The park offers 75 drive-in campsites plus 55 boat-in sites. The restrooms and showers are handicapped accessible.

Lake Havasu State Park is located in western Arizona along the California border. The park can be reached by traveling 10 miles south from Lake Havasu City on State Highway 95.

The climate of Arizona varies greatly with elevation. The low elevations experience a desert climate. Lake Havasu has a low elevation of approximately 480 ft. During the summer months, expect very hot temperatures with afternoon thunderstorms possible especially in July and August. Daytime high temperatures can exceed 115 degrees. Winter brings moderate temperatures to the low elevations, with warm days and cool to cold nights. Winter is a good time to experience these normally snow free areas. Fall and spring are transitional periods and can also be nice times to visit these desert regions. Be prepared for cool temperatures at higher elevations and dress in layers for your travels in this state of varying climates.
