Elizabeth LakeLa Laguna Del Diablo, as it was known to the Spanish, was created by seismic activity. Without the intervention of man, the lake would ultimately become a grassy meadow, then fill-in with trees. A portion of the lake is owned by the U.S. Forest Service with the remainder being privately owned. A cave near the Rancho once encompassing the lake, was one of several hideouts used by bandito Tiburcio Vasquez.
