Had a mens' retreat over the last weekend in September. The campground was about one third full. We stayed in a "cabin" that supposedly slept 6. Not quite. First, it was a mobile home. Second, it would legitimately sleep five: two in a queen bed,...More

We had a nice ride out to Lake Siskiyou, this is a beautiful spot for a sack lunch. The beach is kind of rocky, not much sand. There were a lot of kayakers on the water.

Great little resort. We were able to rent kayaks by the hour and they were very nice. Everything was clean. The gal at the little snack bar was super friendly and helpful.

The lake is located behind the chalets at the Mt. Shasta Resort. There is a hiking trail that takes you around the lake (approximately 7 miles). Many locals frequent the lake. There is an abundance of wild life including bears, and rattle snakes so some...More

Is there anywhere to access the beach that allows plenty of room for a family gathering that is also easy terrain to access? We didn't want to pay hourly for the recreation area as most of the party only wants to access the beach/water, not toys.

Hi there, Does anyone know if one can rent jet skis ( and get a lesson on how to use them) on the lake? Can kids drive a jet ski or must it be an adult driving? My 12 and 14 yr old kids really want to try a jet ski. Thanks in advance!

As promised, I was near there today & checked with the staff. They do not permit jet skies on the lake. They have other boating options but not what you are after. Hope this helps!
