DescriptionUpper Lake Mary is the largest of Flagstaff's twin lakes. It is also the one farthest from town. This long, narrow impoundment is especially popular with power boaters and water skiers because there is no motor size limit on it. But it's also popular with those who prefer people power or windpower over horsepower. For that reason, you're liable to see everything from jet boats to rubber rafts, canoes and sailboats all sharing this same body of water.
A lot of people come here to fish, too. The lake has northern pike, channel cat, crappie and some trout. Lake Mary Narrows Recreation Area provides excellent access facilities for disabled anglers by means of paved lakeshore ramps. Two developed campgrounds, Lake View and Pine Grove are nearby. There are two paved boat ramps at the parking area near the dam, and you'll find a lakeside picnic area and another boat ramp at Lake Mary Narrows Recreation Area in addition to its paved fishing access ramps.
