Prescott Lakes

Though known for its cowboy past, its Whiskey Row, and loads of colleges, Prescott is not always mentioned as a lake destination. Don’t be fooled though. Prescott has many lakes within 15 minutes of its downtown area for fishing, kayaking, hiking, and relaxation. The main three are Watson Lake, Goldwater Lake, and Lynx Lake. All of these lakes prohibit swimming but make up for it in recreation activities. Some include amenities such as campgrounds, kayak rental stores, horse shoe pits, extensive hiking trails, and grills for those family get-togethers. For more information, check out our individual articles to find out which lake is perfect for your next summer adventure!
