Patagonia Lake is a beautiful lake nestled in the hills near Nogales, south of Tucson and is the centerpiece of Patagonia Lake State Park. It is conveniently located near a number of top Arizona attractions, including Kartchner Caverns and Tombstone, Arizona. The lake spans over 250 acres and is 2-1/2 miles long.
Patagonia Lake is popular for a variety of recreational activities, including camping, picnicking, water skiing, fishing, and hiking. Created by the damming of Sonoita Creek, the lake is habitat for bass, bluegill, crappie, and catfish, and is stocked with rainbow trout during the winter. For anglers’ sake, the east half of the lake is designated a no wake area. Fishing docks for handicapped anglers is located at the Patagonia Marina and behind the Sonoita Creek visitor center.
