Mormon Lake

by: Editor on 9/13/2017

 

Just a few miles away, Sedona visitors will find one of the most beautiful lakes in Arizona. Directly fed from local snow melt and rain, this natural lake is hugged closely by big Ponderosa pines, nestled in a lush forest. It’s the perfect quiet retreat, ideal for late summer swimming and year-round fishing. In the summer, the 7,000-foot elevation makes it a crisp and refreshing getaway where temperatures rarely sneak into the 90s.

It’s also just 17 miles from Upper Lake Mary, another popular destination for hiking and fishing. You’ll find a variety of wildlife, such as deer or elk herds and even Pronghorn antelope. Keep an eye out for bald eagles while boating, windsurfing or picnicking.

Lakes and Recreation

Fishermen and women have the odds stacked in their favor thanks to well-stocked northern pike, trout and catfish. Fire rings, cooking grills, picnic tables and restroom facilities are also nearby, making Mormon Lake a popular day destination. Campgrounds are open through the end of September, but the lakes are also very convenient to your Sedona hotel.

Whether you’re looking for a leisurely stroll in the forest, the ultimate fishing destination or for a cool swim in natural waters, make Mormon Lake one of your Sedona destinations.
