Camp Shasta

General Info

Camp Shasta is about 72 miles east of Redding near the dam at Lake Britton. In a wooded setting at 2,750 feet elevation, midsummer days are warm, and most nights are cool.

Both the lake and nearby streams offer excellent fishing for a variety of species including brown and rainbow trout, smallmouth and largemouth mouth bass, black and white crappie, and more.  The area is also known for excellent game hunting.

From Camp Shasta, you can venture to nearby Ferry’s Crossing picnic area and beach or Burney Falls (both pictured in the slideshow), hike a portion of the Pacific Crest Trail, or even visit Lassen Volcanic National Park.

Saturday, September 21 – Saturday, October 5, 2024

IMPORTANT:  All access to the waterfall and fall’s pool area at McArthur Burney Falls MSP will be closed due to reconstruction of the main trail starting in early April through the entire 2024 season.  Additionally, CalTrans will be preforming a major Highway 89 rehabilitation project during the same period which will significantly add traffic congestion, delays and intermittent traffic closures near the park entrance.

Water Sports Advisory

Several water bodies in the southwestern United States, including California, have become infested with the non-native Quagga mussel in recent years. This species is very invasive and, once introduced, can proliferate rapidly. The spread of these mussels is very damaging to the native ecosystem and ultimately causes significant harm to water collection and distribution systems, including power generation facilities. Fortunately, they are not currently known to exist in any PG&E reservoirs. The biggest risk factor for the spread of this species is bringing watercraft or water-related equipment from infested waters. If you are planning to bring a boat or other water-borne equipment to a PSEA facility, find out more about how you can help prevent the spread of this species by going to the Department of Fish and Game website at https://wildlife.ca.gov/Conservation/Invasives/Quagga-Mussels.
