Ashurst Lake

Basics
Location:
23 miles southeast of Flagstaff on paved roads
Elevation:
7000 feet
Season:
Early May to mid October

Description

There are a number of reasons to visit Ashurst Lake. First, since it's regularly stocked with rainbow and brook trout, it's an excellent place to fish. It's a good place to paddle your canoe, too, or to windsurf or enjoy any of a number of other water sports. A paved road to the lake and a gravel one around it provides a good place to ride your mountain bike. The setting's not bad either. The San Francisco Peaks stand picture perfect on the horizon.

Ashurst Lake is medium-sized, as northern Arizona lakes go, but it has a reputation for holding water even through long dry spells. That's especially important here, where periods of low precipitation can last long enough to dry up less resilient bodies of water. There's a convenient campground nearby, where you can pitch your tent or park your camper in the shade of a gnarly and set out your lawn chair within casting distance of the lake. And if you don't catch any lunkers, you can always enjoy the peace and quiet and the bragging-size scenery.
