Jun 5, 2013 - Shasta Lake

We left JGW Rv park and headed north about 25 miles to Shasta Lake, the lake formed by the damming of the Sacramento River. We stayed at Antlers RV Park which was a very nice spot with level, large, 50 amp sites; necessary to run our two air conditioning units given that it was 107 degrees!!!! The lake is lovely but the water level was 70 ft. below its “normal”. The lake is a National Recreation Area so there were numerous boat launch sites but because the water level was so low, the launches sloped dramatically down to the water and there...

For desert they served two types of cheesecake, chocolate chip cheesecake (very much like a chocolate moose) & Tuxedo cheesecake,...

Sep 18, 2007 - Lake Shasta Caverns, CA

Today we headed north on I-5 to the Shasta Lake area. The red clay lake is much larger than we expected, the water is green and due to the changing water level, it's banks are very steep and usable. We did not realize until we arrived that it is a man-made lake from the Sacramento River. There are four "fingers" and numerous flooded towns, bridges, and old railroads underwater. Would have made for really awesome scuba diving! But not today...today we went into the Shasta Lake Caverns. Privately owned and discovered in 1878 by two friends...
