This is just a short post today to let everyone know that Watson Lake Park is has officially reopened to the public!
Goldwater Lake re-opened May 8th.
The multiple crews and agencies fighting the Crooks Fire had their base camp set up at Watson but now that the fire’s been expertly handled the crews are heading back to their home bases allowing for full use of Watson Lake Park and its trails.
We’d like to thank all of the different agencies that battled the first wildfire of the season. Thank you to the ground and air crews for keeping Prescott safe.
Please note that Stage 1 Fire Restrictions are now in effect for the Prescott area and Prescott National Forest. You can read about them here in the Forest Service News Release
