Ellery Creek is a beautiful, forested campground located on the McCloud Arm of Shasta Lake. When the lake is at its highest, to approximately 50 feet down, boats can be moored on the shore within sight of the campground making this a very popular place to camp. All sites have a picnic table, tent pads, fire rings, bear boxes, and paved parking spurs. Each site offers fair to good privacy and sufficient shade provided by the deciduous trees in the campground. There are two sets of vault toilets and water spigots throughout the camp. Each site has lockers for food, picnic tables, fire rings with grills, paved parking spurs and tent pads. There are no showers available or electric/water hookups for trailers. All sites at this campground can accommodate small trailers as well as tents. A public boat ramp is located approximately 4 miles away at Hirz Bay, but informal mooring is allowed at Ellery Creek if the water levels are sufficient. This area is popular for water skiing and jet skiing.
