  • This is our go to RV camping spot just because it's a lake and so close to home (Tucson). We go during the week and camp in the East lot to avoid most of the craziness. You have to find something...

  • This was my 3rd visit and other than the area around the visitor's center ... the park is lacking. It used to be a great place to go birding but there are no more bird feeders out at the beginning...

  • Great, Great place to visit. We stayed for one week, it was awesome, we fished and hiked, bird watched, just a really fun week. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, that I caught a FIVE-pound big mouth...

  • Always a good time. Great beach area and roped off swimming section for the kids to enjoy. Rented a boat on this trip which was a big hit. We love spending as many summer weekends here as we can. The camping is great here too but, you have to reserve early because they fill up months in advance.
  • Beautiful spot! I've been coming here since high school and it's still beautiful and well kept. Had a great time on a 60 minute bird watching tour where our captain Winston slowly navigated the beautiful lake. Our guide was super nice and knowledgeable about the area birds. Great time!
  • Go here! Take a friend family whoever. Fun all day. The Ranger gave us a ride back to shore after hiking 1.5 hours around. Nice cuz it was a four minute ride back. Thanks guys. Made my first trip special.
  • My friends and I really enjoyed the cabin stay and the incredible views. I hated not being able to take my dog out to the beach area. So that is why I give only 4 stars. The birds sounded like I was in paradise. The sunrise and sunset was stunning. It felt so good to look at the stars in an open sky without any light disturbing. We rented a boat and had such a great time in the water. I will definitely be returning in the summer!
  • Had a blast here with my kids. Went out on a boat. Did some wake boarding. Finished up with some bluegill fishing with the kids. All around great experience
