Trinity Lake is one of Northern California's pristine boating destinations located within the Shasta-Trinity National Forest.

Trinity is known as one of Northern California’s favorite houseboating playgrounds! Trinity Lake is encompassed by miles of tree-lined shores to explore and countless secluded coves, perfect for claiming as your own houseboat base camp.

You can also find some of the best water sport opportunities within the region, as well as world class trout and bass fishing along the 147 miles of shoreline.

The Trinity Lake area also boasts excellent hiking opportunities with a wide variety of wildlife and geography throughout the region. Horseback riding and river rafting are also popular activities with visitors to the Shasta Trinity National Forest.

Dog-friendly policies:

  • Cost per dog: $100 non-refundable houseboat fee, per dog

Bringing the gang to Redding? Bunk down at a pet-friendly hotel like the Sheraton Redding Hotel at Sundial Bridge. It is on the Sacramento River, adjacent to trails and attractions and makes a great base camp for a family getaway (see other dog-friendly lodging options here). more »

Redding isn’t just California’s Trail Capital; nearby Shasta Lake is the state’s Houseboating Capital, as well. In the wake of a wet winter, Shasta will be filled to capacity this summer and houseboating business will be brisk, so if you’ve ever considered a houseboat vacation that includes your dog, now’s the time to make reservations. Several Shasta Lake marinas rent houseboats ranging in size and style from stripped-down models popular with fishermen to ginormous floating palaces like the 65-foot, triple-decker Titan, which features satellite-tracking TV, eight flat-screen monitors, a jetted tube slide and a hot tub big enough for a dozen (no one will tell if your dog hops in, too). Shasta’s 360 miles of jagged shoreline are indented with cover after cove where houseboaters can anchor out in solitude or bob in the company of others. more »

Water, sun, stars, memories. A houseboating vacation provides them all, plus a lot of novelty for first-timers.

While Shasta Lake is justly known as the house-boating capital of California, it’s not the only body of water where you can herd your friends and family (including your pup, of course) aboard and say “anchors aweigh” on a slow-moving, waterborne vacation. more »
