Houseboat Options at Bridge Bay Marina 

Welcome to Bridge Bay Marina at Shasta Lake in Redding, California. If you haven’t heard about us or Shasta Lake yet, you are in luck! We are proud to be called home for short- and long-term vacations alike. At Shasta Lake, fun is endless between the opportunities to stargaze, hike, fish, boat, picnic, explore, and more. We also pride ourselves on being a great destination for all group sizes: come solo, stake out a romantic rendezvous, bring the family, take that long-discussed friend trip, or ditch them and just bring your furry friends. We are known for our unique houseboat and lodging options, so if you’re ready to explore your vacation choices and plan your trip, let’s go!  

We’re best known for our houseboats, which are a special vacationing method. If you’re looking for a camping experience right on the water, houseboats are the best choice for you and your group. At Bridge Bay Marina, we have multiple houseboat options for you to choose from.
