Eagle Ridge Group Campground


Eagle Ridge Group Campground is in a ponderosa pine setting in Lynx Lake Recreation Area. Within 1/4 mile of the group campground, Lynx Lake is a popular fishing area accessible by car or by foot.  The lake has a boat ramp, and boats with under 10 HP motors are allowed.  Visitors can rent canoes, kayaks, and paddle boats at Lynx Lake Marina. Trails in the recreation area allow for hiking and mountain bicycling, and there are trails nearby that also allow horses and others for motorcycles and OHVs.

A private concession at the north end of the lake offers boat rentals, a store, firewood, and a restaurant.
