Abstract

The existing uses at Huntington Lake have evolved from development of the basin area for timber and hydroelectric generation. As a result of the resource attraction in the 1920's, roads were constructed, allowing an influx of recreation visitors. The scenic beauty of the lake made it a popular area which promoted the formation of resorts and Forest Service recreational facilities. Special use permits for recreation summer homes were later granted by the Forest Service to allow utilization of the lake when relatively few people could make the arduous drive up the narrow mountain road.
