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.
