As the temperatures in the desert valleys creep up into the triple digits, people start flocking to Arizona’s high country. The Mormon Lake area is a popular summer retreat, with many small lakes and several good campgrounds lining scenic Lake Mary Road south from Flagstaff toward Payson. Our favorite of these is Kinnikinick Lake, a little gem in the pinyon-juniper grasslands. The route from Flagstaff takes you past Upper Lake Mary, a popular spot for boating, waterskiing, fishing, and bird-watching, to Mormon Lake. This is Arizona’s largest natural lake, but don’t expect much fishing here, as it’s often nearly dry. The resulting marshy pasture is a great place to view wildlife, so stop at the overlook and see if you can spot a bald eagle flying overhead, or elk grazing on the tall grasses.
