When you want to spend a good summer time with your family, this is a peaceful and quiet perfect place. Lake Mary has camping places and cabins. It is very close to Flagstaff and there is no problem to get whatever you want.

We met friends at the Narrows at the far end of the lake and had a good afternoon of paddleboarding for adults and kayaking for kids. There is a double boat ramp at this location on Lake Mary with a day pass cost of $8. Fishing is always an option for those with either a boat or a chair on... More

Lake Mary is a pretty lake but if you want to fish you might want to go durring off seasons or weekdays. Through the summer it is a very busy place with boaters.

Head to the far east end of the lake, The Narrows and put in at the picnic area. Great for paddle boarding and a nice shady picnic area near the water. This place is great for handicapped. Not a great place to swim, as the water is a little muddy and crawdads frequent the shallows, but good for a picnic... More

After a long day of hiking or mountain biking, I recommend jumping in! The lake is a little murky, from silt, but super clean and refreshing!

Lake down to a thimble of water. Too bad because you can imagine what it would be like when it was full.

Avoid Lower Lake Mary because there is no "lake." It's bone dry. And the Upper Lake Mary is fine if you are going boating but it is not suitable for swimming or fishing.

Updated review for this year. This lake has beautiful surroundings but the lake itself is terrible. The water level is very low and the water is so dirty you can see it in the wakes of boats from the road above. I would not bring a boat to this lake....esp all the way from Phoenix. Plus parking is expensive, so... More

Driving around to see wildlife, did see deer and antalope. Love seeing God's handy word. There was no water in sight in upper Lake Mary. But a nice drive .

Please change this location. It's coming up on the map as Lake Mary Florida. Not Flagstaff Arizona. Please change the location. Please change the location
