Quiet getaway close to town

We were here mid week in September and it was very quiet. The sites were private and nicely spaced with a good amount of trees. It was a short walk to the lake. We enjoyed the loop walk around the lake as well as taking the kayaks out from the south boat ramp. It was also an easy drive a few miles to Prescott to restock on groceries. I'm not sure if it is different on weekends but it was very peaceful when we were there. About 50/50 tent campers and small or medium RVs/trailers.

Great spot if you like to hike, bike and kayak..!

Many spots - very close to Prescott, in the trees, and on the Lake at about 5,000 feet -- what could be better -- camping at it's finest..

Campsite is clean and very easy to reserve ahead of time on the supported website which is very easy to use and see all the items open.

Great campground, nice lake

This is a great little campground.  There are a few spots for bigger rigs as well as some double spaces.  The spaces are very nice and quite large in most cases.  The hosts were very nice.  The campground fills up pretty quickly.  The lake is very nice, to kayak on and fishing is good as well.

Great Area

Got a Beautiful spot overlooking Lynx Lake. Sites are spread out enough that there is plenty of privacy between the spots. Running water from a pump and the out house style toilets were clean. The camp host was incredibly friendly and helpful to all of our questions. The campsite is only 5 minutes from the lynx creek gold panning area and the pueblos ruins, as well as only 15 minutes from everything in downtown Prescott. Heard coyotes howling at night and saw a few deer passing through the area as well.

Mother Daughter camping

We stayed at a single site. It was not to far from the lake, a short hike down the hill. The Hosts were great. They would check to see if we needed anything or just drive through & wave. I really liked the proximity to a store. But it was still far enough away where we were in the woods! I will stay there again! A plus for parents. They had flushing toilets & a pump close by with drinking water.

Beautiful

Great camp sites. Been camping here for years.

The Best Views in Prescott!...

Definitely one of the best campgrounds in the area. With several hiking trails around and to the lake- one will have enough activity to do. Fees are not crazy expensive either. And it is only located about 15 minutes from downtown Prescott. But make sure to make reservations online beforehand because spots tend to fill up pretty quickly! Have fun!

Crowded but fun

This campground has tons of amenities and is not far at all from downtown Prescott. It seemed pretty crowded when we went, so we actually hiked around a bit to find a little more seclusion. Amenities were good and plenty of activities.

Lynx Campground, Prescott, AZ

Very busy and popular US Forest Service campground, conveniently located near Prescott and Prescott Valley, AZ. All sites are reserved, no first come first serve (only open if there's no reservation). A bit lower in elevation than nearby Hilltop Campground, with less tall pines. Clean sites, picnic tables, fire rings, water on taps, and cell service. Nearby Lynx Lake is a very popular day use recreation area. Shopping and restaurants are abundant and all within a few miles.

Beautiful Lake Area

I loved camping at Lynx lake due to the fantastic scenery and hiking trails that surround the lake.
