Lynx Lake is one of the most popular recreation areas in central Arizona. Mild weather, the cool ponderosa pine forest, a serene 55-acre lake, trout fishing, boating, hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, archaeological sites, and bird watching...more

If you like a well maintained and relatively short trail around a small but lovely lake, this is the place for you. Just a couple of miles off of Hwy 69 and downtown Prescott, this has covered picnic tables as well as beautifully forested terrain....More
This campground is absolutely beautiful. The staff is friendly and the place is very clean. There are many hiking trails just right off the campground that leads to the lake. We rented kayaks that was $20 an hour. You can’t beat that price!
A deeply wooded surrounding and pristine lake, Lynx Lake seems a very popular place for local families. Many are kayaking, boating, fishing, picnicing, hiking, or just relaxing. But the place is big enough that it doesn't feel crowded. I did a very fast-paced walk around...More
Lynx Lake is 55 acres of man-made beauty nestled in the Bradshaw Mountains just southeast of Prescott Valley Arizona. My wife and I made a quick stopover to the area during a recent Prescott vacation. We definitely need to see more!

6 miles from our house and it feels like we're way far away. Tensions drain away quickly here. A nice trail all the way around the lake without tiring my old legs. Even saw a bald eagle one time perched on top of a dead...More
We did a Prescott lake tour, and started with Watson Lake. That made our visit to Lynx Lake a bit of a disappointment. It's not nearly as scenic, and the views are not as spectacular. But it was a very nice lake. There are lots...More
We started our hike early (around 8am) and had a quiet, scenic and fun stroll with our dogs. Met nice people along the way. We hiked all the way around the lake, stopping at several spots along the way, and it took us about two...More
This is a large lake area open to the public managed by the Forestry Department. You can walk around the lake, have a picnic or eat at the local restaurant. During nesting season you can see the eagles soar. A great place for family and...More
Nice lake with picnic sites, fishing from the shore, boat rentals, a hiking path around the lake and plenty of parking. On the north shore is a nice restaurant. Keep your eyes open for the eagles that nest there.
Been here numerous times for kayaking, and still enjoy it as much now as the first time. The south sore picnic area can get crowded on weekends, but out on the lake it is always quiet. Great place to just unwind.

Hi. I drove through the campground loops, but did not see a site directly on the water. Instead, they're elevated with a short hike down to the water's edge. (If you're inquiring regarding your boat, you'd like have to haul it out each night.) Yes, I believe that you can have a Jon Boat. I saw a smaller pontoon boat on the lake, with a motor. Also, there is a marina that rents boats. You may want to give them a call.
