Located Just Outside Prescott, Az. Lynx Lake offers This 55-acre lake quietly sets amidst tall pines in the cool Bradshaw Mountains high country just a few miles southeast of Prescott, Arizona.
Lynx Lake is a relatively small lake, yet it draws over 125,000 visitors annually. At a 5,500 foot elevation, the cool, refreshing summer temperatures attracts a great number of visitors from the Phoenix area wanting to escape the desert heat. Lynx is the centerpiece of the Prescott National Forest and features boating, fishing, camping, hiking and tranquil solitude. Swimming in the lake is prohibited.
Access to the lake has been provided for the physically challenged. Only boats with electric motors are permitted on the lake, but the calm sapphire waters are ideal for kayaking, sailing and canoeing enthusiasts. Boat rentals are available at the Lynx Lake Store which features a cafe. The store is only open from late spring to early fall and it is always closed on Mondays.
