The nearby Hirz Mountain Lookout offers panoramic views of Mt. Shasta, Mt. Lassen and the surrounding area at an elevation of 3,500 feet.
The nearest public boat ramp is 4 miles away at Hirz Bay. Boat rentals and fuel are available at nearby lakefront resorts. Shasta Lake is popular for power and non-motorized boating, fishing and water skiing.
