Get in
 By motor vehicle
Lakehead is located at the northern most part of Shasta Lake and is the only town that is actually on Shasta Lake. If you are coming up from the south you will enjoy the drive through Shasta Trinity National Forest which starts at the southern end of Shasta Lake, if you are coming from the north you will pass by Mt. Shasta and Castle Crags, both of which are spectacular sights.
 By houseboat
If you're going to Lakehead by houseboat you will be traveling up the Sacramento river arm of the lake. The Sacramento river arm of the lake is a meca for water sports. There are two marinas in Lakehead proper, Antlers and Sugarloaf.
 Get around
If you go here, go by car or RV. Much of Lakehead is on the mainland (not on the shore).

 Shasta Caverns
There are really three parts to touring Shasta Caverns: the trip by boat, by bus, and by foot (the latter being in the Caverns themselves).
 By boat
You start out in a 65-ft. catamaran across Shasta Lake. This is your time to ignore the annoying tour guide and take in the scenery outdoors when you can. If you're interested in geography, then you probably actually should pay a little attention to the guide.
 By bus
If you're an animal lover, you'll enjoy this. There are bald eagles, ospreys, falcons, mountain lions, bobcats, black bears, and black-tailed deer here.
 In the Caverns
Inside, there are some nice formations. The path winds along a normally dark path, but it is lighted.
