Roper Lake State Park, Arizona

December 15, 2011 - We left City of Rocks in New Mexico, and drove about 200 miles to Roper Lake State Park 6 miles south of Safford, Arizona. Again we had a nice site with hookups - and if the lake had had sufficient water, we would have had a waterfront site.  However, we were dismayed to learn that the water level was extremely low and no trout had been planted for months.  The main reason we came to this park was so Don could fish - so we stayed 2 nights and got a refund for 2 more.

The best thing about this park was the view to the west of Mt. Graham and the PinaleƱo Mountains. Most of the time they had clouds around the top.

Our view to the west the day we arrived.

You can see the lake - which would be much closer if it had more water

No need for the float tube here!

I believe the lights are from the Safford Copper Mine

TOO bad the lake was so low...the view sure is pretty there...Hope you enjoyed your stay in spite of the lake level being low!
