Top Things To Do At Lake Shasta

One of three discovered caverns in the Lake Shasta area, Lake Shasta Caverns features dramatic stalactites and stalagmites extending from its ceiling and floor and carries a rich history of spelunking and discovery. The caverns are only accessible via guided tours (, which cost $24 for adults and $14 for children.
