Reel in a feisty fish, paddle along in a canoe, or windsurf your way across Ashurst Lake for an enjoyable time on the water. Located 20 miles southeast of Flagstaff, it's the perfect place to get out into nature.
Shove off in a boat, canoe, or kayak from the boat ramp, then enjoy the soothing scenery of the San Francisco Peaks. If fishing is your game, the lake is regularly stocked with rainbow and brook trout. Looking for some action on the shoreline? Settle into a campsite or a picnic table, which are near basic amenities. The gravel road around the lake is primed for mountain biking, jogging, or leisurely casting a fishing line into the lake as well. Even through dry spells the lake is known to hold water, so it's ready for adventure when you are!
Roast your freshly caught fish over a fire and camp out under the stars. Lodging options are also available in nearby Flagstaff.
