11 RAMPS ON SHASTA

There are about 7 public boat ramps plus another 4 private ramps.  Guests have access to the private ramps as they are owned by Marinas like Sugarloaf and Bridge Bay.  We will first cover the 5 ramps in the Sugarloaf & Lakehead area.  This area is highly desired by vacationers as it has a number of cottages, resorts and the nicest vacation rentals available on the lake.

OPEN LOWER WATER RAMPS

Although they will not be needed in 2024, if all the local ramps close, the following boat ramps stay open to about 200 to 220′ down.  As far as we know they have never closed unless they did in 1977 when the lake was at it lowest point in history.  2021 was the 2nd lowest level and they did not close.
1. Bay Bridge 1.800.752.9669
2. Centimudi

Bridge bay is the closet of these three to our homes.  It is about a 15-18 min drive.
