Had no idea what to expect as I just took the exit on impulse to check out the place. Didn't even know how far it was till I saw a sign later that said it was some 9 miles further down a deserted but well paved and very nice road. The lake itself is very beautiful and a great place for a family picnic if you want to get away from the crowd.

I just wanted to mention the beauty of Pena Blanca Lake. The surroundings allow the user to enjoy a mixture of S. AZ. landscape, with the addition of the small but ample 49 acre lake. Once you enter the canyon by way of 289, you soon are drawn in by the beautiful transition from desert scrub and cactus, to the colorful juniper and limestone bluffs. I reccomend a visit for anyone who enjoys the outdoors! My experience was primarily focused on paddling around the lake via kayak. Although miniscule in comparison to lakes such as Apache, or the grandness of paddling in the open ocean; I truly enjoyed this experience.
