“AMAIZING”
Reviewed 27 August 2012

This is our stomping ground and we grew up in this area...and we LOVE it. It does not feel like CA....more like WY. It is a growing area but is still filled great people and lovey sights. Lakes, streams, backpacking, horse back riding, camping, hunting and fishing. You name it. Not so much for city people but for the people that love country....it's wonderful.

“Whiskeytown-Shasta-Trinity National Recreation Area”
Reviewed 22 August 2012

Whiskeytown Lake is small and although the water appears pure and clean it's tainted by pollution, especially over in the Black Buttom area.
Shasta is presently experiencing some very low water levels due to the Powers that be that are increasing the flow downstream to the Farmers below. At least that's their excuse. Turning a majestic lake into a huge mud hole by the end of August when we could seriously use that water to fight our annual wildland fires each year.
Trinity is beautiful, but also suffers by the hands of the same Powers that be who are controlling the water levels at Lake Shasta. Trails are average around the lakes. They do tend to them when the budget allows.

“Nice water fall”
Reviewed 18 February 2012

We hiked to Whiskeytown Falls. A very nice cascading water fall. The hike isn't to long, but the trail did have some ice areas in February.

“Clean crisp water”
Reviewed 19 January 2012

Great place to spend the day, good camping and fantastic for a picnic. The water is a bit choppy for skiing, but sailing and tubing are amazing
