Great little resort. We were able to rent kayaks by the hour and they were very nice. Everything was clean. The gal at the little snack bar was super friendly and helpful.

The lake was so close to Shasta town. I love the lake since it wasn't that crowded at all on a Friday afternoon. Swimming was great and there were beaches for picnic. This is perfect for a family vacation!

In the middle of nature, with a hike winding all the way around it, sits Lake Siskiyou. Surrounded by campgrounds and endless outdoor activities, Lake Siskiyou is the locals go-to for a quick summer cool down and a nice family picnic.

Hi there, Does anyone know if one can rent jet skis ( and get a lesson on how to use them) on the lake? Can kids drive a jet ski or must it be an adult driving? My 12 and 14 yr old kids really want to try a jet ski. Thanks in advance!

As promised, I was near there today & checked with the staff. They do not permit jet skies on the lake. They have other boating options but not what you are after. Hope this helps!
