Very beautiful lake with a view of Mount Shasta. You can just visit or they have a trail that goes all the way around the lake.

Beautiful place for hiking, and it's much warmer than farther up the mountain. There weren't many other people there, and our dog had a great time!

It was snowing when we went so we gave up part way around the lake for a hike, but what a beautiful and peaceful area with plenty of parking and places for picnics

The lakeside is very peaceful and serene. The water is absolutely clear and still. Surrounded by high ground on all sides, the place is quiet even for North Cal. Good spot for sunsets too.

Many walking trails, beaches (the water is pretty cold), and picnic areas. We saw boaters and kayakers on the lake. The water was quite low, but so pretty. I wanted to spend all day there just chilling.

Spent a lovely afternoon at the lake this week. The water was quite cool (as it is October), but refreshing and clean. A few stand-up paddlers, swimmers and boaters. Love this place!!
