Camping along the Shores of Shasta Lake - 2017 Rates

Shasta Lake National Forest Campgrounds around Lake Shasta offer a wide range of facilities. We have divided them into four groups:


Nearby Whiskeytown Recreation Area has additional campsites as does Castle Crags State Park. Included among the Shasta Lake campgrounds are several Group Campgrounds. An ample number of private campgrounds and RV parks are available around the lake and in nearby communities.

At some campgrounds, such as Ellery Creek boats can be moored along the shore close to your camp site. Other camping areas are simply dispersed camping sites with no permanent facilities.
