Reservations are Highly Recommended.


Very close to the Mexico Border, Patagonia Lake State Park is a great spot to set up camp and enjoy a relaxing day.

Restroom and Shower facilities are included in your campground fees. Boat rentals and other activities are available.


Less than 3 hours from Phoenix


A quick drive on I-10 E will take you most of the way out of Phoenix and towards Tucson. AZ-83 S takes over from the I-19 as you get closer to your destination.


Patagonia Lake State Park was established in 1975. The park offers a number of amenities including campground, beach, picnic areas with Ramada's, tables and grills, a creek trail, boat ramps, and a marina.


The Campground Area is very well kept and offers decent space between Campsites so you don't have quite as crowded of a feel. The Restroom/Shower facilities were extremely clean and well maintained. We will definitely be making a return trip to check out more of what the park has to offer.

We had an amazing weekend at Patagonia Lake. There are some spectacular views and hiking trails to enjoy. There are some areas that you are not allowed to take pets, but a majority of the campground and lake area is pet friendly.

There are multiple Pet Waste Pickup Bag dispensers placed through out the campground areas to assist with keeping the park clean and beautiful for future visitors.
