Saguaro Lake was formed by the Stewart Mountain Dam, which was built between 1928-30. The dam was named after a ranch that used to be located nearby known as, the Old Stewart Ranch. Saguaro Lake is located 41 miles northeast from Phoenix. Saguaro Lake is a spectacular site for boating, fishing, water skiing, hiking, camping, and all other forms of outdoor recreation. But camping is accessible by boat only. It has a swimming area and two boating ramps. Saguaro Lake has clean, clear water, and good fishing. A Google Earth Map search marks Saguaro Lake at the center of the Stewart Mountain Dam at 33o 33' 59.50" N 111o 32' 10.44" W.

Saguaro Lake is one of the four lakes that were formed by the damming of the Salt River for the Salt River Project; which supplies water to the "Vally of the Sun" or Phoenix Area. It is surrounded by beautiful scenery since it is within the Tonto National Forest.
