With the substantial amount of rain the region has received this winter and spring, the water levels are up and enticing.
Not to mention summer is just around the corner!

It's time to start planning your houseboat vacation in the Shasta Cascade region and enjoy an experience to remember.

Depending on which houseboat you choose, you can be sliding down two or three story waterslides into the cool, refreshing lake water.

Spend some time sipping on your favorite drinks while enjoying lake views from a Jacuzzi featured on the top floor or hop on a personal watercraft and hit some wakes.

A houseboat vacation is an all-time favorite family outing, as well as a great bonding experience and can include a reunion with your favorite friends.

The deep blue bodies of water surrounded by breathtaking mountain scenery with evergreen pines makes the Shasta Cascade Region's lakes an appealing escape from the chaos of everyday life.
Relaxation in secluded coves is a luxury offered at each of the famous houseboating lakes, Shasta Lake, Trinity Lake, and Lake Oroville.

Explore the shorelines in the style that fits your adventurous side.
Each lake offers multiple watercrafts including ski boats, deck cruisers, and personal watercrafts.
It's not just the scenery that makes the houseboating experience phenomenal, it's also the prize fishing that takes place in depths of the deep blue waters. Try your luck while fishing for trout, bass, King Salmon, and much more.

If you're looking for some land activity, the lakes offer numerous hiking and biking trails, or tour the Lake Shasta Caverns or Shasta Dam.

Shasta Lake, the Houseboat Capital of the world, earns its stripes perhaps because of the 370 miles of shoreline and 30,000 surface acres. It is California's largest lake and one of America's most diversified outdoor sport areas. Shasta Lake offers eight marinas where you are bound to find your perfect houseboat match.
Trinity Lake is the third largest lake in California nestled in the Trinity Alps and has 147 miles of shoreline. If you're looking to get away from the crowded summer peak months, this is the place to be.
