RV Park and Campground Briefs
The following stories about RV parks and campgrounds come from the nation’s media.
From The Arizona Republic:
A new group campground has opened at Lynx Lake in Prescott National Forest.
The Eagle Ridge campground has two sites: The Osprey site can accommodate 26-75 people; the Peregrine site is for 15-25 people. Groups may reserve one or both. The sites have water, electricity, picnic shelters and toilets, and comply with the Americans With Disabilities Act.
For the 2011 season, which ends Oct. 30, no camping fee will be charged – only the $10 reservation fee. Campers will have to pay a day-use fee of $5 per vehicle. By comparison, a single site at nearby Hilltop and Lynx Lake campgrounds costs $18 per night.
Lynx Lake is a popular fishing reservoir. It’s stocked with rainbow trout, and also holds largemouth bass and crappie. There’s a boat ramp, and boats with 10-horsepower motors or less are allowed, as are canoes, kayaks, paddleboats and sailboats. An easy, two-mile trail rings the lake, and other nearby trails are good for hikers and mountain bikers. A private operator at the north end of the lake has boat rentals, a general store and a restaurant.
