Shasta – Cascade – Trinity California Camping & RVing Information

A year-round outdoor enthusiast’s paradise without the crowds, the Shasta Cascade is home to every kind of recreation. This region offers a scenic venue for camping, hiking, road biking, mountain biking, hunting, fly fishing, swimming, boating, mountaineering, climbing, and waterskiing spring through fall. Winter brings snowshoeing, snowboarding, and downhill skiing. There are seven national forests in the Shasta Cascade area as well as the Lava Beds National Monument.

The centerpiece of the region is Mount Shasta, the second highest volcano in the continental United Sates. Mount Shasta is not connected to any other nearby mountains and rises abruptly an impressive 14,000 feet into the air. On a clear day it is visible from 150 miles away. To the south of Mt. Shasta lies man-made Shasta Lake, a mecca for house-boating and waterskiing with 370 miles of hidden shoreline to explore. Another gem of the area is Lassen Volcanic Park. In addition to Lassen Peak, the remarkable hydrothermal features of the park include roaring fumaroles (steam and volcanic-gas vents), thumping mud pots, boiling pools and steaming ground. Fishing is excellent on nearby expansive Eagle Lake, the second largest natural lake in California, known for its huge trout. For a look at the wild horses of Northeastern California, take a drive on the Buckhorn Back Country Byway, where visitors

can see not only horses, but also hawks and golden eagles, deer and pronghorn antelope, and the beautiful scenery of the high desert of the Golden State.

Arts, music, museums and other urban amenities come alive in the cities and towns of the Shasta Cascade region. The civic “capital” of the area is Redding, the largest city of the region with a population of 89,861, according to the 2010 Census. Redding is proud of its 200+ restaurants that cater to all tastes. Other cities and towns include Alturas, Biggs, Chico, Dunsmuir, Mount Shasta, Red Bluff, Weaverville, Oroville, Weed, Fall River Mills, Burney, and Yreka. Chico is home to the world renowned Sierra Nevada Brewery. Weaverville contains the oldest, still in use Chinese Temple in California inside the Joss House State Park, and the Sam Lee Folk Art Center where you can view and purchase local and regional art.
