Huntington Lake

Huntington Lake is located about 60 miles east of Fresno, CA at an elevation of 7000 feet in the Sierra Nevada mountains. Temperatures in the summer usually range in the 70's in the daytime with cooler nights.

Created by the building of four dams on Big Creek at the beginning of the last century, Huntington Lake provides flood control and electric power in addition to wonderful recreation opportunities. For more information on Huntington Lake itself see the Wikipedia entry.
