Phoenix area lakes


 Many people are surprised to hear that the Phoenix area actually has many choices for watersports.  You might think, Phoenix is in the middle of the desert, how can you go boating, waterskiing or jetskiing.  Well, like many other parts of the country, the rivers that run through the state have dams and that means that we have large recreational lakes. 


No matter where you live in the Phoenix area, you can get to a lake within an hour.  For most valley residents, that can be less than half an hour.   On the west side of town you will find Lake Pleasant, on the Agua Fria River, located in Peoria


Saguaro Lake and Canyon Lake are located east of Scottsdale and North of Mesa and accessible within a 20 minute drive for both. 

Apache Lake and Roosevelt Lake are further NE of Mesa.  All four are located on the Salt River


Bartlett and Horseshoe lake are located northeast of Scottsdale on the Verde River.  All of these lake provide fantastic natural beauty, relaxation and all kinds of water sports. Horseshoe is a favorite for fishing and does not allow other watersports motorcraft.
