San Carlos Lake
San Carlos is one of eight lakes with desert surroundings created by damming rivers in the hills around Phoenix, and like the others it has quite a dramatic setting. Deep blue waters are framed by gaunt, rocky, cactus-speckled mountains – in this case, the foothills of the Gila, Mescal and Santa Teresa ranges.
San Carlos Lake lies within the 3,000-square-mile San Carlos Apache Indian Reservation, the second largest in the state (after the Navajo), and is subject to tribal regulations – a permit is required for all hiking, fishing, camping and off-highway driving.
The lake is close to US 70, a main route between Phoenix and Lordsburg, New Mexico, and is reached by IR 3 which loops around the south side, over the dam then north toward the capital town of San Carlos.
