Ashurst Lake Campground

 

Ashurst Lake is comprised of two separate campgrounds with one host. Situated on both the west and east sides of the lake, there are 25 campsites at each campground. At the western campground (Ashurst Lake), the trees are more dense providing a little more cover in the summer months. Forked Pine Campground offers better views of the San Francisco Peaks, the tallest mountain in Arizona at 12,643 feet.

Fishing at Ashurst Lake is fair with Northern Pike and stocked Rainbow Trout. Muddy waters makes for slow fly fishing, but bait fishing can reward you with large Northern Pike. I have had numerous fisherman at Ashurst tell me that corn soaked in minced garlic works wonder to get a bent pole often.

There is a very nice quad area just past the turnoff to Ashurst Lake off of Lake Mary Road. Once you get to the turnoff for Ashurst Lake, drive up throught the couple uphill turns and take your first left on to a dirt road. About a 1/4 mile to 1/2 mile back is an area cleared out and ready to ride some jumps. (look at the white area on the map below northwest of the campgrounds)

Directions

From Flagstaff travel south 2 miles to Lake Mary Road then head east approx. 24 miles to FR 82E. Take FR 82E 4 miles to Lake Ashurst.
