Overview

Lakeshore East sits along the shore of the Sacramento Arm of Shasta Lake. The facility is partially shaded by oak and pine and provides some privacy between sites with an undergrowth of grass and raspberry bushes.

Lakeshore East is easily accessible from I-5 and offers direct access to the lake from a number of sites. Walk-ins are accepted 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.
