Is anyone boondocking in or near Lake Havasu now or have you ever? I heard about a place to boondock but forgot the name. I want to get as close to the city as possible . . . . hoping to make it to the pyrotechnics convention to see all the fireworks and for the 1st Annual Mardi Gras. Thanks for the info!!

I haven't stayed there, but a week ago I drove by the BLM land north of the airport where several were camped. That is walking distance to the shopping center part of Lake Havasu.

We've stayed at the BLM area south of town on the east side of AZ-95. It's about 5 miles from the Basha's.

The area north of Havasu is Craggy Wash. The road in to this area is right at the end of the airport runway. It is a single road in, and as the name implies, is located in a wash. We checked it out a couple of days ago and thought it was getting crowded, but tastes vary there and some would say there is plenty of room.

Craggy Wash is at the north end of town, and while it is convenient to the Wal-Mart, it is *about* 15 miles from Sara Park, which is at the south end of town.

There are some BLM areas starting right across the highway from Sara Park, but those were already starting to fill when we went by there a couple of days ago.

There are a couple of $20-a-night state park campground with hookups to the south of Lake Havasu City, but those looked pretty full also.

Finally, there is an area known as The Steps about 10 miles south of Sara Park where people camp. It is an old mine tailings area, but has more than enough room for lots of rigs. This is located somewhere around milepost 165, where the large powerlines cross the highway. That's where we'll be heading later today.

I found Craggy Wash to be much bigger than it appeared from the outside. It goes way back.

At first, I was a little nervous pulling up a dirt road at night with a 35' pulling the Jeep. Turned out that there was plenty of room to turn around and I never had to unhook.

Craggy wash was really nice. We found a spot WAY in the back, almost as far back as you can go - over 3 miles - that someone had marked with a white cowboy hat and some clothing to look like a person. It was secluded from the main road and we built a HUGE fire pit and had a wonderful time there. Thanks for all the info! FYI - there is a boondocking area behind the RV sales in the entrance to the Blue Water Casino, another across from the racetrack (check this one out before driving your rig in - there are a couple of entrances and only one can handle a motorhome), and one just south of the racetrack on the eastern side. Also - if you go up 95 to I-40, go west and get off at the first exit, then go south, there is a huge area there for boondocking and 4-wheeling.
