The rugged, boulder strewn cliffs of Granite Mountain Wilderness provide a scenic setting for this campground at an elevation of 5,600 feet among ponderosa pines. From here it is a short walk to the shore of Granite Basin Lake.

Granite Basin Lake is man-made and about 5 surface acres. It is not stocked with fish. Although fishing is usually rated as only fair to poor, the patient angler can often catch bluegill, largemouth bass, or catfish. A State of Arizona fishing license is required for anglers over the age of 13 years. Boats with electric motors only are allowed on the lake and swimming is not permitted.

Campsites are generally large enough to accommodate parking for most recreational vehicles and camping trailers not exceeding 40 feet in length.

Prescott: An Arizona Gem Prescott: An Arizona Gem Prescott: An Arizona Gem
Central ArizonaPrescott is a destination that transcends the Arizona archetype. No sweltering summers or miles of cactus covered moonscape. The town’s mile-high location in the Grand Canyon State’s central highlands brings four mild seasons, an average annual daytime temperature of about seventy degrees, and over 300 days of sunshine.
