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.
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)
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.
