Lake Montezuma

City-north-central-arizona

 

 

The unincorporated communities of Lake Montezuma and Rimrock enjoy the pristine mountain air of the Verde Valley.  Sycamore and Cottonwood trees line the green belt riparian areas, and several large ponds host migrating birds.  We have beautiful dark skies with the Milky Way very visible and striking views of the red rocks, the riparian area, the golf course, or the ridges, from just about anywhere in the area.  

  
Centrally located, our villages start near Exit 293 at McGuireville on I-17.  Located one exit south of Sedona, it is 35 minutes to Prescott Valley, 45 minutes to Flagstaff, and 1 hour, 30 minutes from Phoenix. Historic Camp Verde offers many tourist and recreational opportunities just 15 minutes down the road and the old mining town of Jerome is a great place for breakfast and shopping for original works by local artists.

 

Central Lake Montezuma began as a planned area development in the mid-1960's around the Beaver Creek Golf course and includes 36 subdivisions in Rimrock and Lake Montezuma.  It has a small retail plaza which includes Rollins Park, a post office, restaurants, a medical facility, and tourist-oriented retail shops. The county helped residents create Sycamore Park.  This park has a play ground, walking trails, picnic areas and access to the creek for swimming and fishing.

The region is sometimes known as Beaver Creek because the stream has played a large role in the history of the area. The headwaters of Beaver Creek begin in the northern high country and the stream descends from the Mogollon Rim to its junction with the Verde River in lower country at Camp Verde. The total identifiable length of its course is about fifty miles.

The area boasts its own school district, (Beaver Creek School District, grades k-8), a modern fire station, a post office and several important tourist attractions. Montezuma Castle and Montezuma Well are two of the most famous attractions.
