If you've never been to Bartlett Lake, you've missed out on one of the most scenic sites in the Phoenix area. Tucked into the foothills of the Mazatzal Mountains, Bartlett Lake is a wonderful recreation area in the middle of the dry desert. If you get a chance to join us for an event, be sure to bring your camera. There are plenty of incredible views around the lake.


Bartlett Lake is located in the Tonto National Forest east of Carefree, AZ.

To get to the event site:

From the Intersection of Pima Road and East Cave Creek Road:
  • Travel east on East Cave Creek Road for 4.2 miles to the junction with Bartlett Dam Road.
  • Turn right onto Bartlett Dam Road. Continue east on Bartlett Dam road for 13.4 miles to the main Bartlett Dam boat ramp. Follow signs that point to the "Jojoba Boating Area".
  • Follow signs to the orienteering event headquarters. We'll typically stage orienteering events from the northwest part of the main parking area.
