Scenic Trinity Lake

Trinity Lake...
Northern California's Picture Perfect Paradise!

Can you picture it? The pristine waters of an azure lake sparkling like a field of diamonds in the summer sunlight... The breathtaking beauty of the snow-capped Trinity Alps serving as a backdrop to the stunning lake... Miles and miles of primitive shoreline to discover and explore!

That is what you will find at Trinity Lake, set among the pine trees of the largest National Forest in California, the 2.2 million acre Shasta-Trinity National Forest. Trinity Lake may be the third largest water body in the state, but it's second to none in the beauty of its surroundings. Trinity boasts 16,000 surface acres with 145 miles of shoreline and a backdrop of snow-capped alpine mountains almost year round. It's these scenic vistas that draw visitors from around the world to boat, fish, photograph, and enjoy nature in its purest form.

Sailing on Trinity Lake

Considered one of the Prettiest Lake Settings in California... Trinity Lake is Easily one of the Most Fun as well!

Beautiful Trinity Lake consists of numerous small arms, calm inlets, and a glass-like surface that makes it perfect for house-boating, water-skiing and other water sports and recreation.

If your pastime is fishing then be prepared for trout, salmon, bass and catfish. The best place for first timers to catch their limit is found at the backs of coves, long points, rocky outcroppings, stump beds and the ever popular dredging piles at the north end of the lake. All of these spots are excellent places to begin your search for your trophy fish. You are also very close to some good fly fishing spots further down the Trinity River. In addition to fishing you can enjoy swimming, speed boating, water-skiing and so much more. Reserve a houseboat for the week and get the full Trinity Lake experience! Surrounding the lake, visitors can hike the unspoiled wilderness of the Trinity Alps and the Shasta-Trinity National Forest.
