Crazy Horse Campground located right on the lake in Lake Havasu City, Arizona is the city’s oldest RV Park. It is centrally located to boat and jet ski rentals, and is just a short distance from unique restaurants in the shadow of the historic London Bridge. It is also ideally situated for the planning of memorable and fun filled day trips.
Within sixty miles of the campground is a diverse array of attractions, time capsule towns, natural wonders, and even legendary Route 66. Add another forty or fifty miles and you can visit a pine forested oasis in the desert at Hualapai Mountain Park, the picturesque and fascinating Grand Canyon Caverns, ghost towns, and even a wildlife park.
And spring is the season for a diverse array of events in northwestern Arizona. Tours of the historic El Garces station and hotel, an historic Harvey House in Needles, California are given every Saturday at 11:00 A.M. That adventure begins with a visit to the Needles Regional Museum across from the plaza and hotel.
On the third Saturday afternoon of every month between April and October, the historic business district in Kingman, Arizona is transformed into a southwest version of American Graffitti. Chillin’ on Beale is all about cars, music and savoring craft beer at one of the award winning microbreweries on Beale Street and first rate barbecue or gourmet wood fired pizza at Floyd & Company.
Iconic Route 66 from Topock on the Colorado River to the old mining town of Oatman, and over Sitgreaves Pass to Cool Springs that was built in 1925 is, arguably, one of the most beautiful drives in Arizona. And Oatman with the burros in the streets, eclectic shops, diverse array of restaurants, and Oatman Hotel, the oldest and tallest adobe building in Mohave County is always worthy a day trip.
As added incentive to visit this quirky old west mining town, on March 19, between 1:00 and 3:00, internationally acclaimed author and creator of the Jim Hinckley’s America travel network Jim Hinckley will be signing books at Jack Ass Junction. He will also be answering questions about Route 66, and providing travel planning information with materials from all along the highway.
And if you really feel adventuresome, just over sixty miles from Kingman via Stockton Hill Road there is Grand Canyon West, home of the legendary skywalk, a glass bottomed observation platform built over the Grand Canyon. Along the way is Grand Canyon Western Ranch, the historic 19th century ranch of Tap Duncan, an Arizona pioneer. Now a dude ranch with live buffalo, the ranch hosts an array of activities, and has a superb restaurant in the original ranch house.
Crazy Horse Campground is a perfect family getaway for a weekend or a week. And it is your home away from home for escaping a harsh winter in the north country, or the urban crush of southern California for a memorable vacation.
