Apache Trail Scenic Drive

Canyon Lake
Apache Trail Scenic Drive

Approaching Canyon Lake there is an official scenic view stop, and at Canyon Lake there is a restaurant, store, marina, campground, and the Dolly Steamboat 90-minute narrated boat trip.

Canyon Lake is one of three man-made reservoir lakes that were formed on the Salt River south of Roosevelt Dam.

Tip #3
Canyon Lake is about 15 miles from where AZ 88, the Apache Trail, begins. The road is winding, but fully paved. Drive slow, and for heaven's sake, don't drink before driving this road. Courtesy and care are key. There will be slow moving vehicles and people stopped on the road. Please leave all your aggressive tendencies home. Don't leave your camera at home.
