Lake Havasu is a mecca for water sports enthusiasts of all ages as well as the retiree/snowbird community. The community of Lake Havasu City offers a multitude of festivals and other events that draw a lot of people to the town. One of the best camping options is the campground at Lake Havasu State Park, which is walking distance to many town amenities and sits right on the lake shore for swimming, boating or paddling.
The campground has sites distributed on a few small loop roads, with many sites backing right on the beach and most having a view of the lake. Sites all have electric and water hookups, so the campground tends to be more popular with RV campers than tent campers. There are boat ramps, a dump station, hiking trails and an interpretive garden of desert plants.
Note: From April 1 through September 30, there is a two night minimum stay for weekend camping, and you must reserve both Friday and Saturday night. For Memorial Day weekend, July 4 weekend, Labor Day weekend and Columbus Day weekend, there is a three night minimum stay for holiday weekend camping, and you must reserve Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights.
