Wickenburg Overview

Wickenburg is a small desert town located in Maricopa County, Arizona, about 35 miles northwest of Phoenix. It has a population of about 5,000 people. The town sits at the junction of US 93 and US 60. It is a great place to stop and have lunch before you get to Phoenix.

Associated with Wickenburg is a sad history and a beautiful tourist location - Pleasant Lake:is near Wickenburg, Arizona. Wickenburg is part of the Old West with dirt roads and all.

Getting to Lake Pleasant is easy. From Wickenburg, take route 60 (East Wickenburg Way, which turns into Grand Avenue) south to route 74. Turn left (the only way you can go) to head eastbound. Drive for about 20 miles through some of the most beautiful and barely touched Sonoran Desert landscape around. (Enjoy it while it lasts; developers will be turning it into housing developments and strip malls as soon as they can.)

Boat owners love boating on the lake it is also a members club where boat owners pay membership to keep their boats docked during the months when they are not in use.
