Water Sports at Shasta Lake. When you stay at Shasta Lakeshore Retreat, you’re embarking on an aquatic adventure like no other. Shasta Lake offers an unparalleled water sports playground, and our pristine lakefront and lakeview locations makes it the perfect destination for enthusiasts of all skill levels. Shasta Lake is renowned for its consistent, flat water, which means you can wakeboard, wakesurf, and water ski all day long without interruption. The water temperature in the summer is a delightful 80-90 degrees, making every dip refreshing and inviting. It’s clear, clean, and incredibly inviting, offering an idyllic environment for swimmers and water sports enthusiasts.

What sets Shasta Lake apart is the tranquility it provides. With a vast expanse of water that spans 365 miles of shoreline and numerous private fingers and coves, you’ll feel like you have the lake all to yourself.

At Shasta Lakeshore Retreat, we supply paddleboards and kayaks for even more water exploration. Whether you’re a seasoned pro or trying these sports for the first time, our lakefront oasis is the ideal place to dive into an exciting world of water sports.
