Prescott Lakes Have Much To Offer

Ceremonial Pads at Watson and Goldwater Lakes For many years, some engaged couples have chosen to hold their wedding ceremonies and receptions at one of Prescott's lakes. To facilitate these and other ceremonies and various celebrations, the City has built two ceremonial pads, at Goldwater and Watson Lakes.

In 2014, the first ceremonial pad (capacity 100) was built at Goldwater Lake0. Located in Prescott National Forest, this facility sits between two ramadas, Lakeview and Pinetop (capacity 100 each), which are ideal for receptions. All three of these facilities are available for rent independently.

A new and larger ceremonial pad was built at Watson Lake in 2018 . With stunning views of Watson Lake and the Dells, this area has been a favorite spot for many weddings. It is a short distance from Watson Lake's Upper Ramada . Both have a capacity of 150. Due to proximity, these two facilities cannot be rented individually.
