Gorgeous scenery. Cool, refreshing mountain country air. That's two good reasons to visit Ashurst Lake about 23 miles southeast of Flagstaff Arizona. Here's more reasons. Fishing for stocked rainbow and brook trout, canoeing, windsurfing, camping, hiking, mountain biking and picture perfect views of San Francisco Peaks.
This medium size Northern Arizona lake has a reputation of holding water even during long drought spells. Enjoy the canpground nearby, pitch your tent, or park your camper and throw out a lawn chair. Kickback, cast a line and try and catch a lunker. Or, just relax and enjoy the great outdoors.
