Patagonia Lake State Park

THE ROLLING HILLS OF SOUTHEASTERN ARIZONA CONCEAL A HIDDEN TREASURE – PATAGONIA LAKE STATE PARK. 

History & Nature

This 265-acre manmade lake is an ideal spot to catch crappie, bass, bluegill, and catfish. Trout is in abundance between October and March, so you can keep coming back for more! Stroll along the creek trail and see if you can spot birds such as canyon towhee, Inca dove, vermilion flycatcher, black vulture, and hummingbirds.

Things to Do

More than fishing and birdwatching, the park is also an amazing place for camping. With a beach, picnic area, ramadas, tables, grills, boat ramps, a marina, and the Lakeside Market, there’s plenty to fill your leisurely days with laid-back fun.

The state park is 2.5 miles long and 250 surface acres, so there’s plenty of space for all visitors. Water sports are incredibly popular (for good reason) here, so water skiing or towing a recreational device is prohibited on weekends and holidays from May 1st through September 30th.

Hotels, Lodging & Camping

Whether you’re in the mood for a day trip or a longer camping excursion, Patagonia Lake State Park will fit the bill. You can reserve a campground RV or tent site and enjoy this beautiful area.
