Great way to see lake shasta and the caves as we were passing through. They were even nice enough to watch our dog so the whole family could go on the tour! That is full service.

The walk to the lake can be very uncomfortable or even not advisable if you are not in shape or it is hot. The lake is very low (July 2014) and getting lower as the drought continues. That makes the walk longer. Very steep uphill. The business does not "warn" or state the reality of the difficulty. If you can't... More

not only do you get a Cavern tour, but also a boat and bus ride! From the gift shop , take a short hike (depending on time of year and water level) down to the waters edge, board a pontoon boat and motor across the lake very fun! we had a very knowledgeable guide through the Caverns, awesome formations. Very... More

It's a workout from start to finish, but a natural marvel you cannot miss if you are near. You won't stop saying "Wow!". Hard to take pictures in the near dark caves, but can always buy a nice postcard at the gift shop if you don't have a good camera. Bring lots of water and grab a hold of stairway... More

We were on our way from Eugene to Sacramento when we stopped in for a visit. The cost you pay gets you the boat ride, bus ride and tour. From start to finish it is about 2 hrs. Our 3 yr old did all the stairs in the cave. There are hundreds of steps. The view is beautiful and the... More

Lake Shasta Caverns was a very different experience for me. The fun doubles because of the ferry and the bus we took to reach the caverns entrance. The entrance was $24 per person, which was kind of okay. It is a one time visit. I don't think I or my wife would want to go there or any caverns again... More

I attended the cavern trip alone while trying to kill time around the Redding area. The short ferry trip across Shasta Lake is gorgeous and I just wanted to jump into the beautiful waters. The staff was very polite. The tour wasn't arduous for an active and fit person but at least one person on my tour struggled with the... More

Another cavern on a long list of cavern tours. We just can't get enough caverns. LOL this one comes with a bonus, a ferry ride across the lake. Once on the other side a bus takes you up to the top where the entrance to the cavern is. This cavern is beautiful, a wide variety of big rooms and long... More
