White Mountain Fishing And Camping

I wanted to write a new segment to our blog and mention some of the wonderful outdoor qualities the White Mountains has to offer. Arizona is a great state with many wonderful scenic destinations and breath taking landscapes. As you know, or if you don’t know, people from Tucson, Phoenix and across Arizona come to the White Mountains to escape the heat to enjoy the wonderful recreational activities this amazing place has.

When I was a young boy, my father used to bring me up the White Mountains to fish and camp on the North Fork of the White River, which is located 15 miles southeast of Pinetop. It was a great place for my father to teach me how to fish for trout on the streams and introduced me to camping. Every year we would make an annual trip to White Mountains every August to enjoy the beautiful forests and cool climate. We continued to come up here from when I was the age of 5 until I was 21 years old. It has become a tradition that I never want to end. As I became older, I began bringing my friends from Tucson to this beautiful country and they to fell in love with Show Low, Lakeside, Pinetop and the surrounding lakes and streams. To this day, whether it would be family or friends, we all try to attend our annual camping trip and enjoy the White Mountain outdoors.

My Home I Rented In Lakeside, Arizona

On my 28th birthday I had made the decision that I wanted to move from Tucson and rent a house in the White Mountains to see if I could see myself living here. In October of 2008, I packed up all of my belongings and rented a Uhaul and made the move. I got in contact with a property management firm in Lakeside, and they found me a beautiful home on a lake / pond. The house I was renting was amazing, you could even fish off my front patio because it was so close to the lake. Two years past by without even blinking and eye because of the fun I was having and outdoor activities that were all around me. I enjoyed the summers for the fishing, camping, hunting, 4 wheeling, hiking, summer nights, ect… And the winters for the snowboarding, sledding, snow, crisp air, warm fires, ect… After two years of living on the mountain, I made the decision to buy a home. An agent from Century 21 showed me properties for roughly 3 months before I bought a home. I now live in Show Low, by Fools Hollow lake. I was very pleased with the smooth process and constant contact with my agent during the entire home buying process.

The moral of my story is that, if you have a family or your single and enjoy the outdoors like I do, then follow your dreams. I always imagined that I would buy a home in the White Mountains where there were pine trees on my property. If your looking for a new cabin retreat or buying your first home, you won’t be disappointed. Raise a family in great weather and less crime that you won’t find in the major cities of Arizona.
