Roosevelt Lake, AZ - Wet Winter Brings Rising Lake Levels

Here's what you need to know to plan a great Spring Break!

Roosevelt Lake Marina

SPRING INTO SUMMER - Higher water levels at Roosevelt Lake mean a stellar boating season ahead, just in time for having great fun on the water during Spring Break - and continuing into the summer. If you have not explored it in a while, this is the year to get back out to Roosevelt Lake, and begin a new tradition with your family and friends.

The start of boating season is almost here and you can expect water levels at Roosevelt Lake to be higher than they have been in years!

The past few months of winter brought more than expected rain and snowfall to the area around Roosevelt Lake, as well as to the higher elevations in northern Arizona. Salt River Project reports from late February indicate that Roosevelt Lake is nearly 60 percent full.

As the weather warms heading into Spring Break and boating season, snowmelt it expected to increase runoff into the lake with preliminary reports indicating the lake could surpass levels of more than 80 percent, which has not been seen in years. You can track the lake's water levels daily at:

Premier Marina And Village Amenities

With a great boating season on Roosevelt Lake ahead, and Spring Break right around the corner, it's time to start planning your boating season. Roosevelt Lake Marina is the premier destination on Roosevelt Lake, offering 260 covered and uncovered boat slips as well as secure lakeside enclosed or covered dry storage for boats and water toys as well as a convenient store with basic groceries and a bar where guests can purchase and grill their own hamburgers and hot dogs while enjoying a beverage.

Boaters always appreciate the marina's fuel and boat launch, which are both available 24-hours a day, 7 days a week.

Boaters who like to travel to lakes located throughout the Southwest, Roosevelt Lake Marina makes it easy to enjoy your time at Roosevelt Lake by offering guest slips that can be purchased for daily use. The marina also offers designated first-come, first-served courtesy slips near the fuel dock and marina bar.

However, if these courtesy slips are full, you will need to wait to park your boat until a courtesy slip becomes available. Planning ahead by reserving a guest slip eliminates wait time, so you can make the most of your every minute on the lake. For guest slip reservations, call 602-977-7170 or email:

Floating Hotel And Campground Accommodations

Staying the night just got more fun! Roosevelt Lake Marina recently added a Floating Hotel with two bedrooms, one bathroom, kitchen, living room and patio. The hotel accommodates up to 6 guests, making a family visit to Roosevelt Lake more fun than ever before. To book the floating hotel for Spring Break, or your summer vacation, call 602-977-7170.

For those who like to rough it, the campground at Roosevelt Lake Marina offers plenty of room to accommodate tents, campers and RVs on the water's edge. Keep in mind that accommodations on our campsite are handled on a first-come basis. Single car/truck camping is $6 per day, and a car/truck with trailer is $10 per day. Note: We do not accept Tonto Camping Passes.

And, since the campground is located close to the boat launch ramp, guests should bring their boats or jet skis for a weekend or week packed with lake fun. Of course, the marina also rents boats for those who don't own their own. Rental boat information is available at
