The following is a list of islands of Arizona. With 113,634.57 mi² (294,312 km²) of land, the state of Arizona is the sixth largest state in the country. It is the third largest state to not have an ocean coastline—after Montana and New Mexico. Despite being landlocked, Arizona does contain islands, even though the state has the third lowest amount of water at only 363.73 mi² (942 km²) after West Virginia and New Mexico. Arizona's 0.32% of water is the second lowest percentage after New Mexico's 0.2% of water.[1] The majority of Arizona's islands are in the Colorado River (mainly Lake Mead). Lake Roosevelt also contains a number of islands.
