The Bartlett Lake Bash is held the 3rd weekend in May and September. We have been going for a few years, and I gotta tell you its a BLAST! We usually go up the day before (this trip we're going May 17 thru 20) so we can find a decent spot. Bring your watertoys too - we bring our jet skis. Bartlett Lake is about 50 miles northeast of central Phoenix. Go to www.bartlettlakebash.com for more info and directions. You must purchase Tonto National Forest passes for camping and watercraft.
If we have a rough idea how many from RRV are coming, we can look for a large enough area to accomodate a group. So let us know. Hope to see many of you!
