Tips from locals
Lake Siskiyou is simply a gem. With a biking trail around the entire lake available, you can bike or hike with ease to explore. The lake has many public access points or you can visit Lake Siskiyou Camp Resort for a small day fee and enjoy their inflatable water park during select summer months!
Great little mountain lake with trails to walk, kayaks and SUPs to rent (only at campground beach). Best is to get there early in the morning, rent your flotation device, and head out to one of the more secluded state beaches or coves. If traveling with kiddos, they have an inflatable water park…
There it was – the clearest blue water I’d ever seen, trails and tall trees lining the shore, kids and adults joyfully playing on the beach and in the water, crowned by the majestic, snow-topped Mount Shasta.
Beautiful Alpine lake where guests can enjoy a tranquil view of Mt. Shasta and clear, cool water for water sports and fishing.

“Perfect for hikes of all abilities or simply drive up, park and open a chair! Castle Lake has it all! Tip: Trail to the left from Parking Lot guides you up to the southern side of the lake for stunning views and a secret spot at Heart Lake.”

“Pluto's Cave is a partially collapsed lava tube on the northern outskirts of Mount Shasta. Its main entrance is located close to the 99-97 Cutoff. A pretty loop through interesting, volcanic, high desert terrain. Below ground, one can explore Pluto Cave, an ancient lava tube that extends over a mile under ground.”

“San Francisco Chronicle-featured Denny Bar should be on your must-eat list while in Etna. My favorites include their cheese curds + a gin and tonic when out with friends, and their pizzas are my husband’s choice, and their steaks + pasta are wonderful. No better eatery + cocktails between SF and Portland. ”

“Fun park with a cool vibe, many different walks of life here, just doing there thing in funky Mt Shasta. The real attraction is the spring headwaters of the upper Sacramento River, some considering it to be sacred healing waters (some just filling up their water bottles due to it being perfect spring water ;). Cool playground for kids, an excellent spot to take a picnic.”
