Lake Arrowhead is a small, scenic community, surrounded by the neighboring small towns of Blue Jay, Agua Fria, Crest Park, and Skyforest.
All unincorporated, these communities are still not without amenities, shops, and other businesses the likes of which you can find in any other town.
Unlike other towns though, Lake Arrowhead is home one of the most beautiful lakes in the world, right under Arrowhead Mountain, in the middle of the San Bernardino Forest.
