There are quite a few incredible lakes in the Redding area but Whiskeytown might just be our favorite. Over 35 miles of shoreline surround the lake which offers you the opportunity to go boating, waterskiing, kayaking, sailing, canoeing, swimming and more (personal watercraft like jet skies are prohibited).
This 39,000-acre park is home to a wide variety of land activities as well. There are over 70 miles of trails, some leading to the four waterfalls you can find within the park, a marina, an ampitheatre, plenty of picnic & barbeque areas, nice beaches and much more.
