Looking for a California vacation rental that is larger than life? Then Shasta Lake vacation rentals are just for you. It's the second largest lake in California with a surface area of 29,500 acres. Popular recreational activities at Shasta Lake include mountain-biking, hiking, fishing, boating, and hunting, camping and water-skiing. The lake is known for its house-boating, and house-boats are available for rental year round. Lake Shasta is also a world renowned lake for its fishing. Species available include bass, catfish, crappie, trout, sturgeon and others.

Shasta State Historic Park is a great place to visit. In 1849, Shasta, the "Queen City" of northern mines in the Klamath Range, served as a main shipping point for supplies and money between the mines and San Francisco. The Shasta County Courthouse in the park is filled with historical exhibits, artifacts and an outstanding collection of historic California art. Brick ruins of the business district of this gold-rush city remain for visitors to see.
