Plan your great escape
Dogtown Lake Campground

Dogtown Lake is the largest body of water in the area. Before the lake was formed, the area was a "prairie dog town," which is now submerged below the lake's surface - thus the apropos name. Camping is adjacent to Dogtown Lake among Ponderosa pines and a few Gamble oaks. Some sites overlook the lake. Licensed ATVs may be used only to enter and exit the campground. Dogtown Lake is 80 acres and well suited for the solitude of canoeing. Only electric boat motors allowed. If you fish, rainbow and brown trout are stocked in the lake. Nearby hiking trails include the Ponderosa Nature Trail, Davenport Hill Trail and Dogtown Lake Trail.

Brewed for Grand Canyon lovers ...
Owners of The Grand Canyon Brewery, located in the heart of downtown Williams, have carved a large niche for themselves since opening in August of 2007. While originally serving their locally-made beer in the Williams area, the brewery now distributes all over the state, including to the Grand Canyon, Flagstaff, Prescott and a number of other venues. They currently have over 600 points of distribution, including distribution aboard the Grand Canyon Railway. Their product, however, is still brewed, bottled and canned in Williams.

A gunfight a day doesn't keep the visitors away
The crowd gathers under the setting sun, breathless with anticipation. There are people from all walks of life, all nationalities and from many different countries, but they are all watching the same thing. Standing there, hemmed in by world travelers, Williams residents and a handful of curious children, are a number of burly cowboys in their boots and hats, leather and spurs. Their guns are drawn. They yell and shout and someone gets shot. Sometimes they even dance.
