REGIONAL BOATING

Arizona has over 150,000 registered boats. Besides the few small natural lakes in the areas above 6000 feet elevation, several man-made lakes serve as the primary recreational boating sites. Many of the larger lakes are also served by one or more marinas. Several members of the Phoenix Sail and Power Squadron also operate sail and power boats out of yacht clubs and marinas in Southern California.
