Palo Verde Boat Ramp At Canyon Lake Closing For Improvements
February 1, 2018
CANYON LAKE, Ariz. — Boaters and other outdoor recreationists are advised that the Palo Verde Boat Ramp at Canyon Lake will temporarily close from March 1 through March 17 for a facility improvement project. Arizona Game and Fish has been working with the Tonto National Forest to maintain the pavement in and around the ramp, and this project will involve milling, crack-sealing, seal-coating and other services as necessary.
During the work, the area from the main highway down to the ramp will be closed to the public. Signage will direct people to the Laguna Boat Ramp as an alternate access point.
Canyon Lake is located about 15 miles northeast of Apache Junction on the Apache Trail road.
Funding for the project comes from both Tonto Pass user fees and a federal Boating Access Grant awarded to the Arizona Game and Fish Department to benefit boaters and anglers. The program, part of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Sport Fish Restoration Program, provides grant funds to the states for projects that develop new public access facilities or renovate or improve existing facilities.
