As the Salt River winds down to the Valley of the Sun, it has carved deep and sometimes spectacular canyons. In the narrow passage between the Mazatzal and Superstition mountains, the canyon has been dammed to create four deep reservoirs that feed the mighty thirst of Phoenix. Read running upriver, their names form the mnemonic SCAR: Saguaro, Canyon, Apache, and Roosevelt. On Canyon Lake you’ll find the unusual camping opportunity of three nicely developed sites with facilities— and no road access at all. Transfer your car camping gear to something that floats a little better and enjoy a night at The Point.
