Patagonia Lake is two and a half miles long and 250 surface acres. The popular lake supports for a variety of recreational activities, including water skiing, fishing, camping, picnicking, and hiking.

Created by the damming of Sonoita Creek, the state stocks the lake with bass, crappie, bluegill, and catfish. They stock it with rainbow trout during the winter. For anglers' sake, the state designates half of the lake as a no wake area. For wheelchair access, the park provides a level-fishing pad. Because the lake attracts a multitude of water lovers during summer months, the park prohibits water skiing and jet skiing on weekends from May through September.

Camping ranges from undeveloped spots to sites with water and electric hookups. Park conveniences include picnic ramadas, a swimming beach, and a marina store with boat rentals. Entry to the park is from State Route 82 between Patagonia and Nogales.
