The Canada Geese and ducks were peaceful to watch. There has excellent fishing pier and plenty of parking. Parking is also available at the ball field side. It is not easy to find. The nature center is also interesting again hard to find. Very limited...More

We took a walk around the lake (about 1 mile) at sunset and it was lovely. There were several ducks and geese to entertain us. The path is paved and is wheelchair accessible.

My dog and I walk the trail around the lake once a month. The other people waking are friendly. The walking trail is unsteady (lots of bumps and divets) but easy to walk. When the lake has water, it is beautiful. When it is low,...More

The lake has been nearly emptied by user down stream and is just a mud hole. Punic areas are still nice.

There are churches in Pinetop and I'm certain there are ministers available to perform marriage ceremonies. Check with the church offices. You will need an Arizona marriage license to have the service performed.
