Boating on Phoenix Residential Lakes
A common question I receive about waterfront property is,”Can I boat on the lake?” Many waterfront owners want to use a pontoon boat or a kayak and enjoy boating from a dock in their backyard in the desert! Some may not. A previous post discussed how to determine if a lake allows boating. Now let’s take it a step further and list the best residential lakes in Phoenix for boating.
What is the criteria for best lake community boating?
Start with a very simple question after looking at an aerial view of the community, “Do other waterfront home owners have docks & boats?” No docks or boats would make me wonder. If every other backyard has a dock/boat at the water’s edge, that would be a strong endorsement of the lake for happy boaters.
After that it starts to get subjective but other factors would be open areas and not just narrow waterways. Add to that the continuous length that a boater could travel before turning around.
