities.

Some of the campgrounds offer reservations while a good number of them are first-come, first-served. Most have at least partial views of the lake and are close enough to walk to the shore when water levels are high.

For convenience we have listed Shasta Lake campgrounds in three groups:
