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. Site #19. Pull through. Covered pavilion with 2 concrete picnic tables & a metal ring firepit. Only 1 neighbor. Vault toilets, potable water fill, dumpster, trailhead to the lake all right across the street. We decided to back out instead of driving the tight loop around to exit. The campground was very quiet. Close to lots of shopping but feels like you're miles away. - Ontheroamagain

Good dry camp close enough to the town of Prescott to enjoy all its amenities. Fully paved roads and pads; concrete picnic tables; raked crushed gravel area for tenting or canopy; metal fire ring - although covered when we were there due to fire restrictions; water spigot near each camp area; walked to the restaurant/store at the other end of the lake and it was nothing special - we had desserts which were bland and gave us second thoughts about returning for any other meals. Like all government campgrounds we've been to, plenty of space between sites. Only comment is not the campground's fault - dog droppings all along the interior roadsides. What are people thinking? - pyrthkr

For Memorial day we decided to take the family on an overdue camping trip to Lynx Lake Campground. I grew up in and around the Dewey area but I have not been back in probably over 20 years. I am absolutely amazed how much this place has changed! And for the better. Lucky for us, we planned our trip ahead of time and made a reservation online so we were guaranteed a good camp site. We left Phoenix late Friday morning in 100+ weather and arrived in Prescott about 2 hours later to a very pleasant 75 degrees. We passed Costco and headed south on Walker towards the beautiful tall pines before finally arriving at the Lynx Campground. Upon arrival we talked to the friendly camp hosts who directed us to our secluded campsite and talked to us about gold panning places and then provided us with useful maps and information about the area. There was a fire ban in effect when we visited and no campfires were permitted. We didn't care for that very much but we understand the need to have active banning of fires. The campground is very well taken care of and the restrooms are the cleanest we have seen anywhere. Nights were very quiet and peaceful. Quiet hours are enforced between 10pm and 6AM and despite the campground being full on a busy holiday weekend everyone seemed respectful of one another. There are no hookups available at Lynx but there is potable water spigots are available in each of the 8 loops. We were informed that Lynx is considered a remote camp facility and on a limited water system so make sure you fill up your RV or trailer with water before arriving or you might be disappointed. There are no dump stations but there are several free public dump stations close by. Overall we had an awesome trip and we are already making plans to re-visit Lynx again soon. - Tekwoman

Well located in Prescott Valley close to town and shopping. No shade at all and can be too windy for awnings. For Elks members only. Quiet location on top of bluff overlooking park. Gravel, mostly level back-in spots, many large rigs. On site RV Host not very helpful, but go into the lodge because the members there were very friendly & welcoming. - gtogrl1

This is a nice campground that sits on top of a hill around a bunch of rock out cropping's. Some sites are a little tough to get into. The road going to the upper end could be a problem if another rv'er is coming from the other direction. Air TV is tough, the 22 channels you get mostly go in and out. There is no cable. Wi/fi worked good. Roads get a little dusty but are in decent shape. This place has a state park feel to it. Making a left hand turn out of the campground can be a little dangerous due to the blind turn. Overall its a decent place, just would need to be updated to get a high rating then what I'm giving it now. - NPmoto

This was the first time I stayed at this park in my 40 ft RV and SUV toad.
The park is really cool, as you are surrounded by huge rocks jutting out of the ground all around you. It makes for great climbs, star watching, and sunsets. There is a lake nearby and the town of Prescott is about 10 min away. The staff was excellent and friendly and helped me with several reservation changes. I only gave this park a 7 because they are upgrading the facilities and are not quite done. They are doing a great job, adding more 50 amp sites, new washer dryers, redo of the office, etc.
My only real problem was the lack of gravel, asphalt, or concrete. Every road is a dirt road as well as the sites, and the park is dusty from the wind, and traffic. That dust gets carried into the RV by air, dogs, and feet. Once this is fixed I would give the park a 9.
Satellite can be a problem at some of the sites due to tress, so pick carefully. - JCat

This is a unique park, lots of big boulders create private spots. Small and large spots available. Roomy sites, quiet. Close to Prescott: but still a 12-15 minute drive. Very clean. - kallee

Very nice retirement / full time RV park. Great location, very nice full timers living here. Our space (#3) was plenty long but narrow with no room for our awning. Now for the reason for my 6. The owners are a little uptight and did not make us feel welcome. We reserved bookend weekends and they somehow lost our reservation for the following weekend. It seems they just tolerate the weekend folks here. We stayed instead at another campground the next weekend, and loved that place. - TnB

This is a tough park to review. There isn't really anything necessarily bad about it. However, you have to realize that this is a mobile home park that has reserved a few spaces for RV's. All the mobile homes are clean and very well kept. The residents were all very friendly along with the staff. We stayed in spot 149 and the lady next door was incredibly friendly and glad to have new neighbors for a few days. The reason we didn't love it is because when we are in our RV, we like to be surrounded by people traveling and vacationing like we are as opposed to just being in a mobile home park. The proximity to Whiskey Row is tough to beat. The park is incredibly clean and everyone was friendly. It just isn't our type of place to stay. - longweekends

Clean older park with mostly permanent, well kept dwellings. Our site, for our 34 footer and Jeep was fairly small but adequate. The bathroom facilities are unusual for a motorhome park: one toilet and one sink. Period. Amazingly, we never had to wait for anyone however. Payment here is cash only. As an earlier reviewer mentioned, this park's main advantage is its close proximity to the town square, 15 min walk or $4.75 taxi each way if you want to experience "Whisky Row" which is highly recommended. - robbo67

Staying here - it is MONTHLY only. Prefers 2-3 month minimum. No extra amenities, but OK park. Very close to town and stores. Rent is $294 for the month - includes taxes.
Water is city water so tastes good and adequate pressure.
Electric is a direct bill to the Electric Company - hence the 2-3 month minimum stay. Amperage is excellent and consistent, even with AC in summer.
Sewer outlet adequate. - Downsizer

Very, very tight spots for large rigs. Narrow lanes. Tree limbs in the way. Tables on wrong side. Lot spacing is very close and mostly shady. Site surfaces are gravel and feature picnic tables. - Edward972

Old KOA and only a few spaces for transients . Mostly old permanents, clean but noisy. Lots of trucks speeding thru the campground. All night. Good for one night only. - GNG

This is the first/last time we'll stay here. The HUGE and numerous speed bumps caused the bottom of our car/toad to scrape on them, causing damage. The 5 MPH speed limit in the park apparently doesn't apply to the management/employees as they zip around the park in their carts at 15-20 MPH. Although "big rig friendly", the site we were assigned had trees so close that we could barely extend the slides, and couldn't open the awnings. When the wind blew, it caused the tree branches to scrape the side of the coach. One of our "neighbors" had 5 dogs with them, another had three. They tied them to the BBQ base next to our coach, and their lovely little pets left "deposits" near our coach. Lots of sites contained VERY long term campers, some with RV license tags that had expired many years ago. This left a negative impression, as some of those sites looked pretty run down. On a plus side, the showers provided were clean. We had water heater problems, and my wife used the showers at the park. The location is convenient to northern Prescott, and also allows relatively quick access to the Gateway Mall in central Prescott. We won't be staying here in the future. - pagosajoe

This is a great place close in to Prescott. Located in the Prescott National Forest. 10 minutes to the heart of the town yet the campground feels remote inside the forest area. Good place to be situated to explore the surrounding area. Even a day trip to Jerome was doable. The sites are spread out well and paved nicely and ours in 24, was level and private. This is dry camping. The water is off in the winter season. We are having low 70 temps. Pretty awesome for winter. There are several loops but not all open in winter. The website stated only 12 are open but there are many more open. Not crowded at all right now. The price does go up in the summer season when the water is on. Not much though. It is quiet now. I am sure it is busy in the summer. First come first serve. The road to access the park is quiet at night. Virtually no noise since it's a winding, curvey road to Wickenburg. No one bothered our things we left out. One camper even left out an unlocked generator with no issues. We stayed the 14 day limit. There are a few other NFS campgrounds like Lynx Lake but they are closed now. White Spar opened year round. There are nice picnic tables and a fire pit at each site. Pit toilets. Garbage service. The location is ideal for exploring the area. The host on duty while we were here, was pretty much invisible. - blackstoneburro

An older review mentioned theft concerns. We saw several campers leaving their stuff unattended, with no issues. Sites are generally level side to side, but often have minor to moderate slope from front to back. It's a very nice setting, with good hiking trails. Close to town, convenient. Our rate was the winter rate, when the water spigots are turned off. - snowman9000

Great park. Very clean with wide spaces for RV and toad. Plenty of surrounding area to hike or walk the pooch. Close to Walmart, movie theaters and restaurants. Full hook ups 30-50 amps. No pool, restrooms or showers but clean laundry room and library. Sites have individual patios. Need to call ahead for reservations. Good rates. Stayed in a 31' RV for two months. - Mike Mac

Good park if your thinking of seeing Prescott and surrounding areas. Ashpalt streets, gravel sites that were flat and level. Power at each site is 30 or 50 amp, good drinkable water with great pressure and sewer. Office staff was helpful and made check in a breeze. - weighit

The view of the surrounding foothills was outstanding. The site was spacious with a brick patio and picnic table and each site separated by a pretty, white privacy fence with lattice work on top. Lots of trees for shade. There is a bathroom at the office. Otherwise, only one other bathhouse in the park with two stalls and one shower (women) and one stall, one urinal and one shower (men).
We usually search out RV parks that have pickleball courts. This park has 2 but don't be fooled. There is a boatload of full-timers in this park and they have pretty much commandeered the courts. We were told bluntly that we can't play on this day and/or we can't play at these times. The pickleball gods (even non-residents) hog the courts in the early (cooler) hours and you are not asked to play. You can hang your paddle on the queue board all day long but it doesn't mean anything between particular times. You can have the courts later, in the 100+F heat, if you wish. They hold events, "socials (tournaments)," and "ladder day," etc. and they are open only to the regulars. Fortunately for us, there were a couple of really nice guys who stayed around later to play a few games with us in the heat of midday. - Linda dlm

It was a pleasure to stay at the park. The office people were friendly, helpful etc. The only draw back was the Wi-fi; you had to go to a separate building to get it. This is the first park we have been to where there was no Wifi at your site. When we went up just to receive and send email, there were people that were there almost all day, watching movies on their laptop and the other playing games. To me and others in the park felt the same way, VERY INCONSIDERATE of others. The sites were nice and big. Will go back again. - Nanaof6
