Located about 20 miles north of Redding, Shasta Lake, the jewel of Northern California, is the ?Houseboat Mecca of the World?. The lake offers 10 commercial marinas who collectively offer more than 400 rental houseboats, creating the largest fleet on any lake in the U.S. The Houseboats range from a basic camper on pontoons, to the equivalent of a luxury condominium that floats. Shasta Lake is 370 miles of shoreline. Besides houseboating, there is a wide range of other boating opportunities with marinas offering for rent personal watercraft, patio boats, canoes, paddle boats, kayaks and fishing boats. Majestic mountains and towering evergreens are the backdrop for Lake Shasta.
