Crazy Horse Campground and RV Park on the shore of Lake Havasu is more than just a place to camp for a day or two. With lake access, beach front sites, boat and jet ski rentals, a fully stocked general store, and a wide array of amenities, we are a premier destination in northwest Arizona. And as the heart of Lake Havasu City is just a short distance away, we are the perfect home way from home.
But our lakeside paradise is also at the heart of an amazing array of day trip adventures. There are hundreds of miles of off roading trails, hiking trails and mountain bike trails located within a radius of less than 75 miles.
And if you are a road trip enthusiast iconic Route 66 is just a few miles away. So, it should come as no surprise that on the evening of May 27 in Kingman, Arizona, sixty miles east of Lake Havasu City, the official National Road Trip Day proclamation will be the focal party of a block party on Route 66 in the historic business district.
Route 66 in the modern era is ideally suited for day trip adventures, especially in western Arizona with more than 150 scenic, picturesque uniterrupted miles of this storied highway. And on Memorial day weekend, the highway is being transformed into a living time capsule courtesy the National Road Trip Day proclamation.
On Saturday the 28th, local car clubs will be cruising to Seligman with stops at iconic and historic locations along the way. Incentive for the drive is The Seligman Chamber of Commerce hosted town wide Seligman treasure hunt. This will enhance a fascinating exploration of the historic railroad town turned destination for legions of international Route 66 enthusiasts.
And if you want something a bit closer to your home away from home, the Bill Williams Wildlife Refuge located near Parker is a true desert oasis. It has been recognized by the National Audubon Society and The American Bird Conservancy as oneof the most important birding areas on the lower Colorado River.
To beat the heat consider Hualapai Mountain Park with elevations of 6300 feet to 8240 feet that is located a short 12 senic miles south of Kingman. The pine forested park is laced with miles of scenic trails and off roading opportunities. As a bonus the rustic Hualapai Mountain Lodge offers superb dining with stunning views.
And if you prefer that your adventure include something more exotic, a centuries old tangible link to American Indian heritage in the form of a geoglyph called the Topock Maze is less than an hour away. A similar treasure is located an hour to the south near Blythe, California.
The Blythe Intaglios are a group of giant figures that predate Spanish exploration of the region by centuries. They are a rare remnant of more than 300 intaglios located in the desert southwest.
Summer, spring, winter or fall, Crazy Horse Campground & RV Park is your destination for a weekend, a week or month of adventures. Come for a visit and discover why we are one of the top rated RV parks in northwest Arizona.
