Marshall Lake: Elevation about 7,211 feet.
Marshall Lake is a very small is a small marshy body of water that can be dry during some parts of the year.
A Google Earth Map search marks the center of Marshall Lake at about 35o 05' 23.28" N 111o 30' 46.35" W.
Marshall Lake, which is actually more of a marsh than a lake, is frequented by bald eagles in the winter and osprey in the summer. Several species of waterfowl, such as coots, and a variety of small hawks are generally present year-round.
A number of primitive campsites near the east side of the lake provide exceptional views of the nearby peaks. The surrounding area also contains plentiful elk herds and rare wintering bald eagles.
It usually opens in early May and is closed in mid-October. A very primitive boat launch is on the east side of the lake. Camping next to the lake is not allowed; camp on the other side of the road. There is no toilets, tables, or drinking water available.
To Get There:
Drive 9 miles south from Flagstaff on Forest Highway 3 (Lake Mary Road). Turn east (left) on Forest Road 128 about 3 miles to the lake. The last mile is unpaved and may be blocked at times due to mud or snow.
