This is a big question if you are thinking of owning property around the Lake Arrowhead area. Lake Arrowhead is a private lake in the San Bernardino Mountains. I am often asked what does lake rights mean? What “Lake Rights” mean is that anyone who owns property within the “Arrowhead Woods” boundaries have the right to use Lake Arrowhead.

There are two type of ownership’s in Lake Arrowhead, either an improved property or an unimproved property. If you have an improved property (Home) you have the right to use the lake and buy a dock. An unimproved property has limited lake rights, but still would allow you to use the lake and rent a dock or use the lake on a daily launch basis. Both allow you to belong to the beach clubs here in Lake Arrowhead. If you live outside of the boundaries of lake rights you cannot use Lake Arrowhead.
A nice thing about being a private lake is that the integrity, care, health of the lake are of great concern. Lake Arrowhead’s “Small Town Charm” applies on the lake too. You know the people who you are boating around.
The Arrowhead Lake Association is the governing board that runs the lake and it is made up with home owners who represent different districts of the lake.
