The Boating Facilities Section in the Development Branch administers three grant programs to assist with boating in Arizona: Boating Access, Boating Infrastructure, and Clean Vessel Act. Congress allocates annual funds to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to support these programs that are largely restricted to on-the-ground activities, and enhance boating access and facilities for the recreational boater and fisherman on Arizona waterways.
Vehicular access to the Agua Fria arm of Lake Pleasant via Table Mesa Road is currently closed for the season. The entire area remains open daily for walk-in access. Additional improvements to the Agua Fria boat ramp and associated facilities are anticipated to continue over the next several months.
Arivaca Lake Boat Ramp Renovation
Starting March 3, 2014, the boat ramp at Arivaca Lake will be closed to vehicular access due to construction. This project is being undertaken by the Boating Facilities Program of the Arizona Game and Fish Department. The work is anticipated to last throughout March, with the newly renovated facility being re-opened in early April. A lack of rainfall in the area has resulted in very low water levels, and the lake is currently inaccessible for the launching of trailered boats. The existing restroom and parking area will remain open to the public throughout the construction period. The lake shore will remain open to pedestrian access on unimproved trails, however no vehicular access to the lake shore will be available until the construction project is complete. If you have any questions, please contact Ron Christofferson, Boating Facilities Program Manager, at (623) 236-7481.
