Camping Cabins

Enjoy your stay in a log cabin by the lake

Lakeside Cabin RentalWithin the shadows of Mount Graham lies an opportunity for adventure and your home base could be an air-conditioned cabin rental on the shores of a beautiful southern Arizona lake. With so much area to explore in this area, it makes sense to recharge in comfort. This park is home to a large variety of bird species, offers great seasonal fishing, and is within close proximity to one of Arizona's most beautiful "Sky Island" mountain ranges. Imagine waking up to the fog lifting slowly from the lake, walking outside and casting a line. As the fog lifts to expose the sun of a new day, the distant mountains are exposed and calling you to experience the adventure. You bring the mindset...We'll supply a place to stay, and the the peace of mind you've made a great decision to be here. 

Cabin reservations are available online or by calling the friendly folks at our Reservation Desk (877) MY-PARKS. We're available seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Arizona time.

Eight cabins line the lake at Roper Lake State Park offering lots of recreational opportunities. Cabins at Roper Lake are variably furnished with bunk beds with mattresses and/or full-size beds with mattress. The cabins are outfitted with electricity and air-conditioning/heating.
