Parker Canyon Lake Park

Birdwatchers and nature lovers will find much to do at Parker Canyon Lake.

At 5,375 feet in elevation, the lake is tucked into rolling hills covered with grasses and oak trees and surrounded by distant mountains. 132-acres are stocked rainbow trout and resident bass, sunfish, and catfish, and offer ample boating and swimming opportunities. A lakeside trail meanders along part of the lake, providing scenic views of the lake and good wildlife watching.

There is a store to purchase supplies and a nearby campground. Take Hwy 83 south for about 50 miles and follow signs to Parker Canyon Lake.

Entrance Fees: No fee for day use. Fee for overnight camping
