Shasta and Trinity Lakes are two of the three Forest Service managed lakes in the Shasta-Trinity National Recreation Area, offering houseboating, water skiing, tubing and wakeboarding.

The Trinity River, between Junction City and Cedar Flat is the focal point for whitewater activities although the Sacramento River, above Shasta Lake is also quite popular.  Flatwater kayakers and canoeists find great water for their sports on Lewiston, Castle and Siskiyou Lakes.

McCloud Lake, located east of Mt. Shasta, is well known for it's fishing opportunities, as is Iron Canyon Reservoir which is located north east of Shasta Lake.
