Fain lake has been closed due to a major restoration project.  The park plans to re-open for Memorial weekend.  There was a removal of about 13,000 cubic yards of sediment that had washed down from Lynx Creek. The cleaning out is intended to help fish habitat in the lake.

Town officials say they're not sure if or when the Arizona Department of Game and Fish would restock the lake. The state removed fish from the lake in advance of the dredging project and stocked the fish in nearby lakes.

Fain lake has a picnic area and restrooms available. 

Fain Park is open year-round. No fees are charged.

There are sidewalks, accessible restrooms, and accessible fishing areas.

No alcohol is permitted at the park at any time. Pets must be leashed and cleaned up after. A valid AZ fishing license with a trout stamp is required.

Directions: To reach Fain Park from Prescott, travel west on State Route 69 toward Prescott Valley. Turn left (south) at the stoplight on Glassford Hill road. Turn right (west) on 2nd Street and go past the ADOT yard. Turn left (south) on 4th Street where there is a sign. 4th Street ends at Fain Park.

Reservations are not needed or accepted to use Fain Park. Picnic ramadas can be reserved.

Fain park is located in Prescott Valley, a scenic 100-acre park that was once the home of gold prospectors on Lynx Creek. Fain Park features the Barlow-Massick "Castle on the Creek". Fain Park was a 100-acre gift to the town of Prescott Valley. There is an active 50-acre recreation site, including trails, picnic areas, ramadas. The park also offers limited gold panning, and a still-developing historical site in addition to the Fitzmaurice historic ruins. Fain Park also offers a mini-history lesson with a refurbished stamp mill and historical artifacts with interpretive signs. Fain Lake is stocked by the Arizona Game and Fish with rainbow trout. The town of Prescott Valley has not yet developed the other 50 acres that includes the historic townsite of Massicks. Neither the Castle nor the Fitzmaurice ruins are open to the public.

Living in Buckeye, going to Prescott and Prescott Valley is one of our great pleasures especially during the summer.  Thanks for the tip on Fain Lake, we've never been there but we will check it out next trip up.  Which may be real soon since it's 113 down here today.
