Lake Whitney Water Levels

It seems like we fight a never ending battle with the media. Whether it's low water, high water, or just right water, the press always wants to use scare tactics to create a story. Here are the facts:

1. The lake levels are not in any way too low for boating on the lake. Current levels can be seen at http://www.swf-wc.usace.army.mil/whitney/ . Today we are 11.5 feet below normal, but there is still 90 feet of deep water on our end of the lake.

2. We see levels of 11-13 feet below normal almost every summer. Our guests have been launching boats and we have been renting our boats with no difficulty at all.

3. Keep in mind that Lake Whitney originally was built for a level much lower than the current normal. What that means is that in some places there are ramps that "reappear" as the level goes down.

4. Lower water gives a unique opportunity to explore the shore on foot. Hiking is now possible from our resort all the way to Lofer's Bend park more than a mile to the west and well into the Towash Creek area to the east.

It's Not All About the Lake


I've been thinking about what goes through people's minds when they think of visiting Lake Whitney. If you found this site because you were looking for a place to fish or ski then you obviously had a lake in mind from the start of your search. If however, you stumbled across Lake Whitney as simply a getaway then you may be feeling some nagging questions about why you should choose Lake Whitney as your destination if you don't even own a boat and wouldn't know one end of a fishing pole from another.

The answer is simple: it isn't all about the lake. It's about beautiful scenery, quiet mornings, and a sky full of stars that you can't see in the city. It's about peacocks, horses, and purple martins. It's about letting your kids feel the mud squish between their toes at the edge of the water or struggle to find the perfect stone to skip across the lake. It's about having a nice dinner without the traffic headaches of getting there. It's about romance. But most importantly, it's about connections. What you'll find here is a unique place to connect with those you love and with nature in a way that leaves only one nagging question unanswered. When can we come back?
