Despite being an incredibly busy campground, we had quite a peaceful experience here. Our site had a good amount of space, and although there were a lot of campers around us, we didn't feel overly cramped and had a decent amount of space. Every inch of the campground is covered in pine trees and smells incredible. The campground is massive and has a lot to offer- there are hiking trails, a marina, general store, and a beach, to name a few. The beach is a decent walk from the campground, but worth every minute- the lake sits at the bottom of Mt. Shasta and has an inflatable waterpark, swimming area, and water recreation rentals (kayaks, paddle boards, paddle boats, etc.). The rentals are a little pricey, but definitely worth it. We rented kayaks and the lake was so serene; the perfect way to spend an afternoon. There are a lot of families at the campground, but it never felt too rowdy because it is so spread out. The bathrooms are a short walk away, but not very clean due to the remodeling they are doing to some of the bathrooms to become a year-round facility (though there are free showers). Though there can be a lot of walking to reach the activities available, there is so much to explore, and the scenery is so beautiful that you forget about everything else.
