“Things have come so far with this property! The rooms are looking great, the beds are amazing, and the entire staff goes beyond great hospitality! Ate both dinner and breakfast at the resort restaurant. The amazing shrimp dinner still has me eating leftovers 2 days later. You definitely do not leave hungry!”

Apache Trail Route

Taking the Apache Trail from the Metropolitan Phoenix area is, to say the least, the most majestically scenic route leading to Roosevelt Resort. However, it is not the quickest nor for the faint of heart being along a narrow dirt road with tight hair-pin turns and few guard rails over steep mountainous terrain. This route is perfect for a day of sightseeing. If you do decide to brave it, once you reach Theodore Roosevelt Dam, turn right on Highway 188. Following the highway, you'll pass Tonto National Monument to your right and finally arrive at Roosevelt Resort's long winding driveway entrance on your left. You have arrived in Paradise!

From Apache Junction & Mesa

Take US-60 Freeway through Apache Junction. Turn left on paved State Route 88. Pass Canyon Lake to reach Tortilla Flat. The paved road will turn to dirt shortly thereafter which becomes very narrow, winding through the cliffs where you will eventually pass Apache Lake on the way to Roosevelt Lake. Beware those who have a fear of heights. If you decide to brave it, you will not be disappointed with this magnificently beautiful route to Roosevelt, AZ. Turn right where Hwy. 88 meets Hwy. 188, continuing on pass the Upper Cliff Dwellings and soon you will arrive at Roosevelt Resort on your left.

From Phoenix

These directions are good from West, Central, and East Phoenix. Take Highway 87 (Beeline Highway) north passing Fountain Hills to Highway 188 South through Jake's Corner and Punkin Center to Lake Roosevelt. Remain on Hwy. 188 passing Tonto National Park Indian Ruins and finally arrive at Roosevelt Resort's long winding driveway entrance to your left. Total distance ranges from about 80-120 miles depending on origination point. The farther east you are in the Phoenix area, the shorter the distance. If coming from Scottsdale, take Shea Blvd. to Fountain Hills, then turn left onto Highway 87, following the same directions above.

From Apache Junction & Queen Creek

An all paved option with granite boulder views, take US 60 out of Apache Junction. Past Miami, Arizona and before reaching Globe, Arizona, turn left (North) on Highway 188 heading toward Roosevelt Lake. Globe is a good stopping point to pick up those last minute forgotten travel items. Remain on Hwy. 188 for about 20 minutes where you will arrive at Roosevelt Resort's long winding driveway entrance to your right. You'll see a highway sign 'Roosevelt Lake Resort', then our front entrance sign shortly thereafter. You have arrived at your vacation destination, Roosevelt Resort Park.
