The Mason Dam Boat Launch is located on the east end of Phillips Lake off the Elkhorn Drive Scenic Byway (also known as Highway 7). Surrounded by an open ponderosa pine forest, the site is popular in the summer for fishing and boating, and in the winter for ice fishing. The boat launch parking area is also used as the eastern trailhead for the North Phillips Lake Shoreline Trail #1608.
