The main attraction at Riggs Flat Campground is Riggs Flat Lake. Some come to fish in it, some to boat on it, and some just to enjoy the reflective beauty this small (11 acre) lake adds to such a scenic area. The dam which forms was financed by the Arizona Game and Fish Department in 1957 to provide trout fishing for forest recreationists. The Department now stocks its waters with rainbow trout about once a month from May 15 through September 14. Brown and brook trout are stocked once a year in October.
