Probably not. Jacob Lake is really just a little pond created by a sinkhole which pretty much dries up by the end of summer.
Occasionally visitors want to know where they can go swimming while visiting the Kaibab Plateau. You’d think driving hours through a desert to get here they may have gotten a clue about the lack of “swimming holes.” Yet they also drive through a diverse forest before getting to the canyon and may think there are hidden lakes and streams. Plus encounter a junction to turn south into the forest and park at Jacob Lake which consists of an Inn with restaurant and gift shop (which by the way bakes great cookies and makes delicious milk shakes), two campgrounds and a Forest Service information center.
But the horses like it for a watering hole.
And there’s a historic Ranger Station to explore. The Jacob Lake Ranger Station was built by the Forest Service in 1910.
This two-room cabin without electricity or plumbing served as both office and living quarters.
It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1987.
Almost comfortable enough to move right in.
