Castle Lake and Gumboot Campgrounds Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The towering white peak of Mount Shasta stands center stage in far north-central California, gathering attention from every direction and vantage point. And while there are great outdoor opportunities around and on this magnificent sleeping giant, the Shasta-Trinity Forest off its western shoulder holds a treasury of lakes, streams, and glacial formations.

There’s no camping on the lake, but sites are available less than a mile back down the mountain, keeping you close enough for frequent jaunts to the crystal waters, and hiking trails abound throughout the region. Winter brings visitors to Castle Lake for snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and ice skating, and anglers arrive for some of the best ice fishing around."
