The Underrated Lake In Arizona That Should Be Your New Go-To Destination

Most people living in Arizona have at least been to one of the many lakes throughout the state. And most are keenly aware that not all lakes are created equal. Some are better for fishing than others, some are large enough to spend an entire weekend exploring by way of boat, and so on. One of the most versatile lakes with a well-rounded list of activities is centrally located, and is a must-visit for every outdoor adventure seeker.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
