We have been going to Lake Havasu for 4 years now. What we enjoy about the area is that it's not an over powering population. It has plenty of amenities but yet doesn't feel like you're crowded and has that small town friendly feeling, yet has a decent sized population. We love that you can go boating, golfing, to the...

We spend three days at Lake Havasu (Campbell Cover RV park) and enjoyed every minute. The walk near the bridge is fabulous. There are some interesting funky shops along the walkway. We had lunch at a wonderful fish and chip shop along the canal. It was too windy to do the boat ride down the river, but we plan to... More

A great place to go for the sunset. There are plenty of water activities although they are best saved for summer and the warmer temperatures

Never having been here before I was amazed at how lovely the river and surrounding town is. Yes very Modern. No not particularly quiet. Yes, Lots of things to do both in and on the water and off it also. Spend at least a weekend and enjoy yourself.

Lake Havasu is a beautiful city in Arizona. The weather was good when we were there, cooling off significantly over night. The sun felt great compared to the snow we were receiving at home! We attended the Hot air balloon festival along with the buses under the bridge and ate at several local restaurants. Did a lot of walking along... More

LOVED THIS LOCATION. It was great for this time of year. before the Spring Breakers get there. Then it becomes a party town.

I visited Lake Havasu during the summer and it was great, it was so warm that we spent all day long swimming and having fun with the SUP boards. That night we didn't set our tents we slept under the stars and woke up with the sunshine. What a great experience!
