“head for the outcroppings of Watson Lake”
Watson Lake is one of two reservoirs at the Granite Dells, outside of Prescott, Arizona, that was formed in the early 1900s when the Chino Valley Irrigation District built a dam on Granite Creek. The City of Prescott bought the reservoir and surrounding land in 1997 to preserve it as recreational land. Local rockclimbers use the granite cliffs above and adjacent to the lake for top-roping and lead climbing. This also the home of TriCity Prep Rowing Crew, a local high school team and only rowing team in Northern Arizona. With challenging canyons and soaring mountains, adventure-seekers can pick from an exciting menu of rock climbing options. In Prescott, rock climbers head for the outcroppings of Watson Lake.
Really an amazing hidden gem IMO. Great boulders and rock formations with beautiful blue water. Great for photographers (especially drones). Only about a 90 min drive from N Phoenix
Gorgeous place. A little out of the way, but so worth it. If you aren’t spending the night it only cost $3 per car to get in. A good place to spend an afternoon. It wasn’t crowded either!
