In 1937, an earth and rock dam, 103 feet high and 550 feet long, was constructed in Ogden Valley under the direction of the Bureau of Reclamation. The purpose of the dam was to control and store Ogden River flood waters. This created Pineview Reservoir with a storage capacity of 44,175 acre-feet. In 1957, an enlargement of the original structure was completed. The 132-foot high and 600-foot long dam increased the capacity to its present 110,000 acre-feet. The Forest Service began management of the recreation facilities at the reservoir on September 21, 1940.

This reservoir is the busiest in the State of Utah for it's size. Dogs are welcome anywhere along the shoreline EXCEPT at the developed beaches at Cemetery Point, Middle Inlet, or Anderson Cove.

The reservoir has buoys marking areas of the water surface designated with speed or boating restrictions. The limit of the number of boats on the lake at one time is monitored at the ramps.
