Attraction details
Owner description: The park along the lake, located in the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest, opened in 1994 as a result of cooperation between the U.S. Forest Service, Arizona State Parks, Arizona Game and Fish and the city of Show Low in partnership with Arizona Public Service and McCarty Construction Company. Today, visitors can camp among the tall pines and hike along the lake at a cool 6,300 feet in elevation. Year-round camping, fishing, picnicking, boating and wildlife viewing opportunities make Fool Hollow Lake Recreation Area a popular place.

“Trees, peace, and quiet in a cool place”
Reviewed April 11, 2012

This is a clean, safe place for families to camp and to fish in a peaceful place in tall trees. It is a surprise to find such a place nestled in the northern edge of Show Low, AZ. SAFEWAY, KMART, and many fast food outlets are out of view and hidden by forest only 2 miles away. Close by,the SHOW LOW CITY PARK has the best swimming pool and hot tub for a radius of 150 miles.

“Real Nice Place!!!”
Reviewed March 9, 2012

This campground is right in the middle of ShowLow yet it has the feel of being out in the woods!
This is a really great campground for RV'er as they have paved sites and hook-ups.
If while camping you should decide you need something from the store...no problem youre only a mile away.
If you get bored, you could always take in a movie at the local theatre.
This lake has some pretty fair fishing so bring your boat and fishing equipt!
Have a good time there!
