About Luna Lake Wildlife Area
The Luna Lake Wildlife Area is nestled in the White Mountains, offering a cool, high-elevation escape from the desert heat in summer. The area provides opportunities for the whole family, ranging from trout fishing and waterfowl hunting to watching a resident pair of bald eagles raise their young, or just plain relaxing. In addition to the lake itself, the nearby wetlands and forests provide great opportunities to view wildlife for nature lovers of all ages.

The Luna Lake Wildlife Area provides a wide array of recreational opportunities, including wildlife watching, hunting, trout fishing, hiking, and boating. This area provides the only quality resting, feeding, and nesting habitat for migratory and resident waterfowl in the upper San Francisco River Valley. Several thousand waterfowl use it during the early spring as a rest area during their migration north, providing fantastic bird-watching opportunities. Abundant waterfowl in the fall months provide recreational opportunity for waterfowl hunters. In addition to waterfowl and trout fishing, the uplands are managed for regular use by elk.
