Shasta Dam and Powerplant Tour with a Tour Guide   
Starting June 3, 2024, Reclamation Guides will be offering tours of Shasta Dam at 9 a.m., 11 a.m., 1 p.m., and 2 p.m. (schedule subject to change without notice). The free tour will include a walk across the top of the dam, an elevator ride down 400 feet, and a short walk through the dam to a stunning view of the spillway. A tour of the Shasta Powerplant is included. Reclamation guides share the rich history of Shasta Dam, how it was built, and the important role it plays in the Central Valley Project. The tours will be offered on a first come, first service basis and tickets are handed out one hour in advance. They are also limited to 20 people per tour.

The Northern California Area Office is headquartered at Shasta Dam, about 9 miles northwest of Redding, California, on the Sacramento River; resource offices are also located at Willows, Trinity, Lewiston and Spring Creek Debris, Whiskeytown and Buckhorn dams. The Area Office supports Stony Gorge Dam operation and the Coleman, Livingston Stone and Lewiston National Fish hatcheries, administers water service contracts, and manages Reclamation lands within its geographical area.

As the headwaters to the Central Valley Project, the Shasta and Trinity River Divisions are key CVP facilities, providing flood control, power, water supply benefits, and recreational opportunities throughout the area.
