“Great Location Very Close to Prescott”

Reviewed Oct 18, 2017

Overall Rating

This is a nice Forest Service campground that is just minutes away from Prescott, but feels more remote. Lynx Lake is a very busy campground and reservations are required as it is always booked during the summer. We were in loop G, site 28, which is a very level parallel spot with a nice steel firepit and table. There is some road ... more

Lovely Campground but we didn't get to stay. You definitely need reservations for this Campground. Instead we went one mile up the road and stayed at Hilltop

Upon arrival I talked to the host to decide which sites were available & which could fit our 33ft 5th wheel. Many of the spots are for smaller rigs. We chose a spot based on her recommendation, set up only to find out it was a double spot so we had to pay double. But it was a very quiet, large spot with tree coverage and it worked out ... more

“Hiking from the campground...”

Reviewed Apr 11, 2016

Overall Rating

Price reflects a group site rate--we opted for a slightly more private setting and paid double. Most sites are in a ring with your rig positioned above the picnic and fire area. This is due to the lovely hillside location. Site #19 was pull-through. Heavily shaded campground makes portable solar a requirement and, I am sure, a ni... more

“Great location in the woods”

Reviewed Oct 31, 2015

Overall Rating

Our rate reflects the 50% golden age passport discount. We stayed in the upper campground, Hilltop, which is first come first serve. However, as the campground was closing the day after we left, there was hardly anyone there. We saw 1 or 2 other campers. All the roads here are paved and each campsite is nestled among the pies and h... more

“Convenience by the Lake”

Reviewed Sep 25, 2015

Overall Rating

We pulled into Lynx Lake Campground on a weekday when the place was almost empty. There are 8 loops with just a few sites in each making it a pretty quiet park overall. All roads are paved and the campground hosts keep the sites very well maintained. In each loop there are pit toilets and water, not to be used to fill the tank direc... more

“Minutes From Town But Feels Like A Lifetime”

Reviewed May 11, 2015

Overall Rating

Amazing how you can just go 2 miles outside of town and feel like you have traveled for hours. This is a popular campground and it fills up on the weekends with reservations. We were able sneak in mid-week and enjoyed our time here. We will stay here again in the future, but will try and avoid the weekends when the I think the cr... more
