While I attended camp with my grandson Tom checked out a lake located very close to Prescott Pines Campground.
We stayed two nights at Prescott Pines Campground. The lake is about a mile and a half hike (round trip) from the campground. Tom said there is a very nice paved use area near the lake where you can park. It is ideally suitedfor day use with picnic tables, bathrooms and lots of benches along a lovely trail that encircles the lake. Tom felt it was as nice as any of the lakes up on the Mogollon Rim and easier to get to from Phoenix!
