Overview

Dekkas Rock Campground provides scenic views of the mountainous shoreline from the McCloud Arm of Lake Shasta. This group campground offers sites adjacent to the lake and is open for reservations year-round.

Natural Features:

Shasta-Trinity is the largest national forest in California with a diverse landscape encompassing five wilderness areas, hundreds of mountain lakes and 6,278 miles of streams and rivers.

Lake Shasta sits at an elevation of 1,067 feet, with 365 miles of shoreline punctuated by steep mountains blanketed in manzanita and evergreens. A snow-capped Mount Shasta, the second-tallest mountain in the Cascade Range, looms in the distance.

Recreation:

Hikers can access the trailhead for the 1-mile Hirz Bay Trail at the camp. This trail is for hikers only. The Hirz Bay public boat ramp is nearby and offers access for both motorized and non-motorized boats.

Lake Shasta offers excellent fishing for trout, catfish, Chinook salmon, crappie, bluegill, white sturgeon, brown bullhead and bass. Water skiing is also a popular pastime.

Facilities:

The group camp will accommodate up to 60 people. Sites are adjacent to the water, but lake levels drop as the summer progresses.

The facility provides 8 large tables, 2 large pedestal grills, 1 large family barbecue grill, 2 campfire rings and 4 unpaved parking spurs.

An additional unpaved parking lot with 8 spaces is provided for boat trailers and overflow use.

Drinking water and vault toilets are available. Bear-proof food lockers are provided.

Nearby Attractions:

Lake Shasta Caverns are also located on the McCloud Arm of Shasta Lake in an area known as the Grey Rocks. Tours are given daily at this privately owned facility.

The nearby Hirz Mountain Lookout offers panoramic views of Mt. Shasta, Mt. Lassen and the surrounding area at an elevation of 3,500 feet.
