The lake is accessible from April through December, weather permitting. Arizona Game and Fish Department stocks the lake with catchable size rainbow and brook trout, making it a popular destination for fishermen. The scenery alone is worth a visit with beautiful mountains, open meadows and pine forests.


Crescent Lake is about 30 miles southwest of Springerville at the junction of Highways 261 and 273 (Forest Road 113.) There is no admission fee but fishing requires a license and trout stamp.
