Looking for a relaxing summer haven to escape to? Goldwater Lake is located only 4 miles from Prescott. Though a smaller sized lake at 15 acres, there are many ways to enjoy it! There are picnic areas, hiking, canoeing, kayaking, and boating. Only electronic motors are allowed on the lake and there is no swimming. There is however a boat ramp for public use. If you don’t have your own kayaks or canoes, you can rent them during lake hours from Prescott Outdoors. Although Goldwater Lake is open all year long, the hours are specific to the time of year. Look below for more information on lake hours. If you are looking to spend time around the lake instead of in it there are many ways to do it! Goldwater Lake is surrounded by hiking that connects to the Prescott National Forest, picnic tables, grills, horse shoe pits, a sand volley ball court, and a children’s playground. The area has restrooms as well. This beautiful lake is only 9 minutes from Prescott and a place the entire family can enjoy loads of summer fun!
