Saguaro Lake Boating (ARIZONA)
Saguaro Lake, created by the Stewart Mountain Dam, is located just 40 miles northeast of downtown Phoenix and even closer to Scottsdale and Mesa, suburbs of Phoenix. Saguaro Lake is named for the majestic Saguaro Cactus that speckles the surrounding desert landscape. Saguaro Lake has more than 22 miles of shoreline and when full is about 118 feet deep creating a great environment for power boating rentals, water skiing tours, sailing, jet skiing rentals, wakeboard lessons, wake surf lessons, wake skating instruction, kayaking, fishing and camping. The lake is divided into upper and lower portions and connected by narrow waterways where boaters are required to reduce their speeds to 15 miles per hour while they traverse between the two lake sections.
Saguaro Lake is the fourth reservoir on the Salt River formed by the Stewart Mountain Dam in the state of Arizona.
