Determining if a Phoenix lake community allows boating

One of the most frequently asked questions I recieve is “Does this lake community allow boating?”  The second most frequent question is “How big is the lake?”  We’re going to answer both of these questions.  Previously, I’ve attempted to make a list of lakes where boating, kayaking, and canoeing are permitted and which lakes are larger and more conducive to boating.     I’m going to share some tools with you so that you can answer these questions.

Tools to determine if a lake is boat friendly and measuring lake size

The following video shows a couple of features of the Arizona Regional MLS system that includes the ability to zoom in and determine if boats are allowed on a specific lake, if a property has a boat dock, and measure the size of a lake.

If you’d like to receive waterfront listings in order to use these features, click on Send Me Waterfront Listings.
