Hike-in camping and RV parks are sprinkled around the shores of the lake and houseboats are a wildly popular option. Most houseboats require a two-night minimum stay. Make reservations as far in advance as possible, especially in the summer months. Houseboats usually sleep 10 to 16 adults and cost around $1600 to $8400 per week. The RV parks are often crowded and lack shade, but they have on-site restaurants. If you want to explore the area on a day trip, stay in Redding.
