Kinnikinick Lake, 38 miles south of Flagstaff is one of those small remote lakes that is relatively easy to get to. With the San Francisco Peaks on the horizon, you can camp and fish for trout. Prairies of juniper pine surround Kinnikinick that typically abound with Pronghorn Antelope. Bald eagles are often seen during the fall and winter months. Kinnikinick is not a crowded lake so it's a good tranquil place to enjoy the outdoors. Elevation is 7,000 feet with cool refreshing summer temperatures that rarely reach 90 degrees Fahrenheit.
