LAKE PLEASANT - Memorial Day Updates


Lake Pleasant's high water elevation leaves almost NO SHORELINE to park or recreate on, limiting how many visitors can safely visit the park without damaging the land or visitor experience. Here's what to expect:

  • POSSIBLE PARK CLOSURES: For park visitor safety and natural resource protection, the park may likely close on either Saturday, Sunday, or Monday for up to six hours.
    • When the park closes, it will not reopen until 4 pm.
    • If you leave the park, and it is closed, you will not be allowed back in.
  • BOAT PARKING: With water levels continuing to rise, staff are expecting water to cover the lower parking lot at the concrete spillway. The lake will have parking spaces available at the 10-Lane (main and east parking lot) and the 4-lane (space limited), until filled. Please use Pleasant Harbor Marina (87th Ave., east of Lake Pleasant) as an alternate entrance.
  • CAMPSITES: All campsites have been reserved and there are no vacancies.

  • SHORELINE CAMPING: The park does not offer shoreline camping.

  • CAMPFIRES: The park is under a fire ban. No campfires, fire pits, and charcoal grills allowed.

  • PARK HOURS: The park hours are 5 am to 9 pm.

  • WATER LEVELS: https://www.cap-az.com/water/cap-system/water-operations/lake-pleasant/

  • PARK UPDATES: This page will be updated throughout the holiday weekend to provide information on the status of the park. Plan accordingly and check this page regularly for current information and/or closure notices. Please do not call the park or send messages via social media to see if it is open or closed.
