Camp at Marshall Lake

Arizona Marshall Lake

Added by

Marshall Lake offers great campsites near the lake with plenty of trails nearby to get out and stretch your legs.

If you’re looking for spacious campsites, starry skies, wooded hiking trails, and peaceful surroundings, Marshall Lake in Flagstaff, AZ is the perfect campground for you! Marshall Lake is located about 9 miles south of Flagstaff on Forest Highway 3 (Lake Mary Road). Turn left (east) on Forest Road 128 and after 2-3 miles of paved road, you will veer off towards Marshall Lake (follow the sign) on an unpaved road (high clearance vehicle is not required). Almost immediately you will see a number of free, primitive campsites dotting the forest for the next few miles.

You can’t go wrong with any of these campsites; each has a fire pit, plenty of pine trees to provide shelter from the rain or sun, and a good amount of privacy from your neighbors. Another mile or so down this road you will run into an Arizona Trail trailhead and, a bit further, Marshall Lake itself. This section of the Arizona Trail is great for hiking or trail running. Hike or run 5.6 miles to Fisher Point for amazing views of the Cococino Forest, or go a little further and explore small, tucked away caves just off the trail. Marshall Lake is relatively small and marshy, but usually has enough water to be stocked with trout by the Arizona Game and Fish Department.
