Boating at Hagg Lake


Boating at Hagg Lake


Black and white image of cars and boat trailers parked along the access road to one of the Hagg Lake Boat ramps. Many sailboats can be seen on the lake in the background. Because there was no other place for motorized boating in the county, Hagg Lake allowed motor boats to operate on about half of its surface, with the upper half of the lake reserved as a no-wake zone for non-motorized craft. 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.
