Low Lake Levels
Huntington Lake 6/2/15

Huntington Lake 6/2/15

Due to the ongoing California drought, Huntington Lake will once again be at a low level this summer. Southern California Edison, who maintains the lake level, is reporting that the lake will be at 30-40% of capacity, which is similar to last summer’s lake level. In March, we were given a much more optimistic prediction (80%), but Southern California Edison has recently revised their estimates.

Huntington Lake is a large lake. At full capacity, it is six miles long.  So, although the lake will be smaller than it is at full capacity, it is still a big lake (4.5-5 miles long) and large enough for our use. Because we have moveable docks and many other people on the lake do not, we had the lake mostly to ourselves last summer. We anticipate a similar situation this summer. We are planning to operate all of our normal water activities, with all the same fun campers are used to at GAC.

Because of the topography of the lakebed near the camp, our cove will be mostly empty.  Our docks will be in the same location as last summer, which is about a 10 minute walk from our historic dock location.

The water level at Shaver Lake, where we have our island outpost, is predicted to be the same as last year, so we do not anticipate having to make any changes or relocating our docks for that program.

Huntington Lake’s low water level is not something that will impact the fun, friendships, and growth of GAC 2015. We’re choosing to see our lake as “half full” and being grateful that we can do all of our water sports in such a spectacular location.
