Perfect Base for a Fantastic Vacation

Located just 70 miles North East of Fresno in the Sierra National Forest at Huntington Lake, we are just 20 miles in each direction from three major Central Sierra Lakes: Shaver, Edison and Florence. Lakeshore Resort is the place to be for all the mountains have to offer. Escape to the wondrous High Sierra at any time of year and experience all the beauty of a truly spectacular area.

Lakeshore Resort was established in 1922 and sits on 32 acres of forest, nestled on the main road. Read More about Lakeshore Resort History. We are surrounded by three wildernesses: Kaiser, Ansel Adams and John Muir. Known as the "best kept secret in the Sierras", Huntington Lake is at 7,000 feet and is a crisp and clear alpine lake. Read More about history of Huntington Lake. This area is undeveloped and surrounded by forests, lakes, streams, waterfalls, granite rock formations and views to take your breath away. Short day trips to the high country offer visitors variety in fishing and hiking trips or just taking in the beauty. There is always something to do in the Sierra or just do nothing, whichever you decide, we are here to help you have a relaxing and enjoyable time away.

Stay in one of Lakeshore Resort’s rustic cabins.

The historic Lakeshore Resort has been at Huntington Lake since the 1920s. The cabins are unique to an earlier era.

Bring you family, friends, fishing or skiing buddies, or that someone special up to Huntington Lake and spend a weekend or longer with us. Lakeshore Resort's cabins were built in the 1920's - 1940's. Clean, cozy and quaint, our cabins offer visitors the experience of nature without having to give up a hot shower or warm bed.

They are rustic mainly because there are no TV's or Telephones in our cabins.

We have been planning weddings and receptions for almost 30 years.

Our team of professionals will help you execute your dreams in a beautiful setting for much less than you may expect.

Imagine a lakeside wedding in the summer with a warm breeze on the rocky point. Or perhaps a wooded area in the fall by pines. Even a winter wedding in the snow, outside in the meadow or in the Lodge Hall.

We cater all weddings to each guest’s individual needs.

Central California’s best-known lake regatta is just outside our front doors.

You can expect up to 150 boats racing each weekend during late June and early July .

Huntington Lake is great for spectators viewing the racing from the shoreline. The Start/Finish line is just West of the launch ramp, about 50 feet off shore. Mark 1, the downwind jibe mark is about the same distance from the shore at the point which is about a 100 feet walk northwest of the Start/Finish line.

The event attracts Olympic gold medalists and national champions. The consistent winds and beautiful scenery attract sailors from all over the country.

Searching for something new and fun to do this winter?

Explore over 150 miles of groomed trails in the beautiful Sierra National Forest.

Cruising through the snow behind a one horse sleigh is good, but roaring through the forest on a snowmobile is fantastic. Take advantage of the Lakeshore Resort Snowmobile Rental program for a thrill of a lifetime. Dress warm, keep hydrated, carry snacks and always go snowmobiling with companions.

After an exciting day on the abundant snow trails around Huntington Lake, come have your favorite libation at the Lakeshore Resort Saloon.

Lakeshore Resort at Huntington Lake was built in 1922.

It features one of the few remaining wooden structures of its kind in a National Forest and has been nominated for the National Registry of Historic Places.

In 1922, Harry Allen, a heavy equipment engineer who worked on the building of the dams, built the General Store / Hotel and some of the cabins. He was the person who took a Model T Ford over the mountains establishing the Kaiser Pass Road to the backcountry. Harry and his wife Merle provided housing and comfort for the men working on the Big Creek hydroelectric project during the early 20’s.
