“Peaceful retreat off the highway”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2012

Like Lake Mormon, which is also of the highway heading to Flagstaff, Lake Mary currently suffers from a lack of water. The entire region is very dry and thus, the levels of the recreational lakes are very low and muddy, which makes for a less attractive water view but still does not detract from what remains a picturesque setting, perfect for a quiet picnic or contemplation. The surrounding pine forest is also part of a picture-perfect setting, along with the blue skies and peace of the wild.

“Beautiful Little lake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2012

Love this little lake in the mountains. Its so peaceful and beautiful. Surrounded by beautiful pinetrees, elk coming right up to the lake. The fishing is really good to we caught a lot of pike. This is my favorite place because of the surroundings!

“Not much of a lake but attractive and accessible.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2012

Unfortunately, the lakes around Flagstaff are susceptible to lack of rain and when we visited Upper Lake Mary it was very low and muddy. Lower Lake Mary is a meadow. The fishing conditions at Upper Lake Mary were not exactly positive. But it is pretty and very accessible so it's definitely worth a visit.
