History of Unity Lake State Recreation Site
Thirty acres of the Unity Lake State Park are managed under a 1959 lease agreement with the U. S. Bureau of Reclamation. The additional nine acres were purchased from a private owner. Unity Lake was formed after the damming of Burnt River by the Bureau of Reclamation to provide agricultural irrigation water. The park was created to provide public access to the lake.
