Canoeing at Hagg Lake


Canoeing at Hagg Lake


Black and white image of two canoeists on Hagg Lake. In the center of the image two denuded trees rise out of the water, a reminder that the damming of Scoggins Creek inundated thousands of acres of local farmland and wildlife habitat. Most of the buildings were removed prior to the reservoir's filling. Hagg Lake Park was the first county park in Washington County, created when the Bureau of Reclamation built the Scoggins Dam and Hagg Lake was formed in the mid-1970s. Henry Hagg was a long time resident of the Scoggins Valley and had been one of the original initiators of the Scoggins Dam project in 1934.
