One of the most scenic water recreation areas in the “Valley of the Sun,” this northwest Valley park is a recreationist’s dream. The 23,362 acre park offers activities like camping, boating, fishing, swimming, hiking, picnicking, and wildlife viewing.
Lake Pleasant Regional Park can be a wonderful place to dip your toes in the water! During the warmer months, park visitors can be found floating tubes and rafts around Fireman's Cove, Coles Bay, and Humbug Cove. It can also be a favorite location for competitive swimmers due to the calm waterways.
