Title: Camping July 8-10th Lake Mary near Flagstaff
Post by: Hammer (Avi) on June 12, 2016, 12:11:16 AM
I apologize to anyone who was hoping to have this trip on the 22nd, something came up and this is the only weekend I can lead the trip.  Please feel free to post a member event if anyone would still like to get together that weekend.  So, the plan is to head up to Lower Lake Mary the weekend of the 8th-10th.  It has been a couple years, but if memory serves there are plenty of easily accessable camp sites Here (https://www.google.com/maps/dir/Phoenix,+AZ/35.1122452,-111.5425289/@35.1089805,-111.5458098,2293m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m8!4m7!1m5!1m1!1s0x872b12ed50a179cb:0x8c69c7f8354a1bac!2m2!1d-112.0740373!2d33.4483771!1m0)  just south of Marshal Lake. 

I plan to leave Friday, hopefully around mid day, so a caravan may be an option.  Please Post if you will be attending, when you will be able to leave, and if you would like to caravan.

Thanks,
Avi and the AZXC team.

Update: Just an FYI there is a fire restriction for the area, I always have trouble with the "developed recreation site"  line.  The spot we will be camping is pretty frequently camped, but I don't know if it falls under the classification as developed.   I never do until I get to a spot as they change year to year, sometimes there is a sign that says it is, and other times nothing.

I'm in! I haven't really camped around Flag much. I did however, camp over by Lake Mary and we had a great weekend. It was pretty civilized camping. I'd like to hit a a camp that's a little less traveled if possible. ;)

Should we cap the distance from phoenix to say 3 hours?  I know it is tough for people to drive that far, with gas prices and everything.  Also, there are pay camp sites, but I think as a club we usually avoid those.   Currently I am thinking of a spot north of Lake Mary or east of Payson.

The further north the better Payson is the nearest but will be the warmest.
Pretty much no further then Flagstaff.

Im good anywhere pay to play is fine with me. I don't mind the heat during the day as long as it cools off at night.

Somewhere up on the Rim would be cool. Like either Bear Canyon Lake or Knoll lake

Myself and the wife will be heading up later on Friday. Trying to leave before the sun goes down, planning to be on our way between 5 and 6pm. If we have an idea of where camp will be please post up GPS so we can find you.

I believe we might be caravan ing with Pitsnipe too.

Post by: Clifford3200 on July 05, 2016, 05:08:50 PM
I'd prefer to go up mid day, but Pax gets out of class at 530 so if we could get a more precise location for camping spots and whether or not it requires payment, that would be awesome.

Aslo, I'm very in the dark about this location and have no idea what to expect, is it at a lake or no; if so, how close is it to the water? Ect?

It's close to a pond, some people fish there.  But I wouldn't get in the water.

Hey Pinchel (Rob)..and everyone else coming camping:

I think it may be best for everyone to bring a bag of firewood each.

We can bring eggs for breakfast Saturday morning (enough for everyone) and bacon (enough for everyone) and tortillas (enough for everyone). Maybe someone else can bring breakfast stuff for Sunday morning (Rob or Kyle?) or anyone else who wants to.

Then for Saturday night, AZXC will buy carne asada tacos for everyone (fixings) included.

Then we can all bring something to share with the group for Saturday night dinner (sides, dessert, etc.). We (Hammer and I) will bring watermelon and chips and salsa.

If you can, please post what you are bringing!

I hear that's one of the best camping spots in AZ, weather should be perfect. I wish I could make it up, but my wife and I couldn't get Friday off.
