Imagine a small lake with geese, ducks, and coots.  Heron wade in the shallows spearing small fish and frogs.  Osprey dive into the water catching tonight’s fish dinner.  It doesn’t sound like Arizona, does it?  Reed-lined JD Dam Lake seems out of place amid the tall pines of the Kaibab National Forest.  The lake has a parking lot and vault toilet for anglers and surprised visitors.

The road is easy, graded dirt with gravel mixed in.  While camping isn’t allowed at the lake, there are four small campsites nearby.
