Released On: August 02, 2012
The removal of the resort has been reviewed over the past year by Reclamation and it was determined that its removal will result in a cost savings to taxpayers by eliminating administrative and oversight costs, resolve federal trespass issues, and will not have a negative impact on recreation since similar recreation facilities are available nearby.
The former concession area encompassed about 3 acres of Reclamation land which will remain open for day use activities such as parking, snowmobiling and shoreline fishing. People will also have access to three nearby boat ramps operated by Bureau of Land Management.
The lake is impounded by Hyatt Dam which was constructed in 1923 by the Talent Irrigation District for water storage.
