2. Vail Lake Resort
Vail Lake used to be a place of historical importance in the days of old when it was used as a stopover on the Butterfield Overland Stage Coach Line. The lake was actually created in the 1940s from the Vail Lake Dam and now spans over 1,000 acres of water. The lake is well known as a place to fish for bass and you can also camp here if you want to stay for more than a day in the area. Other activities at the lake include mountain biking around the area as well as hiking one of the many trails.
