Easy access, and wide open

60’s-70’s during the day, high 30’s to 50 at night. Can be windy. A lot of campers, but there’s plenty of room. Zero amenities, and the desert is fragile, so you must be prepared to pack EVERYTHING out.

Quiet campground not too far from Lake Havasu

Got to this campground because lake havasu was full. It’s about 20 minutes from Lake Havasu city and I liked how it’s not so crowded compared to there. There’s a nice beach area and bathrooms/showers were clean!

Nice Location - Clean Campsites

After driving through Havasu City this was a welcome oasis from the traffic and strip malls. The campground is on a slope so bring your leveling skills. The trees here are well established & provide lots of natural shade. There are even citrus trees with fruit that is almost ready to pick.…

Liked this spot

Loved the filtered water for filling our water containers, easily accessible dumps, dog beach, cleanliness and quietness of the campsite. Quietness of the campsite is really important for us as our dogs our sensitive to noise and bark whenever they hear something. Only downfall was the campsite was…

beautiful hidden gem

it’s a beautiful site- peaceful, open, easy to use. the park filled up during the weekend, was very open on weekdays. the views are amazing, it is right at the lake. there is a $2 ferry ride to the havasu city across the lake with restaurants. it was interesting sighting wild donkeys .

Drove in and drove out. There were a couple RVs which looked broken down and a lot of trash. Did not feel safe. Left to try Cattail Cove, which is 10 minutes away.

Nice place

Sites are really close to each other and we went when it was too hot! Our fault so definitely wouldn’t recommend in a tent. It was still in the 90’s at night and a storm came through so that helped provide some relief. Bathrooms and showers feel like a sauna but still feels good to clean up even if…

White Sandy Beach in Arizona - Truly!

We have camped at Cattail Cove just South of Havasu City in Arizona a couple of times.  We love the white sandy beach and clear water.  Campsites and bathrooms are clean.  We rented the sites near the beach and enjoyed walking the beach under the stars and going kayaking during the day.

A nice Lakeside campground

We stayed just one night at this very nice lakeside campground. Temps were triple digits, so the lake was a great way to cool off. Sites had water and electric. They were fairly close together, but had a picnic table a small tree, and ours was a pull-through. The camp store had ice and very…

Free RVing

Can’t really complain when something is free... but along this road you have so many places to Pull in and pull Over for a night or two. This isn’t a hidden gem, a lot of ATVs and dirt bikes are out here and it’s crowded at more spots more than others but overall it’s a cool place to camp out if…

Easy off, easy on.

I stopped at Havasu BLM on a whim, and I don’t regret it! This is an old gravel quart, and it looks like it. That said there are BIG Class A coaches up here too. Lots of room, some fire rings but stones scattered everywhere to create your own if needed. 6.5 miles to Lake Havasu City make for a…

Nice Sandy beach

This is another Arizona state park on Lake Havasu. About 20 miles south of Havasu City. Electric & water, dump site. Cellular is not as good here as Lake Havasu State Park, and I am an AT&T user, 2 bars.... The trees in this park are specimens, and are labeled on a ground stake. They were…
