Woods Canyon Lake is a fishing lake near Payson, Arizona located near the Mogollon Rim. The lake has a hike that loops around it, and several other hikes nearby to look at the particularly scenic views just off of nearby Rim Road.

Access to the lake is restricted in the winter due to snowy conditions on the road, and reopens in the spring as the snow melts.
