Welcome To Saguaro Lake Marina

Saguaro Lake was formed by the Stewart Mountain Dam, which was completed in 1930. It was the last of the reservoirs to be built on the Salt River. 

The lake is named for the Saguaro Cactus, which stand majestically in the surrounding desert landscape. Saguaro Lake has more than 22 miles of shoreline, creating a great environment for boating, kayaking, sailing, skiing, jet skiing, fishing and camping. 

The Saguaro del Norte Recreation site is near the dam and includes Saguaro Lake Marina, which includes a restaurant and boat concession, a Maricopa County Sheriff's aid station, picnic tables, restrooms and boat ramps. Butcher Jones Beach, which can be reached by a road a few miles north of Saguaro del Norte, features swimming, picnic and restroom facilities.

Saguaro Lake is located within the Tonto National Forest just 20 minutes from Mesa, Arizona. Click here for directions and maps of Saguaro Lake and the area. 

There is so much to do at Saguaro Lake! Visit Precision Marine and rent a runabout, fishing or pontoon boat, or take a relaxing Desert Belle tour boat ride around the lake, then eat at the yummy ShipRock Restaurant.

Saguaro Lake is great fun for everyone!
