Whiskeytown National Recreation Area, located in northern California, is a unit of the National Park Service. The 42,000-acre park is situated eight miles west of Redding at the northern edge of the Sacramento river valley, in the foothills of the Klamath Mountains. The park was established in 1965 as part of the Central Valley project. Whiskeytown Lake provides a dependable water supply, flood control, hydroelectric power, and numerous recreational opportunities. Each year, approximately 800,000 visitors come to enjoy the unique experiences that only can be had at Whiskeytown.
We invite you to explore the park's natural beauty, majestic views, and abundant wildlife via kayak or paddle board while participating in a ranger-guided tour.
Visitors who are wearing flip-flops or are barefoot will not be allowed to participate for safety reasons!
Whiskeytown National Recreation Area runs Kayak and Stand Up Paddle board ranger led tours from Memorial day weekend to Labor day weekend.
