Right on Ponderosa .....I also see Sonoita Creek recreational area is out there too. I'm guessing about 45 min south of Tucson? I also was looking at the mountain ranges out there on a map so how are the Santa Ritas for outdoor recreation. Thanks.......

If you go there via I-10, a few miles before you get to Patagonia is a turn to the left that takes you to Parker Canyon Lake. It's one of my favorite spots. Its a 10hp max lake, but very pretty. There's lots of national forest area around Parker Canyon to enjoy. Another spot way up in the mountains is Riggs Flat Lake. It's about 9000 feet up in the Pinaleno Mountains near Safford. Very tiny but totally alpine. I've run into snow up there in July.

Patagonia is pretty small and is a madhouse on weekends. But it is nice during the week. There is a state park there with decent campsites. I don't think Roosevelt is all that much further from Tucson than it is from parts of Phoenix, either, especially if you are in the Oro Valley area.
