Visiting Whiskeytown National Recreation Area in the summer is a time-honored tradition for Shasta County locals. A trip to Whiskeytown Lake and its surrounding trails is the perfect way to beat the heat. Now, there’s a special way to visit beautiful recreation area without paying the entrance/parking fee.

The bus fare is being provided by the State of California via the Low Carbon Transportation Operations Program. This is the perfect way to limit vehicle traffic in Whiskeytown while accommodating potential visitors not wanting to pay the fee associated with the park.
