Whiskeytown Lake

In the mid to late 1800's you would have traveled here by horseback, mule train, stagecoach, or on foot. The rough road that would have led you here continued into the valley, now filled with Whiskeytown Lake. It passed near mining camps along Clear Creek and through the small towns of Whiskeytown, Oak Bottom, and Grizzly Gulch. You might have stayed at Mix's Hotel, Oak Bottom House, or Brown's House. There you were certain to find a hearty meal, a strong drink, and a livery stable.

The towns here prospered from gold miners and travelers. But gold gave out and the railroad shifted traffic to nearby Redding. Still, some stayed on, right up to the building of the Whiskeytown Dam and Reservoir from 1959 - 1963.
