It is held back by the ninth tallest dam in the United States and is part of the Whiskeytown-Shasta-Trinity National Recreation Area and Shasta-Trinity National Forest. Shasta Dam was constructed in 1945 to provide irrigation water, electric power, and flood control for the farmers and residents of the Sacramento Valley. Shasta Lake is conveniently located just ten miles north of the city of Redding, California just off Interstate 5.
