Clean accommodations at a super cheap price.. Looks like the units we stayed at were built many many years ago... Nice views of the lake. The cookhouse restaurant does a great job for dinner and breakfast and is reasonably priced.

My husband and I came for 4 days Sun-Wed. From the minute we pulled up to check in to check out everything was absolute perfection! This is the perfect location on the lake, smack in the middle and easy to get to the entire lake. We got a King room and a slip for our pontoon boat. Parking was easy,... More

We used this property only for a first-time family houseboat rental, for 9 people, from three generations. The youngest generation (ages 5, 6, and 11) had zero complaints. We elders can't really complain either because a good time was had by all, and others have not seemed to experience some of the staffing issues that we did. More later. We... More

We had a family get together of 14 (5 young kids and 9 adults) and rented the Grand Sierra houseboat from Bridge Bay for 4 days, 3 nights. We all had a blast.

We just got back from our houseboat trip at Shasta Lake. Bridge Bay was awesome! All the employees were so helpful, accommodating, and very friendly. The houseboat had everything we needed. If we forgot something the store had it! We will definitely return to this resort again.
