Besides being on the banks of the beautiful Tonto Creek we have several nearby lakes. Woods canyon, Willow Springs, Knoll, Bear Canyon, Chevelon and Black Canyon Lakes. There are many wonderful activities right at your door. Fishing in our stocked trout pond, scenic hikes, wild flowers, fossils and enjoying drives along the Rim Rd., with its panoramic views are a few ways to soak up the relaxing area.

Wild game such as turkey, elk, deer, coyote and bear are often spotted in the forest. Children love wading in the creek or they may delight in horseback riding nearby. Cross country skiing and snow shoeing are also close by. We are only 2 miles to Zane Grey's former cabin site and the state fish hatchery.
