Just a stone’s throw below the pristine Castle Lake, lies the primitive and quaint Castle Lake Campground. If you haven’t been to Castle Lake, simply put, you should come. It is a glacial cirque lake with granite cliffs, clear water, and ample trails to other secret lakes that lie above. Up this high them’ views of Mt. Shasta are a treat, and your wine is guaranteed to taste pretty darn sweet!
