Pyramid Lake is located in the Angeles and Los Padres National Forests in California. It is a reservoir formed by Pyramid Dam on Piru Creek, a tributary of the Santa Clara River. The lake was created in 1972 and is a key source of water for Southern California. The region receives most of its water from snowpack and surface flow from the Sierra Nevada Mountains. The lake also serves as a hub for agricultural irrigation and recreational activities such as boating and fishing. The lake's recreational areas are popular for camping, picnicking, and hiking. Pyramid Lake has been a significant cultural site for Native American tribes for thousands of years and is considered a sacred site. Today, the lake remains an important resource for the people and wildlife of California.
