Canyon Vista Campground is situated 6 miles down Lake Mary Road on the left. Canyon Vista is a great place to camp is you are looking to explore Walnut Canyon to the north of the campground or for those looking for a place to overnight while hiking the Arizona Trail. Canyon Vista is also a good place to start if all of the campgrounds are booked up on the busy holiday weekends during summer along with Lake View, Pine Grove, and Ashurst Lake and Forked Pine campgrounds

There are 11 campsites with fire rings, vault toilets and cooking grills. The closest fishing and boating are at Lower Lake Mary. If Lower Lake Mary is empty, try Upper Lake Mary just East of Lower Lake Mary.  The Scenic Arizona trail takes you 6 miles to Marshall lake and offers splendid views of the San Francisco Peaks and Walnut Canyon.


From Flagstaff, Take the I-17 south to Lake Mary Road. Travel east on Lake Mary Road for 6 miles until you reach the Campgrounds.
