What is there to do in Payson? What is there NOT to do in Payson! My family loves Payson and we never tire of outdoor activities year-round. I look forward to keeping all of our Payson Mom’s inspired with outdoor activities for the entire family.
Right now is the perfect time of year to enjoy Roosevelt Lake. Only 1 hour south of Payson on Highway 87 (you will need a Tonto pass to park, purchase one here: https://www.myscenicdrives.com/store/item/forest-passes/tonto). The sights are breathtaking!
You can enjoy the lake from the shore while playing in the water, overnight camping, and day picnicking as well with the entire family.
The temperatures in the fall are around 85 degrees during the day! Perfect for water play!
If you have a boat, adventure awaits you as you cruise around this amazing lake. Fishing is also great too. As the weather has cooled down from the scorching summer temps at Roosevelt the lake is also a great place to kayak!
