When most people think of Shasta Lake, they imagine themselves on a houseboat enjoying California's largest manmade reservoir. With 365 miles of shoreline it is a boaters paradise. What most people don't think about is the massive structure that is responsible for holding back the water that creates Shasta Lake. We're talking about 3,460 feet long and 602 feet high Shasta Dam which, is a perfect example of "California's Gold." Construction of the dam started in 1938 and ended in 1945. The spillway is the largest manmade waterfall in the world - three times the height of Niagara Falls.
