Great lake on the outskirts of Show Low. You can camp or use the day areas. Fishing is good and there is an easy trail to hike around the lake. Fun for the whole family. With the forests in this area closed due to the extreme fire dangers, this is a great alternative.
A campfire must be extinguished by drowning it with water, stirring with a shovel, and repeating that process until the campfire is cold to the touch. A campfire is still a danger if it has any trace of heat, and must not be left or abandoned. Wildfires can begin by abandoned campfires that rebuild heat on windy days and then blowing embers ignite surrounding grasses and brush.
