History of the lake: Boise Cascade Corporation acquired the land and projected the layout of Spring Valley Lake, and in March 1969 the company broke ground. The Spring Valley Lake project was built upon Kalin Ranch, a former cattle ranch that was being utilized for alfalfa farming and lay serene and quiet on both sides of the Mojave River. The whole area was at one time called Rancho Verde Co., which was purchased in 1877. Lake construction began in June 1969, and was officially filled and completed in February 1970. The lake is one mile long and reaches a depth of 22 feet.
The lake is surrounded by a community filled with modern and vintage architecture homes. There are plenty of houses that I would love to call mine one day, especially those right on the lake.
