What happened to the nice restrooms described in earlier reviews? The one by the launch ramp was gone. Likewise for the one by site 45. The restroom by site 5,was fenced off. What are the plans for Restroom facilities???

The park in Havasu mostly caters to boating. It has a small desert trail, and you can walk through it all the way to the bridge. However there is not much past that.

Lake Havasu State Park was one of the most beautiful sites on our 20+ stop trip. About the only thing that could have made this spot any better, would have been WiFi, on-site Sewage Dump and cable TV hook-ups. It was close to everything, had...More

Some people say the best place to watch sunset is London bridge. But I love this park. Very spacious parking spaces and we walked along the river until the sun set. quiet and peaceful. You can see the outlines of the faraway mountains....very beautiful

We moved to Lake Havasu 21/2 years ago, and I can tell you that the state park, the city, the whole area is definitely not washed up. It’s truly, thankfully not Las Vegas, but there is a smaller casino across the lake in California. If...More

The mountains surrounding the lake are very pretty but if you are considering driving for the day like we did - skip it. The town has a washed up feel to it and London Bridge is a let down. Been there, done that, won’t come...More

Not the right altitude for those. Lots to the south of us down by Quartzsite or on the way to Yuma

Most of the party people are in the channel. They don't pay to stay at the park. You are good.

Hours of businesses around Christmas (1 Reply)
We’ll be in Lake Havasu for the first time in December, but unfortunately will only be there from late afternoon on the 24th until lunchtime on the 26th. Should we assume that pretty much all the shops and restaurants around the London Bridge or uptown will be closed Christmas Eve and Christmas Day? If you have any suggestions for restaurants that might be open for us to go to on these dates please let me know. I am also trying to find out if Lake Havasu State Park, Cattail Cove State...More

I live here in Havasu and although I can't give you all the information you're looking for, there's always the Golden Corral buffet. (1550-s-palo-verde-blvd 928-680-6509) They serve Christmas Dinner. The Black Bear Diner at 1900 McCulloch downtown Havasu, is also open on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. (I just called them) Their number is: 928-855-2013 should you have any questions. I've done some research myself in trying to find a place to eat on Christmas. I know from experience that both...More

Is this a reasonable itinerary for Grand Canyon, et. al? (14 Replies)
Hi, everyone. Finally going to see the Grand Canyon in early May. Taking a week in a campervan doing a big loop that starts and ends in Las Vegas. The more I research, the more I am afraid to commit to almost ANYTHING because there seems to be way more to see and do than I could possibly do in one week. I don't expect to return to the area, so I don't want to feel like I missed something by going too quickly. How does this look: Day 1: load up the van, swing by Hoover Dam for a couple...More

I think you need to look at distances and time involved in some of your adventure. Yes, too ambitious. Joshua Tree NP is 4 hours from Hoover Dam. Lake Havasu SP is 3 hours from there. Where are you going to camp in Coconino NF? It is a very large area. It does allow dispersed camping with no services. You will have to find a place to camp off of a paved road as your rental contract will prohibit dirt roads. Not sure where such a place might be. You will find part of one day at Sedona not...More
