Balloon festival

We've stayed here several times for the balloon festival. The restrooms have showers in this part of the park. It is dry camping, but they have a dump. Not all of the spots are level.

The resort is very clean. Staff friendly. Their overflow is a lakefront gravel parking lot. Very nice views, but 65.00 per night for no services at all is a little high. Still, I would come back for the space and views.

Not a place for the night

Super loud road noise and there’s only wifi in the ‘community center.’

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.

A Beautiful Spot on the Lake

We discided to stop in Lake Havasu for the evening and needed a place, we found Crazy Horse and were blown away with the spot! It was a little pricey but it was last min and we were chasing the sun... so we just did it. It was so nice sitting by the lake and enjoying the beautiful evening. Waking…

Nice BLM

You can stop earlier than this just be cautious about the no camping signs. I went back to the empty tanks area and then went in from there. You can get stuck in some sand but if you stay in more gravel area you should be fine. Did see some coyotes so be careful with small animals during the night.…

Right in town but the view helps you forget that.

I didn't have reservations and the campground was full when I got here. But they have an camping overflow lot. For $25 a day you can park right at the beach. No hook ups but there is a bath and shower house, dump station and potable water available.

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!
