Arizona’s state parks offer an economical option for summer
vacations, providing more than 1,000 campsites for campers. Parks
such as Fool Hollow Lake Recreation Area in Show Low are booking
quickly and Roper Lake in Safford is popular since it is next to
Mount Graham. Lyman Lake near Springerville will be open June
17-Oct. 17 and the park has cabins, yurts, a swimming beach and hot
showers. If you choose the yurts and cabins your family can stay
for $35-$50 a night. The campsites in the parks also offer many
amenities, including hot showers.
