Lynx Lake In Arizona Is Almost Too Beautiful To Be Real

Our state might not have any “real” beaches, but there are plenty of opportunities to take a dip. Lynx Lake in Arizona is almost too beautiful to be real. Lynx Lake is a pristine oasis within Prescott National Forest, and it’s widely regarded to have some of the clearest water in Arizona. The next time you want to get out and go swimming, you need to head to this gorgeous clear lake with the whole family.

Lynx Lake in Arizona

February 05, 2021

Are there a lot of lakes in Arizona?

Yes! There are 128 lakes, and 5 major rivers, in the state of Arizona. But there are lots of man made lakes, too. In the Phoenix area, you’ll come across somewhere between 900 to 1400 man made lakes to visit. These reservoirs are also great places to go and visit, and play in the water.

How how hot does it get in Arizona?

Really hot. Summers in Arizona are hot and dry, and temperatures can average between 90 degrees Fahrenheit and a sweltering 120 degrees Fahrenheit. And the southern desert can occasionally shoot up and over 125 degrees Fahrenheit. This is a state where you don’t want to be caught out without a good source of water at all times!

What are some of the best state parks in Arizona?

Arizona has some pretty spectacular state parks. Red Rock State Park is one of our very favorites; here you’ll get an up-close look at the iconic red landscape that The Copper State is known for. The park covers 286 acres of hills, buttes, meadows, and the flowing Oak Creek. It is so stunningly beautiful, it doesn’t look real (but luckily for us, it is!).
