Huntington Lake Merchants: There's More To Do Than Just Sail at 7,000 Feet

Posted: Updated:
Huntington Lake -

Farmers are hurting for water on the Valley floor and due to the drought the water level at Huntington Lake hasn't been lower in decades.  Right now it is at one-third capacity. 

Roy Omachi who runs Huntington Lake Resort says there's still plenty of things to do in paradise. "You can still come to the campgrounds and the weather is beautiful up here.  You can go swimming now.  More people are on the beaches, sunning, canoeing and kayaking because of the situation you can't get the larger boats in the water."

Huntington is known for sailboats and summer regattas.  That's because the wind blows every day all day long. But the big events have been canceled this year.  Omachi admits he and his business neighbors are struggling.  "We're just doing the best with the people that are coming."

Songill Schnellinger is from San Diego.  She and her family discovered Huntington Lake a year ago.  "I just love the water.  It's crystal clear and the trees are beautiful."

Mary Ann Hendrickson has been coming to the family cabin at Huntington Lake since she was five years old.  Hendrickson says she never runs out of things to do all summer.  "The lake is always gorgeous, hiking, just the serenity, the weather.  There's nothing negative I can say about Huntington Lake."

Business owners say this year Huntington Lake is more like Huntington Beach because the water is so low.
