My family has been coming up for years and the place just keeps getting better!!! You can tell there is a real pride of ownership and everyone is really helpful and friendly. This year they gave us a free deck of "Christopher Creek" playing cards, which was extra great because we forgot our cards. Lots of fish in the creek,... More

We recently stayed in a cabin on the creek, it was absolutely beautiful and peaceful. The grounds and cabins are well-kept and clean, and very rustic. The lodge area is surrounded by natural beauty and is a very quiet, relaxing place to stay. The cabin was clean and had a small kitchen, which was very convenient. Thanks for a great... More

I had to get out of the heat of Phx/Tempe, and so went up for just one night in the tandem's as you need to rent the whole weekend for the Cabins. Even though the tandem isn't right next to the creek, I got to go down there and just stick my feet in the creek and relax. It is... More

I really love this place. This was our second trip. The cabin we stayed in was right on the creek with a back porch and personal BBQ for grilling. My kid loved the swings and they are pet friendly with a nice dog park. Great getaway from Phoenix area and a very beautiful drive. Lakes are 10 minutes away. I... More

We were very happy with our cabin, it was clean, well stocked and right on the creek. My teenage boys loved walking out the back door to the creek and throwing their fishing lines in and it is a very short distance up to Woods Canyon Lake and Willow Springs. We will definitely stay again to get away from heat... More

Christopher Creek is a funky little community maybe 20 minutes outside of Payson. There are two restaurants, a friendly store and three lodging opportunities. All three share the same ownership. We have stayed at all three but generally prefer Christopher Creek Lodge as it does sit along the creek and is located between both restaurants, each of which is a... More

I had the pleasure of staying at the lodges with my family. We enjoyed every bit of the outdoors that this area of our incredible State has to offer. We really enjoyed the sound of the water all around the property as well as the smell and sound of pines. We could not have asked for more.
