About Bear Canyon Lake
A beautiful, narrow, canyon-bound lake, Bear Canyon Lake is one of several in a series of fishing lakes built by Arizona Game and Fish Department. Despite being several miles down a dirt road and having few amenities, it draws many visitors. The partially developed campground which is set among the mixed conifer, oak and aspen, has only limited amenities. Bear Canyon Lake is a “Pack it in – Pack it out” area. There is NO GARBAGE SERVICE. Please be good stewards of the land and leave the area better than how you found it.

For purposes of fire restrictions, this campground is considered to be an ‘undeveloped’ campground. No fires will be permitted when fire restrictions are in effect for the Apache-Sitgreaves Forest.

Just off Bear Canyon Lake, approximately 14 miles northwest of AZ-260 on FR-89. FR-89 is accessed via FR-300 which is located directly across from the Rim Visitor Information Station or 25 miles west of Heber, Arizona.
