One of the most scenic water recreation areas in the “Valley of the Sun,” this northwest Valley park is a recreationist’s dream. The park offers many activities, such as camping, boating, fishing, swimming, hiking, picnicking, and wildlife viewing. Hikers can enjoy the scenic 1.5-mile Roadrunner Trail that overlooks the lake, or easier half-mile Visitor Center Trail with interpretive signage. There are 148 sites for RV and tent camping, day use picnic areas and two boat launching ramps for lake access. Lake Pleasant Regional Park is open 24 hours, 365 days a year.
