nothing like coming over a curvy drive and come upon this beautiful water--it is breathtaking-every part of the drive is more gorgeous than round the bend

South of Tortilla Flats - Apache Lake is one of four reservoirs built along the Salt River - lots of camping areas - several boating ramps - very boat friendly area ! Worth a stop if your passing through !

If you take the Historic Apache Trail scenic drive along route 88 from Apache Junction to the Teddy Roosevelt Dam, you will see this lake along the way. The views are quite stunning and well worth your time to see.

The drive out there was a bit white-knuckled as the one-lane dirt road is very twisty and turny. In my opinion, the drive on that road should be experienced. Beautiful scenery. Mountains and vistas are breathtaking!

Great lake. Nice for a swim in a hot summer day. The drive is rough but is totally worth it. Good fishing also.

Been going to this lake for 20 years now and it's beauty is beyond measure! The water, the scenery, the wildlife and the history along with the "lake" people make this place so awesome!
