Granite Basin Lake is located about 15 minutes from Prescott, in North Central Arizona. Located in the Prescott National Forest, it is adjacent to the Granite Mountain Wilderness Area. Construction began on the dam in 1937 by the Civilian Conservation Corps and was completed in 1939.

The Raft, a segment of the movie Creepshow 2, was filmed here.
