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.

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
