Williams' Watering Hole
by Hippy

Kaibab Lake Recreation Site covers roughly 45 acres of National Forest and houses less than 2 miles of paved roads, an amphitheater, boat dock, camping sites and one quaint restroom.

Though boating and fishing are allowed, swimming is not permitted in the less than 40 foot deep Kaibab Lake. It is a water source for the city of Williams. The lake is stocked with rainbow, brown and brook trout, an angler's dream lake...in Williams.


The cruise along the shoreline of the lake is simple, flat and short. There is a faint route that will lead you in the full loop. I found the "start" of said loop to be just past the floating dock on the west end of the "lake". It looks like a game trail but you'll see right away how well worn it is in a few "scenic" spots.

If you find yourself stuck in Williams for a few days, with nothing to do, and a fishing pole in hand...this is probably the best place to go to hook a trout. Other than that you really don't need to add this to your "To Do" list.
