Lake Siskiyou is a reservoir, so it's not one of these pristine mountain lakes full of snow melt. Depending on its level, which can vary a great deal, it can be decent or actually stinky and mucky. It's always a beautiful place for a walk, though.

Lake Siskiyou is a gorgeous, quiet spot near Mt Shasta, CA. Boat rentals, wild trout fishing, hiking and scenic beauty. There are not too many places on the planet that compare! Many natural lakes with easy access nearby. One of the greatest golf courses in the north state within walking distance! A place you don't want to miss out on!

This is a great lake to fish for trout. Heavily stocked you can park usually super close to shore. Its also a great place to take easy hikes to go for a swim or just sit back around sunset and watch bald eagles catch fish. I love this spot

It's quiet solemn. Not the prettiest lake I have seen, but adequate. You can see Mt. Shasta from the blue bridge. That is a nice view.

After dinner, I took the short drive from Mount Shasta city to Lake Siskiyou. Lake Siskiyou is a pretty large lake in the area with fishing, boating, swimming, and other water play opportunities. There are various campgrounds and lodging around the lake. Lake Siskiyou is technically a reservoir. There are forested areas around the lake. One can also find places... More

Beautiful area. The Rec room could be rented for a very reasonable price. Seats 50. Lake offers hiking, camping, boating, fishing, and picnicking.

We did not stay at the lake, but reserved the group "party" building for the day. It was large, clean and well appointed. The view of the lake is good and it is a brief walk to the water. Lake Siskiyou is not a natural lake but rather part of flood and water control. The level was down when we... More

My wife and I stopped here while on vacation because it was 100 degrees out and we wanted to take a dip. Perfect choice! Not far off the Hwy 5 which was convenient since we were on our way home. I think it was one dollar for entry with car which is outstanding. Walked down to the lake and there... More

Very narrow road -- got very lost! Access to lake was not very well marked! Visitors Center information was not at all helpful.

This was my first trip to Lake Siskiyou and spent several days here. It was so relaxing. Plenty of hiking, fishing, fly fishing or relaxing by the river with a book. Very romantic if you want to share it with someone.
