Shasta Lake, California

Cradled by snow capped Mount Shasta, Shasta Lake sparkles like a gem in the sun and is one of the largest and grandest reservoirs on the west coast.

Began in 1939 by the United States Bureau of Reclamation to provide flood control, irrigation and power production for the upper Sacramento Valley, Shasta. Completed in 1944, the dam is 602 feet high with a spillway crest at 3,460 feet.

The combined flow of four great rivers: the Sacramento, the McCloud, the Pit, and Squaw Creek fill the impoundment that creates Shasta Lake. When full, the lake contains 365 miles of shoreline and 4,493,000 acre-feet of water.
