Shasta Lake marinas are scattered around the lake to support your needs.  Sugarloaf Marina is walking distance right next door.  Length of walk depends 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 open during the warmer months.  Usually Memorial Day Weekend to Labor Day weekend.  Sometimes more or less.

UPDATE:  Sugarloaf marina is closed until Memorial Day Weekend.


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 will not be renting slips, please go to the marina above.


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), 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.  (800) 238-3924

Jan 15, 2022 UPDATE:   Antlers is open but is located temporarily at a different part of the lake.  Although the water level is now high enough to bring back to Sugarloaf, they have not done so as of today.  Contact them for the latest.  Please note they are motivated to move it back as they have camping sites and small cabin guests in our area and they don’t like going to the other side of the lake.  I would expect them to move it back in the Spring if not sooner but have not confirmed this.

NOTE:  Please see the “Lake Level” section of web site for the latest information.  There is a button below.

Lake Level


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.


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.  They offer a wide selection of rental boats and personal water craft.  See the map below for other marinas.
