looking for places in Arizona to kayak
Posted by: woofbeast on Apr-22-13 2:01 AM (EST)
I'm out in Marana, no where close by to go. I'm willing to travel two or three hours. I'm looking for a quiet place to camp, read a book and with no one within earshot, if possible. Anyplace like that?

...on my drives from Colorado to visit my mom in Saddlebrooke. I take Hwy 60 from Socorro, NM and drive through Showlow and the Salt River Canyon, so I go by these places. I just have not had the opportunity to check them out. Using Google Maps to browse the White mountains shows a few other places that look like you can paddle around and camp. None of these places look large.

There are a couple of rim lakes that you might try. Knoll lake is a favorite of mine. We sometimes paddled across the lake and camped. It's about midway between Payson and Woods Canyon Lake turnoff. Any lake will have people around, but most will be near the boat ramp / dam. Bear Canyon Lake is more remote, but I believe you will need to carry the boat down to the lake. Both have tall pines to provide shade. Willow Springs, and Black Canyon Lake are closer to Heber. They have easy highway access = more people. But are still nice.
