Are you looking to escape the city and enjoy the outdoors?In a region peppered with former rough-and-tumble mining towns, Lake Montezuma, with its sister community of Rimrock, is a desert oasis built around the Beaver Creek Golf Course.Of course, plenty of Arizona history lies within easy reach. Historic Camp Verde and the old mining town of Jerome are nearby, as are Montezuma Castle and Montezuma Well National Monument. Prefer to stick around town? Central Lake Montezuma has a retail plaza that will appeal to any visitor, with a park, restaurants, a post office, and shops. Nearby, lovely Sycamore Park offers a playground, walking trails, picnic areas, and creek access for swimming and fishing.
