When To Go

Early Spring – Early Summer & Fall – Lake Havasu is in the Mojave Desert, so it gets very hot in the summer, and is the low season for the area. We recommend going in spring, early summer, and fall as the days will be warm and the nights will be cooler. There will be more activity in the area during these times as well.

The location could not be found.

What To Do

Fishing – Striped and Largemouth Bass as well as Carp are popular catches in Lake Havasu.

Boating – Lake Havasu is directly accessible from the campground and offers great destinations for a day on the lake.
