Located on a hill overlooking Parker Canyon Lake, campsites are spread among a stand of oaks and junipers. From the campground it is just a short walk to the lakeshore or a short drive to the boat launch ramp, fishing pier, paved parking areas and paved walkways, all of which are accessible to persons with disabilities. A concessionaire-operated general store and boat rental combine with the facilities listed above to make this area a pleasant, friendly place to visit.


Parker Canyon Lake and Lakeview Campground are generally less crowded than similar areas that are more easily accessible. On some days you can hike the entire 5-mile trail around the lake and have only the resident wildlife for company. This trail has several viewing areas complete with benches and interpretive signs. Two of the viewing areas are barrier-free. It is an excellent place to view the waterfowl that either live at the lake or use it as a stopover on their seasonal migration. Bald eagles and osprey are also frequently sighted here, as are Coues white-tailed deer and an occasional extended family of coatimundi, those long-tailed, long-nosed southwestern cousins of the raccoon.


Location: Adjacent to Parker Canyon Lake at the southern end of the Canelo Hills.


Access:

From Tucson, drive east on Interstate 10 to the State Route 83 exit. Drive south to Sonoita, then continue on AZ 83 approximately 25 miles to Parker Canyon Lake.

From Sierra Vista, travel through Fort Huachuca’s west gate to State Route 83. Turn south and travel 10 miles to Parker Canyon Lake. Alternate from Sierra Vista: travel south on State Highway 92 about 14 miles to Coronado Memorial Road (FR 61) and drive 25 miles over Montezuma Pass on FR 61, then FR 48, along the south side of the Huachuca Mountains to Parker Canyon Lake.
