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.

Rented two double kayaks for the afternoon and enjoyed the view of Mount Shasta and the serenity of the lake. Early in the season so we were just about the only people out enjoying this beautiful spot. Kayaks truly could be update, one had a leak, so pretty wet at the end of the paddle. All in all an enjoyable... More

This lake makes a beautiful front drop to Mt. Shasta. On a calm, clear day, the mountain is reflected perfectly in the lake, making a gorgeous picture. The lake itself is clean and usually clear, but also usually quite chilly. The beach area is pretty well tended and there are places to rent canoes, paddle boards, motor boats and beach... More

A beautiful lake in a gorgeous setting. Fishing, swimming or laying on the beach with an incredible view of Mt Shasta... wonderful!

We thoroughly enjoyed our 7 mile hike around Lake Siskiyou. I was especially proud of our two young kids for completing the loop around the Lake. We started at the parking lot off the WA Barr Road just before the Mount Shasta Resort parking lot and hiked around the Lake. It was a very easy trail with no elevation, and... More

We go every July for the past 8 years and I have to say it is a highlight of our year. The kids love it. Perfect for every type of camper....from renting cabins to dropping your trailer for a week. Great general store, clean showers, laundry, nice beach, restaurant for extra fun, and they will even deliver pizza to your... More

We spent 4 nights in the beautiful Mount Shasta Resort. We were so lucky to stay in one of the chalets that had a lake view of this gorgeous lake. My husband would scoot down the hill and capture some early morning shots when the lake was smooth as glass. We enjoyed sitting on our deck and just enjoy the... More
