We stayed in the campground for a long weekend. When we first got there it was really full, but once most people checked out on Sunday, it was pretty peaceful . If you want quiet then do weekdays as the weekend was filled with dogs barking and you could hear your neighbors talking. Their campground spots are pretty close to each other but you do get some decent space behind you. We used their showers daily. They were not very clean and the water was very hot. It was on a timer that lasted about 20 seconds each push . The toilet area was kind of dirty too. You could tell nobody cleaned the bathrooms. There were many hiking trails in the area. We also drove to the Marina. There wasn’t much to do over there. Make sure to bring all the food and drinks you’re going to need as the closest store was about 30 minutes away.

I went out to Lake Pleasant early one morning and hiked around the Desert Tortoise trailhead. It was beautiful, I saw several burros and really enjoyed the scenic views. My dog also enjoyed running into the lake to cool off! The lake is very large and offers several types of amenities. I'd recommend downloading the app, Avem, to help discover and find the amenities that interest you.

We really enjoyed our drive around the lake- seeing the water, cactus and wild burros. It's a lovely park with much to see and enjoy. The visitor center (Discovery Center) provides some good information background to the area in general and to the lake in particular. It was a cloudy day, but we were lucky to get bits of sun here and there, and we loved the views. We particularly like seeing the wild burros around the entrance, and we heard there are several hundred burros aroound the park. Our one disappointment was the marina restaurant was closed for 2 weeks for cleaning. Hope we can return when it's open and we have more time to spend around the park.

For the price of a RV site at $32 a night, water and elec, you would think the campground would have more then one men's toilet seat for 30 camp sites. Most of the campsites 133-158 are totally un level placings RV's in a dangerous position while in use. The county should spend a little money to improve the sites. Also even if you only plan to use personnal non-motorize watercraft 1 or 2 times, you are charged daily regardless.

We went up to Lake Pleasant to have a picnic and to see the wild flowers around the lake area. Great time pleasant weather and although there were a boats on the lake it wasn't badly crowded. Take the back road toward Castle Hot Spings and after it turns to dirt go until you can find a place to stop and park. Hike back into the area using the burro trails. We came across the wild burros and some great spreads of flowers.

Went hiking along the Wild Burro Trail, mostly easy, nice lake views, saw jumping fish along the shoreline. Along the hillside we watch three wild burros wandering, pretty cool. Also came across a snake about 15 inches from my foot. Back and forth about 4 miler. Spring desert blossoms, few people, Stop at the floating bar restaurant at the marina, fun active place for recooperation time. Less than one hour from Scottsdale lots of boating action and rentals

Just walked out with my husband who was excited to try a different restaurant down by the lake. 30-40 minute wait to get seated on the water and was seated for about 15 minutes. No waitress. No waters. No order taken. Nothing. Hands down the WORST service I’ve ever received at a restaurant in my life.

Drove through the lake site during our stay in Scottsdale. We're from New England and spend A LOT of time in our boat so I figured we'd take a ride up to this lake and check it out. The camp site is a series of parking lots with literally hundreds of RV's (small and large). I will say that the view of the lake is nice but when I think of camping, this is not what I imagine. Its just a bunch of parking lots. No trees, no grass etc.

We've been taking a hike a week this month and Lake Pleasant is the best one so far. There is an entry fee. There are multiple trails that are challenging or leisurely but most have water views, look out points and varied walk textures. There are signs along the trails to help you decide which way to go and there are benches at key areas.

I read a review that said “time to ban dogs” but in reality I think it should have said “time to ban people.” I was excited to go here bc I am from a state that has lots of lakes, but as soon as I got up close, highly disappointing. This lake is disgusting. Trash everywhere. I think I even saw a rug at one point. I wouldn’t even let my dog swim here. The fact that you pay to go here and the lack of care coming from the state to actually clean the shore is beyond me.
