Patagonia Lake is a small lake formed by the damming of Sonoita Creek. A beautiful lake, it meanders over about 3 or 4 hundred acres. It is located 12 miles southwest of the town of Patagonia. Day use fee is $10, a little steep as state parks go, but it is what it is. Little store in the park has fishing license for sale. One day, out of state, is around $20. Fishing was slow, but many coves and canyons are said to hold nice bass, though yours truly didn't hook into any. I didn't use any restroom facilities, so no comment there. I was there during the week, so crowds were small. I launched my kayak at the marina, a concrete boat ramp, hard on kayak hulls. My suggestion for this lake is that they install a kayak launch. What is that? It is a gently sloping earthen ramp from which a kayak can slide easily into the water without scratching the hull. No such area exists at this lake, so kayakers, enter at your boat's peril. Further observances: I cannot, nor ever shall understand city folks who come to a tranquil lake in the middle of a wilderness with the intention of experiencing the beauty of said wilderness, yet proceed to pollute that same setting with loud music from their boat speakers. Oh, yes, that happened, as it does everywhere. What is going on with these people?
