Lake Shasta Caverns: Underground Explorations

Formed by flowing water over 200 million years ago, this incredible system of limestone caves is an underground wonderland of stalactites, stalagmites, soda straw features and flowstone. Only explored by spelunkers until 1964, the caverns in Shasta are in pristine condition. During your visit you can also cruise the crystal blue waters of Shasta Lake on a 65' catamaran, take a guided tour and try the climbing wall.
