Outdoor Adventures Near Phoenix

No reviews, be the first!

When people think of Arizona, most of the images that come to mind are full of desert sand, cacti, and open spaces; while there are some highly photographic landscapes of this sort (especially during sunrise/sunset), Arizona also has a plethora of lakes, which means there are countless boating and fishing opportunities all over the state.

Lakes near Phoenix include Apache Lake (by the Apache Trail in Superstition Wilderness, with coves, painted canyon walls and largemouth bass-fishing); Canyon Lake (smaller but more scenic, with high walls that make many spots accessible only by boat, or better yet, Jet-Ski); Roosevelt Lake (created in 1911 because of the Roosevelt Dam) was the largest man-made lake in the world and resulted in much of the surrounding area becoming fertile; and Saguaro Lake (named for the Saguaro Cactus that dots the landscape).
