    The Echo Lakes, two High Sierra alpine lakes, are located within the borders of the Eldorado National Forest which is administered by the Forest Service. The lakes are utilized by day users and cabin owners with lease agreements with the Forest Service. The Echo Lakes Association protects the interests of and unifies the cabin owners, and provides support for environmental control.
    The collection has been divided into three series and arranged either chronologically (correspondence), alphabetically (subject files), or for ease of use (project and research files). Contents of folders reflect the order as received.
