Lynx lake is always a family favorite whenever we decide to venture into Prescott for some outdoor activity. We've fished, hiked and seen a few bald eagles at Lynx Lake. Great family lake.

We went here to check out the trails around the lake and were disappointed at the parking fee. We paid it and did enjoy our outing on the trails but wouldn't do it on a regular basis.

This is a real nice lake and we enjoyed our day visit. The camp sites are nice but far away from the water. The picnic areas are good and their was not a lot of people. But if your handicapped you will find it hard to find a place on the bank to fish as the banks are to steep for any one who is handicapped, there is no docks to fish from. Other wise it is worth the visit. We were their about 5 hours and never saw a Ranger or any other personal.

We go tent camping about five times/yr. from Vegas. This is by far one of the best spots we've been to.

Many of the camp spots (including the one we went to) are very private and spacious. The sound doesn't carry, so it was quiet compared to most. Probably the cleanest campground I've been to. Clean facilities as well.

I read the reviews about the safety and the buys, but didn't find any of those issues.

Also, tons of dirt road excursions in the area and lots to do.

We will be back!
