I have camped here many times and although the pricing is a bit difficult to figure out, it is nice. Great beach area too.

We visited this lake on a whim and are so glad we did. It is absolutely beautiful and tranquil. Ideal for a swim after hiking on Mount Shasta. The lake is very unspoiled and definitely worth a visit.

Very pleasant surprise ~ lots to do, picnicking, hiking, biking, swimming, playing in water toys. Renting boats of all kinds. Awesome view of Mt. Shasta. We'll have to return when we have more time.

My wife and I visited in early August, and it was quite warm, with daytime highs running into the mid-90s. I suspect the water was refreshing. We were there to hike around the lake, not for swimming or boating, both of which are options. If...More

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!
