Lyman Lake State Park


The welcoming committee at Lyman Lake is comprised of a small herd of buffalo that grazes beside the access road. The lake's 6,000 foot elevation and 1,500 acre surface area (there is no size restriction on boats) make it a favorite destination for water sports, camping, fishing, and hiking. Anglers are provided a restricted, no-wake area where they fish for channel catfish, walleye, northern pike, and largemouth bass. Other park features include a swimming beach, picnic ramadas, boat rentals, and hiking and rock-hounding trails. The lake is one mile off U.S. Route 191, about 11 miles south of St. Johns or 18 miles north of Springerville.
