The Lynx Lake Loop, Nancy Lake Recreation Area
This state recreation area contains an eight-mile chain of lakes called the Lynx Lake Loop. The Portages are well marked and designated campsites are on the canoe trail. Public-use cabins are also available for rent. The Lynx Lake Loop is an ideal weekend trip although it can be paddled in a full day. A longer trip can be made by continuing south from Lynx Lake to Butterfly and Skeetna Lakes before returning on the same route to rejoin the loop.
For those who prefer river canoeing, there is a put-in via the Little Susitna River at mile 57 of the Parks Highway in Houston. The river is fairly easy to travel, but some canoeing experience is advisable. Travel time on the river is four to five hours. To learn more, use the following contact information.
Canoe rental and shuttle service is available at Nancy Lake from the following.
