FOOL HOLLOW LAKE RECREATION AREA Fishing 09/22 Amphitheater The amphitheater and interpretive area is located between the no-hookup camping loops and the RV loops. Interpretive programs are held in the amphitheater, weather permitting. Ask at the ranger station about current programs; topics include wildlife, wildfire, geology, or special programs. Established 1957 Fool Hollow Lake Recreation Area Year-round camping, fishing, picnicking, boating, and wildlife viewing make Fool Hollow Lake Recreation Area a popular place. This cool country recreation area has a 150-acre lake surrounded by towering pine trees and offers 92 hookup sites and 31 non-hookup tent camping sites. The park was named when Thomas Jefferson Adair moved into the area in 1885 to start a farm. The locals joked that only a fool would try to farm the land, and the name stuck! Arizona State Parks & Trails would like to thank its partners who worked to develop this recreation area – the US Forest Service, Arizona Game & Fish, the City of Show Low, and corporate sponsors Arizona Public Service and McCarty Construction Company.
