Lake Arrowhead itself is a manmade reservoir with a surface area of approximately 782 acres and a capacity of 48,000 acre-feet. The lake was originally intended to serve as part of a major waterworks project to provide irrigation water to the San Bernardino Valley and construction of the Lake Arrowhead Dam began towards that end in 1904. The original project was halted due to litigation over water supplies to land owners on the desert side of the mountains. Construction of the dam was completed in 1922 by the Arrowhead Lake Company, a Los Angeles syndicate, as part of a plan to develop the area into a resort. Lake Arrowhead is a private lake governed by the Arrowhead Lake Association and is for restricted use by Lake Arrowhead property owners – those that live within the Arrowhead Woods boundaries.
