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.


Seasonal Boat Slips and Marina. Next to Retreat 1-5

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 (like in 2021), they move this marina to the deeper water and will not be available.  See Shasta Lake Level section on this web site for the latest information.  We try to update that every 2-3 weeks.  We expect the marina to return in the Spring.

Please understand we have no association or influence on the decisions of this marina or any other.


Sugarloaf Marina, right next to us have great boat slips behind a locked gate for $40 per night but a very limited number so call as soon as possible.  Contact information (depending on when you are calling):
During the Off Season (Oct-May):
Reservations Supervisor, 530-275-7950 (Jones Valley Marina owns them)

If during the season and they are open then call:
Contact Sugarloaf Marina at 520-238-8200.

Shasta Lakeshore Retreats does not have any slips to rent.  Please go to the marina above.  We have not influence over this marina or any of the other marinas decisions and policies.  Lake level can impact the operations of this marina.  Please see our “Shasta Lake Level” section of our web site for latest information on this topic.


Seasonal Boat Slips Available at Antlers

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 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

Spring/Summer 2023:
We expect Antlers and Sugarloaf will be open in the Spring.  Antler’s Marina normally has boat slips available for rent at $30 a night.    This is normally a short drive or longer walk.  Make sure you call them or email them as soon as possible to reserve a slip and confirm that they are still open.

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 homes.  They offer multiple grades of fuel.

Winter 2022/23:
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 close to the homes in the winter.   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.

Spring/Summer 2023:
We expect fuel to return to the marina in the Spring next to our homes.  We are unable to confirm but at current lake level, they have always in the past.


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.
