After receiving detailed operating instructions, up to eight boaters pile into a well-appointed 20-foot pontoon boat, replete with AM/FM stereos, all necessary safety gear, and an imaginary first mate. Ski boats host a maximum of six to eight passengers, depending on model, and cruise the lake’s twinkling waters with power-assisted steering while blasting tunes from a CD player. Dogs are permitted on certain vessels, allowing beloved pets to accompany their masters and earn a full set of four sea legs.
In the shadow of the mountains of Tonto National Forest, Bartlett Lake watercrafts skid across 2,815 acres of the lake's pristine waters. The marina abounds with recreational facilities—its fleet of professional jet skis, pontoons, and ski boats sit parked along docks of grills, a general store, and a covered, floating patio. A 45-foot yacht towers over the rest of the rental boats, furnishing lively parties of up to 25 people with a slide, bar, and restroom, while a large houseboat floats along the lake peacefully—an impressive vessel complete with private rooms, a deck, and kitchen. As visitors navigate the lake or forage the surrounding area's desert terrain trails, they have the opportunity to admire indigenous plants and abundant wildlife.
