Lake Pleasant Regional Park is a large outdoors recreation area straddling the Maricopa and Yavapai county border northwest of Phoenix, Arizona.
On March 21, 2022, we stayed at Lake Pleasant for one night. It was a bit difficult to get into our spot since it was on a hill, but once we unhooked the car we had no trouble getting into our spot.
The view from our RV of the lake was absolutely breathtaking.
Lake Pleasant Regional Park offers 148 sites for RV and tent camping within the campgrounds.
- Desert Tortoise Campground
