Horsethief Basin Resort began as a park facility of the City of Phoenix, built in 1936−1937 with assistance from the Public Works Administration (PWA) and Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). In 1966 the city sold its interest in the resort buildings to private owners, and the area reverted to administration by the U.S. Forest Service as part of the Prescott National Forest.
The reservoir's dam is open to pedestrians and anglers. Boating is allowed on the lake.
