Summer Activities

In addition to the recreational resources on the camp site itself such as: volleyball, ping pong, bird watching, and nature trails, there are many off site resources as well.

Castle Lake offers the beauty of a crystal clear glacial carved mountain lake teeming with fish. The lake is great for fishing, swimming, canoeing, rock climbing or simply relaxing in the sun with your favorite book.

Heart Lake is located a short hike just above Castle Lake. With breathtaking views of Mt. Shasta and its relaxing serenity, Heart Lake is well worth the one mile walk.

Little Scott Lake can be reached by following a rugged three mile hike through the canyon, which challenges the more adventuresome. The trail takes you through meadows and forest where one might even hear the call of a Spotted Owl.

Of course there is wildflower identification and nature photography too. 

In the nearby town of Mt. Shasta City, the Mt. Shasta Ski Park provides many activities such as: mountain bike riding, climbing and summer concerts. You can obtain additional information about the surrounding areas by contacting the Mountain Shasta Visitors Bureau or The Chamber of Commerce.




Winter Activities

Shasta Camp is located at 4,800 feet thus providing for a lovely winter wonderland for playing in the snow and building snowmen. With the many trails surrounding the Castle Lake area, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing becomes a beautiful and enchanting experience. 

The Mt. Shasta Ski Park is also located nearby. During the winter months, Castle Lake often freezes over allowing for ice skating and ice fishing. Contact the House of Ski & Board for current conditions &/or rentals.
