El Mirage Lake bed- El Mirage, CA

The lake bed is a flat playa formed in an undrained basin. Silt and clay are deposited into this basin during periods of heavy rain. When the "lake" dries, a hard pan dry lake bed is left. This hard, smooth surface is ideal for the unique activities conducted at El Mirage. These include ultra-light aircraft and gyrocopter flying, model rocketry, remote control airplane flying, land-sailing and straight track racing. Many private pilots land on the lake bed to spend the day. The surface character has attracted the interest of many filming companies. Several major movies have scenes filmed here.
