The Lake Shasta Caverns are a network of caves located near the McCloud arm of Shasta Lake in California. It was formerly named Chalk Cave and Baird Cave, named after Spencer Fullerton Baird.
The caves themselves are lovely, BUT after paying $28 per person, be aware that you will be rushed, rushed, rushed. Other than climbing stairs, our group was allowed less than five minutes in each of the “rooms”, because there was another group on our heels.
Some of our group who are older and a bit slower on the hundreds of stairs involved missed most of the guide’s spiel, because she did not wait for them. By the time they arrived, the guide was over half way through the information at that stop. She was very informative and knew the history well, but needed to be louder. I could hear the guide in the group behind us better than ours. Also, she was so comfortable with the script that she spoke too fast. Several of us couldn’t understand her well with the combination of low volume and speed.
Over all, what we got for our group’s 200+ dollars left us unsatisfied, annoyed and feeling totally ripped off. There are better caves that are far less expensive and far better presented!
This place is fun/interesting to see. Get lots of pictures!!
