Phoenix Area Boating Lakes

Mention Phoenix and Scottsdale and most visitors conjure-up visions of barren, dry desert. Actually there are four scenic lakes in the area within close driving distance. Two are set along the path of the Salt River at the eastern edges of Greater Phoenix. Lake Pleasant is located northwest of Phoenix and is the largest of the Phoenix lakes, Bartlett Lake is located northeast of Scottsdale near Carefree, Arizona.

Each of these lakes feature unique beauty. Some with high, majestic towering canyon walls. Expansive sky-blue waters, fishing, boating, jet-skiing, water-skiing and water recreation. You can expect all of amenities from restaurants, boat rentals, boat repair services and general stores for camping and fishing supplies.


Tempe Town Lake is located at the border between Phoenix, Tempe and Scottsdale. This is a large urban lake wrapped in jogging tracks. Many events are held on its grassy areas during the year. Motorized boats are not permitted.
