It’s no secret, Arizona’s weather during the next several months is going to be fantastic! It’s finally cooling off in the desert parks and hiking season has hit full stride. Wintering birds have returned to enjoy the relatively mild season and offer patrons a chance to see the winged beauty of these seasonal visitors. During this season, anglers shift their focus from bass and catfish to delicious trout at Dead Horse Ranch, Patagonia Lake, and Roper Lake state parks as the Arizona Game and Fish department loads these destinations with plenty of rainbows to go around.
Parks have begun to cool off considerably throughout the state, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the blustery high country from the comfort of a heated cabin rental. Seven parks throughout Arizona have comfortable cabins situated near lakes, among trails, and amid the beauty of your Arizona State Parks. Cabins sleep up to six people and come equipped with a fire ring, a grill, and outside seating in addition to the fully functional interior.
For larger groups, you can enjoy the parks under a group ramada! The ramadas offer covered seating and tables for up to 40 people, a great venue for holiday gatherings! You can enjoy the outdoors and celebrate the season no matter the size or scale of your get together.
Your parks have endless options for festive feasts, gatherings, and parties! Take advantage of Arizona's gorgeous fall and winter by spending it outdoors in unique venues!
