Hey water we can actually get in... or kayak on. It's alright, and a bit small, but is great in the desert heat.

We haven't had a chance to actually canoe on the lake, although you can rent canoes there. What we enjoy is hiking the trails around the lake. The trails aren't difficult and you can choose how far you want to go. The lake itself is lovely as Arizona lakes go--we don't have a lot of water around here so we appreciate what we DO have. Plenty of free parking there and restroom facilities too. No fee for the Lake although it can take awhile to get there if you go via Patagonia. It's faster through Fort Huachuca but not easy to find.

The walk around the lake is pleasant and we saw a Bald Eagle. BUT, the camp ground is a disgrace. We visited on a Monday and were the only people there. The camp ground is obviously a favourite with fishermen at weekends. Every camp site was littered with cigarette ends and beer can ring pulls. Every fire pit was full of beer cans. There was not one clean site on the entire camp ground. We drove away and camped elsewhere.

nice for a day picnic but would not camp or sleep there...if you want to get away from it all I guess this could be a good option...
