Is This the Best Lake in Arizona?

One of Arizona's best lakes for fishing, boating, swimming, and adventure! Apache Lake in Roosevelt, AZ is about 2 hour drive from Phoenix.

We had a fun weekend at Apache Lake Marina and Resort, enjoying the beautiful views and water activities on Apache Lake. Yes, it’s a bit of an adventure to get here, but if you want fewer crowds and a fairly full lake option, this is it!

More details can be found on our website, or visit the resort website at
