Just forty-five minutes from downtown Phoenix, Pleasant Harbor, located on the southeastern shores of Lake Pleasant, serves as a one-stop recreation spot for lakeside fun.  Pleasant Harbor is open 365 days a year and operates 24 hours a day.

Do you want to rent a boat, show-off on water skis, wake board or lake surf? Jet Ski, kayak, paddle board or sail?  Did we mention, Pleasant Harbor is home to the World’s Largest Floating Waterslide — H2Whoa!? Another popular activity for all ages at Pleasant Harbor includes a trip aboard The Phoenix, a 150-person boat cruise, departing throughout the week, as well hosting sunset and dinner cruise opportunities. These activities and much more are all available at Pleasant Harbor and, for most Phoenicians, the closest spot to enjoy lakeside fun.

After a day full of lake activities, enjoy a meal and drinks at Dillon’s Bayou. This lakeside restaurant is open for lunch and dinner during the week and breakfast, lunch and dinner on the weekends.  And, at the end of the day, there’s no reason to drive back home — Pleasant Harbor RV resort offers 254 sites with full hookups and unlimited dry camping, with amazing views of Lake Pleasant. Summer weekends fill up fast, so be sure to call ahead for camping reservations.

“We pretty much have it all,” said Glen Vortherms, General Manager of Maricopa Water District (MWD), owner and operator of Pleasant Harbor.  “With our close proximity to Phoenix, and seven-day-a-week public access, we are one of the hidden gems of the Valley.”

From the Phoenix area, Pleasant Harbor is the closest destination and entrance to Lake Pleasant, conveniently located off Carefree Highway and 87th Avenue (8708 W. Harbor Boulevard, Peoria, AZ 85383).  Visitors exiting I-17, travel west on Carefree Highway, or take North 99th Avenue/North Lake Pleasant Parkway from Bell Road to Carefree Highway and then west to 87th Avenue and then onto Harbor Boulevard.  Pleasant Harbor admission fee is $7.00 per vehicle.
