Easily one of the most beautiful and accessible lakes in Arizona has to be Woods Canyon Lake on the Mogollon rim. https://www.google.com/maps/place/Mogollon+Rimfirstname.lastname@example.org,-110.9498898,15z/data=!4m2!3m1!1s0x872c690b96e7a2a3:0x9932419faab118d1 This lake has two campgrounds Aspen and Spillway. Spillway is right on the lake so reservations are a must. And if you want to reserve for a holiday weekend well, good luck. There is a great little store right on the lake that has everything you need. They even rent trolling motor boats! Bald Eagles nest here and often put on a show for you. Just toss a fish out on the lake surface with one nearby and enjoy the show. Lots of Osprey Hawks too and they are fun to watch as they dive for a fish. Poor hawks though, if they do get a fish and the eagle sees them why, the eagle chases them down and steals it LOL There is a nice trail all the way around the lake and it's rather easy. Fishing is typical trout and usually good. During the summer the area is an excellent escape from the desert floor but be aware, holiday weekends are very busy. There are several lakes in the area so it's easy to jump from one to another during the day. Woods Canyon Lake, highly recommended.
