Ashurst Lake Campground

  • Hugging the lakeshore, the campsites at Ashurst Lake Campground are huddled in a picturesque stand of old juniper trees and pinyon pines. One of Ashurst Lake's most notable characteristics is its ability to hold a high water level in drought years. A graveled road to the lake and surrounding the lake provides convenient access for most passenger vehicles and bicycles. Rustic gravel and “two-track” roads in the area offer some great opportunities to mountain bike or hike into the surrounding juniper/ponderosa mixed forest for some wildlife viewing and open spaces. In addition to fishing and board sailing, the lake offers excellent opportunities for birdwatching during the spring waterfowl migration. For a special treat, look for white-faced ibises grazing in the shallows along with cinnamon teal, pintails, and other ducks. Bald eagles and osprey can also be seen in the area, along with a number of species of hawks and songbirds.
