Enjoy Saguaro Lake Arizona with wakeboard boats - water ski boat rentals, and jet ski rentals. Saguaro Lake is only 41 miles from downtown Phoenix, this lake was part of the Salt River. Construction of Stewart Mountain Dam created Saguaro Lake which is very long, and allows boat tours, and water sport lessons. Saguaro del Norte Recreation site is near the dam and includes the Saguaro Lake Marina, first aid station, picnic tables, restrooms, eatery, and boat ramps.
Another marina is Butcher Jones Beach, which can be reached by a road a few miles north of Saguaro del Norte, features swimming, picnic and restroom facilities. Bagley Flat Campground is about four miles from the dam but is accessible only by boat which makes it a nice getaway. It is open all year, to get there, travel up a narrow cliff-bordered portion of the lake. The campground is in a scenic and peaceful area and has bathroom facilities where you can enjoy wakeboarding, water skiing, tubing, wakesurfing, kneeboarding, wake skating, stand up paddle boarding, camping, and fishing.
