“Decent site, but lots of large groups, RV's, vans, & pop-ups”

Reviewed Jun 18, 2019

Overall Rating

The short version: It's an alright location and easy to access, but if real peace and quiet is your goal then you might want to look elsewhere. The long version: There are a fair number of sites, but not a ton. Most site are clumped together in pods but there and a few isolated sites. We went father's day weekend and all of the sit... more

“Beautiful Lakeside Site”

Reviewed Jun 16, 2019

Overall Rating

The campsite was beautiful with a great view of the mountains in the distance. Road was easy enough going in and get a little rough if you turn off to the right. But besides that the road was no trouble!

The site was large and pretty empty, so we didn’t have any trouble finding a spot.

“Great location. Bumpy roads. Weak VZW signal. ”

Reviewed Apr 10, 2018

The dirt road was rough and rutted but to be expected. I learned a thing or 2 about my packing ability as the bumps n ruts rattled and dislodged things in my 33’ MH. The atmosphere however more than made up for the road. The things swayed and the breeze sang. The air was pure and the sky was blue. I could live there... but... We... more

“Looooooved this gorgeous place”

We took Gru, our 38' class a motorhome here and parked in the gorgeous field of yellow grasses. We had no trouble getting or out as long as we took it slow. There were other folks camping here and there (especially during the weekend) but overall this was a beautiful and quiet place to stay. The sunsets were gorgeous and we saw plenty ... more

“Awesome”

Reviewed May 13, 2017

We camped at the south end of the lake. It had rained a few days before so some of the spots were a bit rough. We woke up at about 4:30 am Saturday and found the field full of Elk. Kind of made the place for us. With the snow capped mountains in the background and this marsh lake you will find no other spot more beautiful, and of c... more

“Cold but nice”

Reviewed Apr 28, 2017

Overall Rating

This was our first experience with dispersed camping, so we were a bit nervous at first. There were a few other people there which made us feel better, and it was a really pretty spot. Sites were well spaced out. Only issue was the cold! It got below freezing at night

Less than 10 miles away from Flagstaff, AZ you can take advantage of excellent camping, right next to the (former, now owned by the US Navy)Lowell Observatory. There are two separate sections of the Marshall Lake camping area, a lower and upper. When I arrived in April, the upper was still too muddy and the NFS hadn't opened the gate y... more
