Smaller local lake great for boating, swimming, and water skiing. Not crowded like some lakes. Good boating facilities make putting your boat in and out easy. A nice little lake for relaxing on the water.

This long, narrow lake is quite pretty. Fairly shallow, good for fishing, canoeing and kayaking. $9.00 per day for boat launching. Many pull off areas to view the lake.

It's an ok lake. No real fishing from shore unless you don't mind weeds. Good place to see wildlife and nice sunsets

Today it is snowing but I wanted to take a look at the lakes around flagstaff. Upper is full and the ground is covered in snow so I didn't stop to fish. I will be coming back soon to give it a shot

We decided to visit after hearing about this at Riordan house. Nice drive although it was too chilly to picnic. Worth the visit in the summer.

Lake Mary is a great area for boating, camping and sightseeing for the whole family. I went during early spring, after one of the best winter snowfalls in a long time. Lower Lake Mary had water in it, which is more often, not the case....More

if you are just visiting as a day trip I believe it is free. There are camping sites which require a fee.
