General Plan Survey #2


Pinetop-Lakeside is a community located in the scenic White Mountains of Arizona. Pinetop-Lakeside, at an elevation of 7,200 feet, is known for its extensive tourism and recreational activities, proximity to the world's largest stand of ponderosa pine, and for an outstanding quality of life.

Pinetop-Lakeside is surrounded by the natural beauty of the White Mountains, the Apache/Sitgreaves National Forest and the White Mountain Apache Indian Reservation. Hiking, biking, horseback riding, hunting and fishing are popular recreational activities. Camping and picnic facilities are provided throughout the area. The White Mountain Trail system provides over 180 miles of developed multi-use trails.Founded in the early 1880's by Mormon pioneers, Lakeside derived its name from the area's lakes, and Pinetop derived its name from the nickname of a saloon keeper who served the Fort Apache soldiers. The two communities of Pinetop and Lakeside incorporated as one town in 1984.

Pinetop-Lakeside is noted for its golf courses and Woodland Lake Park with its excellent recreational facilities. Cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, sledding, and ice fishing can be enjoyed during the winter. So come and celebrate the seasons in Pinetop-Lakeside!
