Arizona map, so many versions, so
little space. Shown below are several versions of the basic Arizona map for your information and reference.
For those not familiar with Arizona, I'll point out a few
Less than 10% of Arizona's land is
privately owned. Yes, various government agencies and Indian tribes own
almost all the land. National Forests, the several National Parks
and Monuments are a major piece, as are the BLM-managed lands.
This Arizona map with county outlines
illustrates that we have a relatively small number of large counties. A couple of our
counties are larger than some states.
The northwestern part of the state is somewhat isolated by
geographic features, primarily by the Grand Canyon and the Colorado River on the
east and south, and by Lake Mead to the west.
This Arizona map
shows that the northeastern portion of the state is devoted to the
Other tribal lands are scattered across
Arizona. Several Apache reservations are located in central Arizona.
Canyon is home to the Havasupai and Hualapai peoples.

Our northwestern neighbor is the state of Nevada. Lake Mead
and nearby Las Vegas are popular recreation sites. It's safe to say that each
has it's own attraction.
The Arizona map below shows a ragged western
border defined by the Colorado River. Our western neighbor is the state of California. I'm sure you've
heard of California.
Our southern neighbor is the Republic of Mexico. Mexico's
culture heavily flavors Arizona's culture.
Our eastern neighbor is the State of New Mexico. The Ponderosa
Pine forest that gives our South of Flagstaff country it's appeal, extends all
the way into western New Mexico.
Our northern neighbor is the state of Utah. We share Lake
Powell with Utah. Lake Powell was formed by constructing a dam in Glen
Canyon, impounding lake water in a series of sandstone canyons. It's beautiful
scenery, and valuable water in our arid Southwest.
The basic Arizona map doesn't indicate that we have
a northeastern neighbor, but we do. Colorado meets Arizona, Utah, and New
Mexico, as shown on this Four Corners regional map. This location is known as Four Corners, and it's the only place in
the US where four states meet.
