Probably the largest RV park in the area when it comes to site volume. The campground roads need repair and are very narrow and confusing to navigate. Bigger RVs might find it challenging to maneuver on booked weekends. Sites that are close to water do not have sewer hookups. The spots are all dirt.

  • Expensive
  • Tight spots, limited hookups
  • Run-down common areas, not maintained
  • Dirty
  • Loud
  • Overcrowded

Tips to Get to Lake Havasu

Coming from the Phoenix area to spend the weekend

Be prepared for a long stretch of nothing for awhile once you get out of the Valley. Embrace the road trip mindset and just cruise. Enjoy the scenery and watch out for tumbleweeds or roadrunners! Make sure your fuel tank is full and your food is packed, as there is a stretch from Tolleson to Quartzsite that is mostly a stretch of road going on and on!

INSIDER TIP: the GPS might want to take you to exit on Vicksburg Rd; keep on driving and take the Quartzsite exit onto 95 toward Lake Havasu City instead! It’s a better route when traveling with a bigger rig. As you get closer to Quartzsite, you will start noticing RV parks and boondocking RVs. This is the town to refuel, use the rest room, stretch your legs and to purchase anything you might still need until you get to Lake Havasu City. After Quartzsite, the road gets a bit hilly and rolling, so just slow down and cruise.

Because of the reduced speed it might feel like it’s taking a long time to get to your destination, and you might even get some “Are we there yet?” from the younger travel companions.

Visiting from California

There are plenty of folks who come and enjoy the lake by hauling up their boat to the CA side of the lake and then docking on and visiting the AZ side to eat out, golf etc. There are also folks who keep their RV in storage on have a full-time spot for their rig and only drive up to visit for the weekend or for a season.

Other out-of-state visitors

Keep in mind that in AZ, the summer rates are lower because it is very hot; likewise, the winter spots might be filled up fast so make sure you book as early as possible. Several resorts are booked for months into this year already due to “snowbirds” who spend their winters in the more temperate areas, such as Lake Havasu. This also leads to an increase of out-of-state visitors when it comes to tourism and various activities, so please plan accordingly.

Once you arrive in Lake Havasu City, where should you stay with your RV? The list below should help you make an informed decision. By the way, should you stay at a park that requires you to cross the London Bridge onto the island, just take a deep breath, check your RV height and width clearance and take it easy! You will be ok! Most drivers are understanding and make room, if needed.
