Our Favorite Spot

We love camping here, its so close to home and it's dispersed! We usually camp right on the water. It can get really packed but we have never had bad neighbors. Seems to be kept pretty clean and there are restrooms.

Bartlet Flats was awesome

This was the first time we had been there and it was a great csmpsite. We were able to camp right by the water, and there was plenty of room. It was great having a camping place so close to our house, and we will definitely be back.

Okay if you don't want to go too far out of town

This lake is easy to get to from town (phoenix). It can crowd up quickly. The only thing that irked me about our stay here is that as we were setting up our tent, and working on getting our spot staked for fishing a group of men came in and took the spot after we all discussed where each group intended to go. There was also a group of nighttime kayakers that talked so loudly on the lake that you could hear them from one end of the lake to the other while everyone was trying to peacefully enjoy some night fishing.

SC Cove @ Barlett Lake

If your big into swimming/floating / boating & kayaks and jet skis this the the place to camp.. Back right up to the lake , pitch a tent and your set up for fun..
