Hop on a Kayak
After you've had your fun on the beach, hop on a kayak and explore the lake itself! Both Brandy Creek and Oak Bottom offer kayak rentals, and during the summer the park offers free ranger-led kayaking tours.
Go Chasing Waterfalls
If you can bring yourself to leave the lake (we've been there!) head to shore and go on a hike to one of Whiskeytown's four waterfalls: Crystal Creek Falls, Brandy Creek Falls, Boulder Creek Falls, or Whiskeytown Falls. Between the four, there's a hike for every skill level, and the view of the falls is sure to please!
Note: Brandy Creek Falls and Boulder Creek Falls trails are temporarily closed for reconstruction following the Carr Fire.
See the Stars
Just because the sun's gone down, doesn't mean your day's over yet! Because of its unique position nestled within mountain ranges and miles from urban light pollution, Whiskeytown is a great place to explore the heavens. Lay on the beach and stargaze, or if you're there during the summer, join the park rangers for a Star Party or a moonlight kayak tour.
