Buffalo, New York is cleaning up from a storm that has dumped six feet of snow. The forecast for Thanksgiving morning calls for temperatures hovering around ten degrees. In Minneapolis it doesn’t look like high temperatures will exceed the mid 30s for the foreseeable future. And in Lake Havasu City, Arizona on the Colorado River, the temperature will be a nice pleasant 75 degees over the Thanksgiving weekend.
So, for refugees from the snowy north, Lake Havasu City is a touch of paradise. And Crazy Horse Campground is their home away from home as they bask on the beach.
As our website says, “Lake Havasu’s oldest RV Park and campground is located on the Island just across the London Bridge. Winter guests taking a reprieve from the cold enjoy the park’s close proximity to shopping, restaurants, golf and everything that Lake Havasu has to offer. The campground offers lake access, beach front sites, boat and jet ski rentals and so much more. Crazy Horse has tent camper and RVer amenities alike to make for a comfortable stay. Park models include in-room coffee, microwave and refrigerator for your convenience.”
But there is another reason to consider Crazy Horse Campground as an ideal place to wait for spring. Lake Havasu City is at the heart of a wonderland of diverse attractions and holiday events.
Take a look at the calendar of events held in Lake Havasu City during the months of winter. Golf tournaments, craft fairs, the festival of lights, and concerts hint of the diversity that make the city a destination.
