There are many areas to the park so I suggest stopping and getting a map. The Tower House historical area is a great place for a picnic.

This is our stomping ground and we grew up in this area...and we LOVE it. It does not feel like CA....more like WY. It is a growing area but is still filled great people and lovey sights. Lakes, streams, backpacking, horse back riding, camping, hunting and fishing. You name it. Not so much for city people but for the people that love country....it's wonderful.

Whiskeytown Lake is small and although the water appears pure and clean it's tainted by pollution, especially over in the Black Buttom area.
Shasta is presently experiencing some very low water levels due to the Powers that be that are increasing the flow downstream to the Farmers below. At least that's their excuse. Turning a majestic lake into a huge mud hole by the end of August when we could seriously use that water to fight our annual wildland fires each year.
Trinity is beautiful, but also suffers by the hands of the same Powers that be who are controlling the water levels at Lake Shasta. Trails are average around the lakes. They do tend to them when the budget allows.
