Lake Almanor West is a 615 acre community located on the west shore of scenic Lake Almanor, adjacent to California State Highway 89 a few miles southwest of the town of Chester. In addition to the approximately 700 residential lots, the development includes a 9 hole golf course, four tennis courts, a beach/recreation area and a boat ramp. The golf course is open to the public, but all of the other facilities are private and reserved for property owner usage. The development began in 1974 and continues
to grow as a quiet community with its own water and fire protection services.
The West Almanor Community Club (WACC) is the property owners' association of Lake Almanor West. As a Common Interest Development, all property owners automatically become members of WACC. The organization functions via a Board of Directors elected for a term of two years on a rotating basis, with elections held each year at the annual meeting scheduled during early July. Regular Board meetings are held monthly; notices are posted on community bulletin boards and at the WACC Office. Since every property owner has a stake in the mutually-owned ("common") facilities, members are encouraged to attend WACC meetings, participate in community matters and act as good stewards of the development's resources.
The development at Lake Almanor West includes both public and private facilities. The golf course and restaurant are open to the public and operate on a seasonal basis. The golf course opens after the snow melts and the grass has recovered (typically about mid April) and remains open until the first heavy frosts or snows of autumn (generally late October). The restaurant typically opens around the first of May and remains open through September. The remaining facilities are all private and are available for property owner use and enjoyment.
