After almost 40 years of waiting, California’s Lake Shasta Caverns has been designated a Natural National Landmark by the National Park Service.

First opened to the public in 1964, Lake Shasta Caverns are a network of caves located near the McCloud arm of California’s Shasta Lake that have been dated at about 250 million years old.

With the designation finally being granted – the original application submitted in 1974 – Lake Shasta Caverns has become the 36th Natural National Landmark in California.

Lake Shasta Caverns is open to the public year round, with daily cave tours. For more information on visiting call 1-800-795-CAVE (2283) or visit the Lake Shasta Caverns website.
