The Arroyo-Camino Interpretive Garden is a small peaceful oasis of plants set along manicured walking paths within Lake Havasu State Park.

The garden puts on display plants that are native to the desert, both around the Colorado River basin and further out as well. The plants include trees, cacti, and shrubs, and they are laid out along a series of flat gravel walking paths. As the area lies in the transition zone between the Mojave and Sonoran Deserts, the gardens have a diverse array of plants on display. Along with these plants, visitors might be able to see the birds, lizards and desert cottontail rabbits that also use the garden for refuge.

Interpretive signs and signage naming many of the plants line the walkways and garden beds. With benches, picnic tables, and plenty of shade beneath the tree coverage, these gardens offer a peaceful refuge within the park. As much of the rest of the state park is built around picnicking and boat access, the Arroyo-Camino Interpretive Garden gives visitors a chance to escape the crowds and activity throughout much of the park.

Visitors can access the garden by parking in a small parking lot opposite the garden entrance. The garden also lies along the Mojave Sunset Trail, where park visitors can make the garden a destination along their hiking route.

The Arroyo-Camino Interpretive Garden is part of the Lake Havasu State Park, and is subject to the open hours and entry fees of the park.
