If you're planning an upcoming vacation in beautiful, sunny California
, treat yourself to some time in one of our Shaver vacation rentals for an abundance of fun activities any outdoor enthusiast will love. You're sure to create lasting memories!
Where is Shaver Lake?
Just inside the western border of the Sierra National Forest, 50 miles northeast of Fresno and 186 miles due east of California's sunny central coast
, you'll find the cool waters of Shaver Lake. There is a town that shares the same name nestled in the southwest corner of the lake.
Things to Do at Shaver Lake
The water is a focal point at Shaver Lake, so join in and launch your watercraft from Shaver Lake Marina or Sierra Marina. Float around to your heart's content and find a quiet cove to drop your anchor for a refreshing dip.
Cast your line off the side of your boat or simply fish from the shore. Either way, Shaver Lake is well stocked, virtually ensuring your catch of the day. Or schedule a trip with Dick's Fishing Charters and receive not only all the tackle you need but a free lunch, too!
If you want a break from the water, hit the wilderness trails for mountain biking at China Peak Mountain Bike Park, take a scenic lift ride, or play some disc golf. The Shaver Lake Car Show, Fireworks and Boat Parade, concerts, and guided horseback rides with Shaver Lake Stables are other fun ways to spend your time.
When hunger pangs hit, Shaver Coffee & Deli offer fresh java and their famous chunky bread while the Trading Post has delicious meals for lunch and dinner, along with wine and cold beer to wash it down.
If you're staying in one of our oceanfront rentals in the charming seaside town of Aptos
, take a day trip to Shaver Lake for an invigorating change of pace. Better yet, reserve a stay in one of our Shaver Lake vacation rentals so you won't have to leave. Time spent at this beautiful destination is sure to leave you with cherished memories that will last a lifetime!
