Watson Lake (Prescott) by Michael Wilson
When you think of Arizona, do you imagine aspens, Ponderosa Pines, streams, fly fishing, and a landscape much like the Pacific Northwest? If not, the town of Hon-Dah, located on the northern edge of the White Mountain Apache Indian tribal lands, may change your perception of Arizona.
If you dream of spending your afternoon fishing, take a seat on the shore of Sunrise Lake on the White Mountain Apache tribal lands, where Arizona’s state fish – the Apache Trout – might find itself at the end of your line. The area is also known for its world-class hunting of trophy elk, not to mention hiking galore.
Sunrise Park Resort – at an elevation of 11,100 feet – beckons skiers and snowboarders in the winter. Before you go, it’s fun to check out the webcam, which is sponsored by the Hon-Dah Casino and aimed at the breathtaking view of the Apache Peak Lodge at the summit of Apache Mountain.
The Hon-Dah Resort & Casino, with top-notch entertainment and restaurants, is owned by the White Mountain Apache Tribe. The high-energy casino and its tranquil surroundings offer the perfect mix to make everyone feel at home. In fact, Hon-Dah is an Apache word meaning “be my guest.”
