This is only about 13 minutes from the entrance of Payson Canyon, 8 minutes from Grotto Falls and 20 from the Payson Lakes Campground. To reserve a camping spot use There is no water available at this campground.


Unfortunately several years ago someone released a pet goldfish into Maple Lake and despite draining the lake and doing other measures, the goldfish population thrives.

There are also rainbow trout and brook trout, so there is good fishing.

When we were there there was a Caspian Tern circling the water!

Here is beautiful Maple Lake!
