Boating

Wakeboarding at Lyman Lake State ParkVisitors 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.

Boat Ramps

Lyman Lake State Park has two paved boat ramps available for use. Both ramps are located inside the park just north of the Ranger Station/Park Store:

  • The north boat ramp has a double wide lane.
  • The east boat ramp is a single lane ramp that only allows one boat to launch at a time.

Non-Motorized Watercraft

Canoes, kayaks, and other non-motorized watercraft may launch at either boat ramp or from shore.
