Highlands War 2018 will be held at Mormon Lake Lodge.
Address: 991 Mormon Lake Rd, Mormon Lake, AZ 86038
From I-40 traveling East or West:
Take the Sedona/Phoenix south turn-off and get onto 1-17 South. Take the first off-ramp Sedona 89A/Pulliam Airport exit and turn left and cross back over the freeway and get back onto I-17 North. The first off ramp is Lake Mary Hwy. At the off-ramp stop sign turn right and travel according to the following directions.
Take the Lake Mary Hwy (FH3) about 21 miles (towards Payson) to the Mormon Lake Village turn-off sign. Turn right and travel about 7 miles to the lodge. You will see the roping arena, campground and RV Park on your left and you will not miss the lodge.
Take Hwy 87 north and go through Strawberry and Pine to the little village of Clint’s Well. Just past the store and gas station, turn left and take FH 3 (Lake Mary Hwy) north towards Flagstaff. Travel about 35-40 minutes and you will pass the Stoneman Lake Road turn-off. About seven miles past the Stoneman Lake Road turn off you will see the south entrance to Mormon Lake Village – watch for the Mormon Lake Village sign on the right side of the road. Turn left and travel two miles to the lodge. You will not miss the lodge.
From I-17, on the Stoneman Lake Road:
Get off I-17 on the Stoneman Lake Road turn-off and travel about seven miles on paved road to the end of the paving at a T-intersection with unpaved road. Turn left at the stop sign and travel about eight miles to the next paved road – FH3 (Lake Mary Hwy). Turn left and travel about seven more miles to the south entrance to Mormon Lake Village. Look for the Mormon Lake Village sign on the right side of the road. Turn left and travel two miles to the lodge. You will not miss the lodge.
NOTE: Stoneman Lake Road, while well traveled, is only paved for 7 of 16 miles at the I-17 end of the road; the rest of the road is graded cinder road and might not be suitable for some cars or may be closed in severe weather conditions.
There are large “Mormon Lake Village” forest service signs at both north and south entrances. If you miss either entrance from the Lake Mary Hwy (FH3) you will have a marvelous view of the lakebed as you travel along the mesa road that overlooks the lake and the village on the opposite side. You can turn around and travel back to the nearest entrance or continue on to the next entrance. Mormon Lake Road (FH90) loops the lakebed and is accessed from either, the north, or south end of the lake. Munds Park Road is not recommended unless you have a good forest service map, are familiar with the terrain, and have a solid, high clearance, vehicle.
Watch out for elk and deer!
