Metropolitan Phoenix, and its suburbs, are the closest cities of any size to Saguaro Lake. Nothing else above 50,000 anywhere near.

You can get all your answers and more from google maps. Type in "saguaro lake az" and zoom out until you see houses.

Mesa would be the closest suburb. It depends on what you mean by "close enough"-- close enough for what?

AzDreamer is right. You can get good detail info on this from Google maps.

Google maps don't tell me about a persons opinion. I figured out by looking at Google Earth that Mesa was close that appealed to me most.

"Close Enough" meaning driving distance for boating. 60 to 45 minute drive?

Mesa, to Saguaro Lake, would work for you.

Thoughts on Peoria (Lake Pleasant) areas? Which would you prefer and why?

Saguaro is within 60 minutes of a lot of the metro area including Mesa. It is overrun with boats (many of which are woefully inappropriate for the little lake it is), people and a complete zoo by 10am on weekends and gets closed to additional boaters. On the way out you can plan on sobriety checkpoints. It seems half the people on the roads and the water around Saguaro are loaded.
