Spring Valley Lake construction began in June 1969. The excavation of the lake basin was one of the largest earth moving projects in the history of the Victor Valley at that time. On January 1, 1970, pumps began to fill the lake with 1,080,000,000 gallons of water. It took slightly over one month for the mile-long lake basin to be filled. The lake consists of 200-surface acres and almost seven miles of shoreline. The shoreline at its maximum length is 6,000 feet long. The depth ranges from 9 feet to 22 feet.
The golf course and country club construction began shortly after the lake was finished in early 1970. The Spring Valley Lake golf course is situated on 164 acres and was designed by the world famous golf architect, Robert Trent Jones. The Equestrian Estates is located east of Spring Valley Lake and across the Mojave River. All of the lots are one-half acre and were designed as ranch or country estates where horses could be kept.
Spring Valley Lake has many amenities which include a beach/swimming area, picnic facilities and a full range of boating activities such as water skiing, windsurfing, wakeboarding and jet skiing. There are also 14 fishing areas on the shore and the Association has a marina with 105 boat slips available to rent to Association members. Other amenities include the 10-acre Meadowlark Park, which has playgrounds and playing fields and on which a 9,400 square foot, multi-purpose community building is located.
Long Acres Park, Playfair Park, a 25-stall equestrian center with a show ring and several miles of bridle trails are located in the Equestrian Estates. All are a part of SVLA's amenities.
