Patagonia Lake State Park
Patagonia Lake State Park information
Lonely Planet review
A brilliant blue blip dolloped into the mountains, 2.5-mile-long Patagonia Lake was formed by the damming of Sonoita Creek. About 7 miles southwest of Patagonia, the lake is open year-round. At 4050ft above sea level, buffeted by lake and mountain breezes, the air is cool – making this a perfect spot for camping, picnicking, walking, bird-watching, fishing, boating and swimming. The campsite makes a fine base for exploring the region.
