swim, boat, splash, or relax in the shade -- the beaches and campgrounds of Lake Siskiyou have a little for the whole family my only regret is that we didn't get there earlier in the day

North shore road leads to a place to kayak, trees add to shade in drying off. Driving to the end of the road dust does get airborne. There is room on the road in meetings up with other cars

Lake Siskiyou is an impoundment of the upper Sacramento River. It is circled by a great walking trail, easy access and parking. Views of Mt. Shasta are stellar. You can often capture the reflection of the mountain on the lake.

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.

This lake is a great place to spend a few hours or the better part of a day. In the summer the trail goes all around the lake (approx. 7 miles). Part of it is shaded so quite nice if it is a hot day...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!
