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.

This is a great place for fishing, camping, picnicking. You can reserve one of the ramadas for a large party, such as reunion or wedding. You can also rent kayaks right at the lake during the summer.

This recreation area is a hidden jewel for travelers in this area. The camp sites are in the pines, well spaced and exceptionally clean and cared for. There are many hiking paths to and around the lake and a great fishing dock and benches to sit and enjoy the peace. We stayed 3 days on our month long trip because it was so beautiful. Don't miss it if you are in the area.

This is a great recreational area. Beautiful lake with great RV campsites (mostly for less than 34 feet but some big rigs no larger than 40 feet can be accommodated). Nice picnic shelters for large groups. You can really feel like being back to nature when staying in the area. Lots of birds, geese, cranes and deer. Great place to spend time with family and reconnecting with kids and parents!

The restrooms were extremely clean. The view of the lake was amazing. We will come again with our children! Quiet clean fun!

If you're from Arizona and not used to seeing lakes, this apparently is the place to go. If you're from anywhere with water, this is disappointing. It is in a developed area with housing (which also means good internet and phone available), the lake is small and unremarkable.
