We often spend the evening up at Bartlett lake and have a family BBQ and the kids swim in the clear lake. Very refreshing in Arizona, not what you expect to find in a desert !

This is a nice lake that recently opened up a restaurant with really good food and good drinks. I wish the restaurant was open for breakfast, but maybe when it gets more popular. The marina is nice and quiet. Everyone that stays at the marina...More

Well, it's one of the places most Phoenicians don't go to. Mostly because they don't know it, everybody goes to lake Pleasant, which is usually crowded. Bartlett is more quiet, just a few boaters and some campers, but that's it. You can get a Tonto...More

Small lake offers fishing and water sports, like skiing and jet skis. It is not too far from the metro Phoenix. Great destination for a motorcycle ride.

Visitors: On the weekend this place is not very busy, maybe by noon there were 15 total families all around rattlesnake cove. But during the week we arrived for secluded fishing without the kids, and we were alone up until 11. It was scenic and...More
