Everyone is so nice, friendly and helpful...from the gals in the store to the folks on the docks. Our houseboat was very clean and ready for us at the scheduled departure time... Can't wait to go again next year!!!

This was a Birthday trip that we booked an extra site for friends. And they ended up unable to come. So we canceled 1 site 2 days before, they don’t refund $ they re-rent your space. So we asked them whichever the best spot is we will take that. We get there and they rented us spot 11 (full sun & small )and re-rent 22 on the water side(really?) they do not switch sites even tho they are open because they want to re-rent therm (x2 $$from people who cancel) poorly ran at the campground ! They also knocked on our Rv door and called my cell phone while we were at the dock loading the boat to tell us we had 30 min to leave because the next people were waiting to get in (wow never had that before)

We called and then traveled down to the Harbor for our same day half day ski boat rental only to find out that there had been a mistake made and we would not be getting a boat after all. They tired to book us a reservation at a neighboring harbor, but that harbor (Bridge Bay) rented out the boat from under us before we could arrive--very fishy. So when we contacted Holiday about our reservation mix up they more than made up for it the next day with a new reservation with them and we ended up having the very best experience on the lake. Thank you Toy Box and Holiday Harbor! You will always be our first choice when renting boats at Shasta Lake. .

We booked a houseboat for a week and a ski-boat for a day from holiday harbor and it was the best vacation we had in years.

Pros:
- Customer service went above and beyond expectations
- Assisted docking (if you are unsure of your skills)
- Free grey water removal
- Shuttle to and from your car
- Prime location not too far from the center of the lake
- Ski-boat was perfect for inner tubing shenanigans
- Houseboat ran great and gave us the best sleep we had in years

Cons:
- Gas prices were not the best on the lake (bridge bay was cheaper, but not by much)

Other thoughts:
- Plan in advance, we planned 3 months ahead of arrival
- Our group split up expenses to keep the price shock down
- Gas was close to $6 mid July on the lake, so you want to factor that in to your budget
- Be sure to buy supplies out in town such as food and drinks
- Invite people who get along if you are planning on staying in a houseboat together
- Look up safety and regulations (rangers/sheriffs are everywhere and take their job serious)
- Bring beading such as blankets, sheets and pillow cases (pillows were on board)

Holiday Harbor has always been welcoming and friendly. Every couple years we usually will rent a houseboat from them. Always friendly and helpful. Would and have recommended them to other people. Always fun on lake shasta.
