Thank you for taking time to read about the Verde Lakes Recreation Corp.. which is located in the southeast section of Camp Verde, AZ. We are a community of around 600 rural homes just inside Coconino Forest. We have a two-tier lakes/ponds with a walkway in between. The children in the area walk down the road to the ponds to fish, reminiscent of a time dating back to Tom Sawyer. In the fall, the snow geese from the north and Canada stop at the lakes to rest, and then again on their way back home in the spring. At any given time, up to 400 will land and feed on the foliage. This has happened for more than 100 years because stock ponds make for well-traveled routes. We are also visited by deer, wild pigs, and birds of all types. We have about 25 ducks, geese and swans that are here year-around. There are also dog-walking trails and picnic areas.
We have a membership of $35.00 per family that has helped in the past to keep the grounds clean and safe. Donated by the developer Mr. Elmer Moody of Verde Lakes, the recreation area and lakes have been open to the community since 1982 when the park incorporated. Contact us for membership or please make a donation to help your park.
We are in need of funds to clear some trees that fell in the lake during a strong tornado-like storm in the spring that damaged many homes and our park area. We wish to put in a few Ramada for the picnic areas, new modern tables because our wooden ones are almost beyond repair. We need to sure up the sides around the lakes and have a part-time care taker. A small play ground for the younger children at the top lake would be nice.

We are in dire need of funds to get the big tree cut up and out of the lake before it breaches the bladder, which keeps the water in the lake. If the bladder cracks, the water will go down hill and cause problems on the slope. Bringing the park back to a safe usable area is second.
