Lake of the Pines is a census-designated place (CDP) and a gated residential community in Nevada County, California, United States. The population was 3,917 at the 2010 census, down from 3,956 at the 2000 census.

Geography[edit]

Lake of the Pines is located in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountain range in California, at 39°02′19″N 121°03′41″W / 39.038571°N 121.061354°W / 39.038571; -121.061354.[2]

According to the United States Census Bureau, the CDP has a total area of 1.8 square miles (4.7 km2), of which, 1.5 square miles (3.9 km2) of it is land and 0.4 square miles (1.0 km2) of it (19.00%) is water.

Lake of the Pines is commonly associated with a gated residential community which surrounds a reservoir, also named Lake of the Pines. The reservoir was created by damming Magnolia Creek, in the Bear River watershed, and it has a maximum elevation of 459 m (1507 ft).[3] The gated community contains a golf course looping around the reservoir. The community is normally accessed only through the main entrance from Magnolia Road, just northeast of Combie Road.[4]

The boundaries of the census-designated place differ slightly from the boundaries of the gated community. As the CDP boundaries tend to follow streets, the CDP excludes many parcels in the periphery of the gated community and includes a shopping center in Combie Road.[5] In postal addresses, the area is considered a part of Auburn, though the city of Auburn is in Placer County.[6]
