The granite dells are an Arizona hidden gem with rock formations that you won't want to miss.
Watson Lake is a small man-made reservoir that sits just outside of downtown Prescott. The lake has large granite boulders and exposed bedrock that line the shores.
Enjoy a plethora of activities at Watson Lake including hiking, biking, kayaking, paddelboarding and much more. You can make your way around the whole lake in just under five miles. With a playground, horseshoe courts, a disc gold course, a bocce ball court, multiple picnic areas and ramadas there is plenty to see and do while at Watson Lake.
The lake is only about five miles from downtown Prescott where you can find many hotels accommodations. You can camp on the lake at the Point of Rocks RV Campground or at one of the many nearby campsites.
