Is next door to our homes.  We are pleased to announce, according to them, that you can obtain a boat slip on a daily or weekly basis by contacting Sugarloaf Marina for Summer 2021.  Their rates were ~$40/night last we heard.  As some of you are aware, they did not offer the slips the past two years (until late 2020) so we secured a couple season passes and made them available for some of our guests.  Starting in 2021, according to Ryan at Sugarloaf Marina (530) 238-8200 they will go back to offering a limited number of slips so we don’t have to.  They will no longer allow us to share our slips.  They tend to open Memorial Day Weekend and close either labor day weekend of the end of September.  They said as of now they will start to take reservations on March 1, 2021.
    Is a larger marina that stay open a greater part of the year.  They are about 3 miles up the lake from us when water levels are high.  When water levels drop below about 80′ from the top they move the marina down next to Sugarloaf Marina.   800-238-3924

Please understand we are just passing the information as we are not associated in anyway with Sugarloaf or Antlers.


Some of our guests like to anchor their boats below our homes in the cove.  Since the marina is next door, this cove tends to be pretty well protected by wakes.  We have a good trail down (although not good for the disabled or elderly) to the water level.  Parking your boat offshore of our homes is legal and there is no charge.  It is especially good for Jet Ski’s and Waverunners as you can just swim out and take off.   If you have a regular boat you might want to anchor using a bungee anchor line  on the back and a regular role on the front.  The front rope you can tie to your stake in the ground.  Then when you arrive you can pull the boat to you and board.   Then everyone can board or you can have someone drive it over to the marina where they can load more easily at the dock at the store.  Please note that Shasta is a reservoir so the lake level is the highest in late Spring (like Memorial Day) and then usually starts to drop through the Summer and the fall.  The water level at the end of October has been anywhere from 40′ to 120′ below the top level.  This makes the distance from our three homes longer as the water drops.


Other guests prefer to launch and bring back their boat each day to the house.  The boat ramp is next door at the marina from a full lake to 60′ down then the Sugarloaf county boat ramp opens.  The charge for a launch is ~$15 per day and can be paid at the Marina Store.

We do have room at all three homes to park at least one truck with boat in select areas.  Additional boat/trailer parking can be done at the marina for a fee.

Call if you would like to discuss.
