Property Area Description:

Petrified Forest National Park - located just 10 miles away from this property is the internationally famous Petrified Forest National Park, the largest park where visitors can walk among giant fallen petrified wood.

Meteor Crater - 50,000 years ago, with an explosive force greater than 20 million tons of TNT, a meteorite estimated to be about 150 feet across, slammed into the earth just a half-day's drive from Southern Apache County. Accessible via Interstate 40, the crater is 550 feet deep, 2.4 miles in circumference, and is open to the public. The Museum of Astrogeology, interpretive displays, guided rim trail hike, gift shop, and snack bar are found in the Visitor's Center.

Lyman Lake State Park - Located just minutes from St. Johns and Springerville, this 1,180-acre park encompasses the shoreline of the man-made reservoir. As one of the largest lakes in northeastern Arizona, there are no size restrictions on boats, thus allowing for speed boats and water skiing. The park features improved campgrounds and hookups, and its group ramadas are popular locations for local residents. Paved boat ramps, restrooms, showers, and a small herd of buffalo that reside in the park make the park a unique destination for residents and visitors. Special interpretive programs, tournaments, and fireworks are available throughout the summer months.

Sunrise Ski Resort - 65 runs over three mountains, separate snowboarding area, cross country ski trails, and a special children's area make this resort one of the most popular in the southwest. Owned and operated by the White Mountain Apache Tribe, the high speed quad chairlifts, with a capacity in excess of 16,000 skiers per hour, are also open during the spring months for scenic viewing.

Big Lake Recreation Area/Apache-Sitgreaves National Forests - An integral part of the communities is the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forests, home to one of the largest Ponderosa Pine stands in the world. The 2-million acre forest is home to more than 410 species of wildlife. Each year, the 35 lakes, 680 miles of streams, 36 campgrounds, and over 950 miles of trails are visited over 5 million times. The Big Lake Recreation Area is home to one of the largest newly developed recreation facilities, featuring improved campgrounds, hookups, and shower facilities. During the winter months, the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest is also home to one of the largest winter recreation areas in the southwest, where cross-country skiing trails, snowmobile rentals, and sledding areas are open to the public.

Monument Valley - Each year, millions of visitors, principally from Europe and Asia, flock to this internationally famous destination on the northernmost portion of the Navajo Nation. Here, visitors can drive into the park in private vehicles, escorts with local Navajo Tour Guides, or for a fee, camp in the park. A Visitor's Center provides food and areas for demonstration of native arts and crafts, many of which are for sale. Monument Valley is famous for its spectacularly scenic overlooks, and is a favorite destination for Hollywood producers since the era of the John Ford western, to current day film and commercials.
