Lakeview Campground is located near Upper Lake Mary with easy access to the water via the Wood Memorial Trail (0.5 miles) or by car. Many other lakes such as Ashurst Lake, Kinnikinick Lake, Marshall Lake, and Lower Lake Mary are within easy driving distance, as are many hiking trails, including the Arizona Trail. The lakes are stocked with a variety of fish including trout, bass, and channel catfish. Upper Lake Mary is also popular with power boaters and there is currently no motor size limit (most other lakes in the area have an 10 horsepower motor size limit).
Lakeview Campground is a tent camper’s paradise with its terraced, hillside camp sites creatively tucked in amongst an open old growth stand of ponderosa pine. With all the easy forest and lake access, this is a also great place for wildlife watchers. Many visitors report seeing bald eagle, osprey, migratory waterfowl, great blue heron, elk, and mule deer.
