Shasta Lake has excellent eight marinas spread around the large lake. Many have gas, a store on the water and rental boats. We will first provide information on Antlers and Sugarloaf Marina which are both located in popular Sugarloaf & Lakehead area of the lake. This is home of multiple resorts, cottages and the finest Vacation Rentals on the lake.
8 MARINAS ON SHASTA
Boat Slips Available Now in Sugarloaf
Antlers is a large marina and is normally only about 3 miles north from our homes most of the time. When the lake drops below 80′ from the top (like Summer 2021 and currently in 2022), they move it close to us in the Sugarloaf area. They tend to have rental boats and more slips as well as stay open longer if not for entire year conditional on lake level. Phone (530) 238-2553
MAY 30, 2022 UPDATE:
Antler’s Marina currently has boat slips available for rent at $30 a night or $300 per month in the Sugarloaf area close to our homes. This is a short drive or longer walk. Make sure you call them or email them as soon as possible to reserve a slip. They will run out as demand is high.
Call: (530) 238-2553
They will only have the slips this year. Their rental boats, houseboats, fuel dock and store is located still at another part of the lake.
Based on current lake level and expected outflow from the lake, we estimate that these slips will be available at least for May, June and July. Although only a guess on our part, we think the will remove them sometime in August or September. Unclear if early or late.
NOTE: Please see the “Lake Level” section of our web site for the latest information. There is a button below.
Closed for 2022. Use Antlers Above.
Shasta Lake marinas are scattered around the lake to support your needs. Normally Sugarloaf Marina is walking distance right next door but is seasonal and depends on lake level. Length of walk depends also on lake level.
We encourage our guests to fuel up and get snacks on the lake at the store. Unfortunately, unlike the larger Shasta Lake Marinas, Sugarloaf is only normally open during the warmer months. Usually Memorial Day Weekend to Labor Day weekend. Sometimes more or less. If the lake drops to a very low level, they move this marina to the deeper water and will not be available. We do not expect this marina will return for 2022. See Shasta Lake Level section on this web site for the latest information. We try to update that every 2-3 weeks.
Please understand we have no association or influence on the decisions of this marina or any other.

Gas is available at the Sugarloaf Docks when they are open. Plan ahead as they tend to close around 5:30pm and the next closest gas on the lake is 3 miles north at Antlers or 10 miles south at Bridge Bay. Octane is usually 87 at Sugarloaf. Gas on the lake is usually about $1.00 to $1.50 more than at a regular gas station. There is a Shell (formerly Texaco) and Chevron gas station by car/trailer that is back by the exit off hwy 5 as you come to our home. This is about 2.5 miles from our two homes. They offer multiple grades of fuel. Based on information from the two marinas, we do not believe fuel will be available on the lake for 2022 in the Sugarloaf area. You will need to fuel up in town (3 miles away) or at one of the other marinas.
MAY 2022 UPDATE:
Fuel is available currently and expected through the Summer in Lakehead at the two Gas Stations (2+ miles from our house) but there is no fuel on the lake this year close to the homes or Antlers Slips. The closest fuel will be at Packers Bay or Bridge Bay. Since most of your boating will be in the large Sacramento Channel, these are not very far from you.
There are about 7 other Shasta Lake Marinas. Most of these are larger and are open all or most of the year. Antlers is the closest which is about 3 miles north on the lake (if lake is less than 80′ down). They offer a wide selection of rental boats and personal water craft. See the map below for other marinas.
