Located 51 miles East of Phoenix, this lake is popular with swimmers and boaters. Follow Highway 88 from Apache Junction for 15 fully paved miles to the lake, as the winding road and sharp curves traverse colorful desert scenery. Take a cruise on the Dolly Steamboat when you arrive. There are three recreation sites available including Acacia Picnic Site, Palo Verde Recreation Site and the Boulder Creek Recreation Site.
