California lakes are some of the most sought-after vacation destinations. There are a number of recreational activities one can do on these lakes, but houseboating is one of the most popular. Shasta Lake in northern California has been called the houseboat capital of the world and has turned up on several top-ten lists. Shasta Marina at Packers Bay is situated on this notable lake, offering houseboat rentals to vacationers wanting to get away from it all.
Why Shasta Lake
There are reasons why Shasta Lake, of all the California lakes, has earned the title of houseboat capital of the world. Shasta Lake is fed by four rivers—the Sacramento River, the McCloud River, the Pit River, and Squaw Creek—and surrounded by a treasure trove of natural beauty. The 365-mile shoreline, which is larger than the entire San Francisco Bay, is lined with rugged mountains, including Mount Shasta, the second highest peak in the Cascades. This scenic wonderland includes waterfalls and hiking trails and the renowned Shasta Dam and Shasta Caverns. Shasta Lake is home to a wide variety and abundance of fish, making it a fishing paradise.
