Hawley Lake is a 300-acre (120 ha) lake and place in east-central Arizona, in the White Mountain Apache Indian Reservation, and has an elevation of 8,200 feet (2,500 m). [1]

The lake is a remnant of Pliocene volcanism on the Mogollon Rim [2] but it has been artificially extended as a reservoir for downstream irrigation plus trout and ice fishing (though an $9 tribal licence is required to fish on the reservation). Its popularity as a recreational area is enhanced by a nearby ski resort.

Climate

Owing to its high altitude, Hawley Lake has a humid continental climate ( Köppen Dsb) and stands as one of the coldest and wettest places in Arizona. Lake-effect snow gives it much heavier snowfall than nearby towns like Alpine and in March 1973 snowfall was as high as 105 inches (2.7 m). Rainfall from July to September is also high, though not exceptional compared to many parts of southeastern Arizona.
