Directions: There are two good ways to go- you had better google it.

From West Valencia road, where I live, or from the Airport, I take the 1-19 South toward Nogales.
Exit (left side- its tricky) on Exit 8- Grand Ave, I-19 Business route.

Follow for about 4 miles until signs for Patagonia Lake and AZ 82.

Follow 82 for about 10 miles.  Follow signs to Patagonia Lake State Park.  If you hit the Town of Patagonia, you have gone 5 miles too far. :)

Enjoy the drive! It's really scenic.
