Lake Havasu State Park
Copyright: - Arizona State Parks
Lake Havasu State Park
Description - On Lake Havasu, water recreation is practiced by the devoted all year long. A unique feature of this exceptional park is that you can travel to 150 boat-access only campsites along the shore of Lake Havasu between Cattail Cove and Windsor Beach. The scenic shoreline of Lake Havasu State Park is an ideal place to enjoy beautiful beaches, nature trails, boat ramps and campsites.

Lake Havasu State Park has two distinct units, Windsor Beach and Cattail Cove. Windsor Beach is a wonderfully developed area in Lake Havasu City just north of the famed London Bridge. (London Bridge was dismantled at its original site in England and rebuilt in Arizona by developer Robert McCulloch in 1971) Windsor Beach is popular for day use, camping and launching all varieties of watercraft. The park offers 75 drive-in campsites plus 55 boat-in sites. The restrooms and showers are handicapped accessible.

Recreation - Recreational opportunities offered at the State Park include camping, hiking, rock hounding, picnicking, fishing, boating, and water skiing (a public boat launch ramp is available).

Climate - The climate of Arizona varies greatly with elevation. The low elevations experience a desert climate. Lake Havasu has a low elevation of approximately 480 ft. During the summer months, expect very hot temperatures with afternoon thunderstorms possible especially in July and August. Daytime high temperatures can exceed 115 degrees. Winter brings moderate temperatures to the low elevations, with warm days and cool to cold nights. Winter is a good time to experience these normally snow free areas. Fall and spring are transitional periods and can also be nice times to visit these desert regions. Be prepared for cool temperatures at higher elevations and dress in layers for your travels in this state of varying climates.

Location - Lake Havasu State Park is located in western Arizona along the California border. The park can be reached by traveling 10 miles south from Lake Havasu City on State Highway 95.

Report: We really enjoyed our stay in Lake Havasu City. The toughest part was the heat, but the beautiful lake makes up for it (you just stay in the water when you're out on the lake - boating or fishing). The best place to eat that we found in town was Mudshark's - a pizza place with their own microbrewery (my husband loved their Hefeweizen). The biggest landmark in town is the London Bridge (yes, the one that was 'falling down.' It's quite secure now, and is the focal point of the city. We rented a beautiful 3bd/2ba house in a very nice neighorhood, away from the hustle/bustle, but close enough to get to everything. Next year, we'll probably lease for the snowbird season. We sincerely hope you enjoy your time there as much as we did (and will AGAIN!) Best Regards, Martha and Jeff Thompson Detroit, Michigan
