Lake Havasu State Park

About a year ago we came through Lake Havasu and tried boondocking at Craggy Wash. That spot didn’t have strong enough cell signal, so we only stayed in Lake Havasu City long enough for a nap.

After that experience, we knew we’d had to pay to camp in the area, so this year, I booked a spot at Lake Havasu State Park where I knew we’d get cell service.

The park is clean and the spots are well spaced. There’s a great walking path that’s about 1.75 miles long.

Our spot in particular is kind of weird (#4). It’s on the side of the road with a partial water view. Most of the other campsites are normal back-in spots.

AT&T and Verizon are both LTE, and we get 30+ over-the-air HDTV channels. Oh and apparently there are wild pigs here, though we haven’t seen any.

2014 Cost of Camping:
166 night paid camping + $250.00 thru 12/6
173 nights free camping
339 days this year
Total spent on camping this year: $4251.79
Daily average cost of camping: $12.54

    Are they feral pigs or javelinas? Feral pigs can eat through your RV walls, bad piggies!

      Oh wow – they’re feral pigs, not javelinas.

    I think they must have added a tower near Craggy Wash since you were there last. We could see it on top of a hill just down the road and had GREAT Verizon signal.

      Hi Rob, I think we’re actually supposed to park the other way, but I wanted the dinette and the windows on the other side to face the view AND our utilities are on the other side too. So it was better for us to face the wrong way.

      It’s $35/night for water & power.
