Sep 24, 2015 - Lakehead CA – Shasta-Trinity National Forest - Hirz Bay Campground

One night stop over here on Lake Shasta. This is a huge lake, but the drought in California has really brought the water level down. We do have a view of the lake from our campsite, but it’s easy to see where the water level should be compared to where it is now. There are only 2 campsites being used tonight, but I bet this place is really hopping when the water level is up. They also had a forest fire near here recently, which makes for fewer visitors to the area. All of California seems to be a tinderbox right now.

Oct 12, 2011 - Gimme' a whiskey, shasta

We are at the shores of Shasta Lake. We both swear this was called Whiskey-Shasta lake 35 years ago. But again y'all know about memory losses as we get older. Interesting day was had by this vagabond couple. We went to the doctor. Shirley's 4th visit on the trip and my first. Ear infection (what did you say?) for her and a sinus infection for moi. Nice experience and pretty fast too. Got the drugs we need and are back on the road. Decided to take it easy today and head just 20 miles north to a campground with a laundry. Even us hearty...

Aug 12, 2007 - Lake Shasta, CA

Tonight we stayed at Holiday Harbor in Lake Shasta. We wanted to check out the houseboats here. Nicole loved the RV park because of the playground and tons of kids right accross from our site. She made a new friend. The water was really low, not great for swimming or lake walks so we decided to "hit the road". Plus, internet connection was bad. Onward we go!
