Wakeboarding at Lyman Lake State ParkWakeboarding at Lyman Lake State Park

Visitors will find plenty of room to water ski, wakeboard, or cruise around this big eastern Arizona lake, and they can do so without motor size restrictions! Imagine wakeboarding at this scenic location knowing that the lake is large enough for you to enjoy safely! Lyman Lake State Park invites all watercraft users to enjoy the lake, but we ask that you do so responsibly. That means ensuring that your watercraft meets all of the state's regulations for motorized and non-motorized watercrafts.

Here are a few tips to help visitors "navigate" the use of watercrafts on Lyman Lake:

  • There are no restrictions on boat or motor sizes.
  • Sailboats and sailboarders do very well light winds traveling down the valley.
  • Personal watercraft and jet skis are commonly launched from shore or ramp.
  • Skiing and wakeboarding may be done in the center of the lake and on the northwest end.
