      From sizzling summers to a winter wonderland

      Surrounded by the tall pines of the Sierra National Forest, around 50 miles from Fresno, this beaut of a lake is the perfect spot for hiking, biking, and fishing among beautiful scenery. Whether you’re into watersports or winter sports, there are so many family-friendly activities on your doorstep here that you’ll be hard pushed to fit them all in. Book a centrally located Shaver Lake vacation rental and then get outside and make the most of that fresh mountain air, whatever the weather.

      Hook the big one at Shaver Lake

      There’s plenty of fun to be had on the water here, including swimming, waterskiing, canoeing, and kayaking. Shaver Lake is also open year-round for fishing, and is well stocked with the likes of rainbow trout, kokanee salmon and smallmouth bass. Back on dry land there are multiple hiking, biking, and horseback riding trails, and rock climbing and disc golf are also popular. In winter, the resort transforms into a winter playground, with cross-country skiing and family-friendly Sno-Parks available nearby, and one of California’s finest ski resorts, China Peak Mountain Resort, just 20 miles away.

      Have a high old time in Shaver Lake

      One of the best ways to see the lake and the surrounding forests is to take the scenic chair lift up to the China Peak Mountain Bike Park (open summertime only). Book a Shaver Lake vacation rental and explore neighboring lakes including Huntingdon Lake and Edison Lake, connected by picturesque creeks and rivers that all offer fantastic fishing and hiking opportunities. Learn more about the history of this logging town at the Central Sierra Historical Society’s open-air museum, or head further afield to Kings Canyon National Park or Mono Hot Springs.

      How to stay cool at Shaver Lake

      The temperature at Shaver Lake during the summer months can top 90 degrees, but its high elevation makes it cooler and less oppressive than the surrounding valleys. With its year-round mountain breezes, it’s the perfect spot for windsurfing and sailing, particularly in spring and summer. Although there’s always an abundance of snow on the mountains during winter, lakeside temperatures remain mild at around 50 degrees. Shaver Lake vacation rentals are in high demand during the summer and winter peaks, so make sure you book early.

      Discover the natural beauty of Shaver Lake

      With its lush surroundings, it’s hardly surprising that the residents of Shaver Lake share their home with a variety of flora and fauna. Book a centrally located Shaver Lake vacation rental and see nature at its best. As well as a lake full of fish, the forests and mountains are home to animals including deer, quail and bears. And at nearby McKinley Grove you’ll find Giant Sequoia trees, some at 250ft tall, while close to Huntington Lake is Rancheria Falls, a 150ft waterfall that cascades down the granite cliff face.
