Place to Boondock In Lake Havasu

Is there anywhere to Boondock in Lk Havasu without going to far offroad? Just want to spend a day or two on our way to Nevada.

South of Lake Havasu City on 95 are about 15 different open spots where you will routinely see 1-10 RV's boon-docking. Some are right off the road others you can travel back a way's. Just keep your eyes open and you will see them, you could also use google earth to narrow down a few choice selections.

Just FYI Cattail cove state park is cheap and a great place to stay if you want some elec & water.

Good Luck

Thanks Steven, Cattail Cove sounds good. Do you happen to know if we could fit in with a 43 ft coach? How wide are the roads, etc.

For info on Cattail Cove, got to azstateparks.gov. Info above is correct, many rv's boondocking just south of LHC on Highway 95. Also, there are state parks River Island and Buckskin Mountain State Park between Parker and LHC. We are in our third season as a volunteer for Buckskin. Beautiful area here, we love it!!!

Craggy Wash, North of LHC up near the airport is a favorite boondocking spot. You can get any sized rig in there. Also, south of LHC, about 3 miles south of Sara Park, a place called Standard Wash will hold lots of RV's.

No problem, we are 39 and navigated with ease, there were several 42's in the pull-throughs.

Just FYI they only have a few 50 amp hook-ups the rest are 30 amps, which should be fine unless you are going in the middle of summer

The campground at Cattail Cove has plenty of room for any size coach.
See: Arizona State Parks: Cattail Cove: Home, or do a web search for: "Cattail Cove State Park, AZ".

Thanks for the great info. We're headed there Feb 23rd. Nice to see we have many options. May try a AZ state park, as we have not been to one yet.

Been to both Cattail and Buckskin and I would choose Buckskin. Not as sloped and lots of trees.
If you go just North of the airport in Havasu, you will find a road on the east side of the highway to Craggy Wash. You used to be able to camp near the highway but now you have to go about 1/2 mile on a dirt road to get to camping spots. We were warned not to camp there due to the high number of homeless staying in tents and old cars. People told us things can disappear there. We checked it out and there were a lot of homeless there. That does not mean they are bad so it's up to the individual to decide if they are comfortable in that scenario.

A little further north than Craggy Wash is a 14 day area that has a camp host. He told me he has left his chairs, BBQ, etc. and gone for several days without anything going missing. It's not as attractive as Craggy Wash though.

There are 3 places to camp "on the island".
The Crazy Horse Campground, ($35 - $50 a night),
The Islander Resort ($49 and up),
The Beach Comber Resort, ($52)

Unfortunately they're all above my "pay grade" .
