The place to meet friends after the pavement ends

Welcome to Apache Lake Marina and Resort, Central Arizona’s most complete lake facility. Dubbed the “hidden gem of the Salt River Lakes”, Apache Lake provides its visitors with unsurpassed views and unrivaled seclusion. Surrounded by the Superstition Wilderness and the Three Bar Wildlife Area, Apache Lake is 17 miles long and a spectacular site for boating, fishing, water sports, hiking, camping, and all forms of outdoor recreation. Apache Lake Marina and Resort is accessible only by driving the historic Apache Trail (or State Route 88), which has been named one of the most scenic drives in Arizona.

Not the traditional lake

Unlike lakes surrounding the Phoenix Metropolitan area, Apache Lake’s unique location creates an uncrowded and pristine atmosphere for water and outdoor enthusiasts. Break the mold of having to arrive at sunrise to avoid launch ramp lines or before the lake reaches capacity; Apache Lake is never closed due to capacity constraints. Enjoy empty coves, glassy water, and hidden beaches framed by native saguaros and awe-inspiring cliffs.
