The communities of Elizabeth Lake and Lake Hughes are located in the southwestern portion of the Antelope Valley, northwest of Leona Valley, and are partially within the National Forest.  Some portions of the community are developed or partially developed with single-family homes, light agricultural uses, and a limited amount of commercial and industrial uses.  Other portions are largely undeveloped, are generally not served by existing infrastructure, contain environmental resources, such as Significant Ecological Areas and Hillside Management Areas, and are subject to safety constraints, such as the San Andreas Fault and Very High Fire Hazard Severity Zones.

For a more detailed description of the Elizabeth Lake and Lake Hughes communities can be found in the Community-Specific Land Use Concepts chapter of the Antelope Valley Area Plan.
