Hyatt Lake has great scenery with good forest
land and snow capped peaks in view most of the
year. The area around Hyatt Lake is filled with
deer, eagles, osprey and other wildlife which
can often be seen around the lake. Located in
the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument, it is
the first U.S. National monument set aside
solely for the preservation of biodiversity.
With a diverse ecosystem, 200 species of birds
are known to exist in the monument including
some threatened and endangered species such as
the spectacular Great Grey Owl and Peregrine
Falcon. The unusual Rough-skinned newt can be
spotted by the keen eyed observer. In addition,
the Cascade–Siskiyou National Monument is famous
for its significant botanical diversity. The
range of elevations and diversity of habitat
types provides for a spectacular flora that
includes many endemics to the immediate Siskiyou
crest area such as the exquisite Oregon Lily.
The namesake of Hyatt Prairie Lake, Hyatt
Prairie, existed as a high prairie with such
extreme freeze-thaw cycles that trees were
unable to grow, as a result, species of plants
that exist at Hyatt are found only in parts of
Alaska. During May and June, these conditions
make the area a favorite hunting area for those
who relish the mushrooms: Morels and
