Lake Havasu State Park, Arizona…

After leaving Las Vegas on the 4th, we drove south and found ourselves at Lake Havasu State Park, Arizona. We spent a few days here last winter, and it is a lovely park (we are biased though, when it comes to Arizona’s state parks – they always let us camp there, no matter how many kids we have 😉

The kids all have jobs when it comes to setting up camp… Oftentimes they help one another with their jobs –
sometimes they get a little more help than they really need….(or want)

We got the best site in the park; right next to the lake and near a sandy beach. The little girls got out the box of sand toys, and spent their afternoon digging in the sand. Molly was taking her share of sand home with her – I had to take her dress off and turn it upside down to shake the cups and cups of sand out of her pockets.
She can shake the sand out of her sandals by herself…

We all pitch in when it comes to taking care of the house.
When we work, we all work…
So that when it’s time to play, we can all play.
We enjoyed our time at Lake Havasue, and would have liked to spend more than one night there.

But we have places to go and people to meet.
And when it comes to meeting other families that are on the road, you take the opportunity to meet them when it arises – you never know long that chance will be available with everyone so, ummm, mobile!
The next morning, Beth and I (and Caleb), drove up the street a block and got the laundry caught up before meeting up with the 5er and heading to that RV mecca (LOL!), Quartzsite – boondocking heaven…
We were sad to leave the beautiful weather, perfect for a dip in the lake.
But, if YOU happen to be near Lake Havasu, Arizona, be sure to stop by the state park there, preferably in the evening – the sunsets are beautiful!!!
P.S. Just a reminder that this weekend is free entrance into the National Parks that usually charge! On Jan 14, 15, and 16, you can visit these parks for free! A list of the parks that usually have an entrance/usage fee are found here. We will be taking advantage of this free weekend ourselves since our National Parks Pass expired Dec. 31; our tribe will be getting in free at Tuzigoot National Monument and Montezuma’s Castle N.M. here in AZ! ~maybe we’ll see you there! :)

  1. We love AZ state parks also. But did you see where they are discussing doubling the fee? that would make most of them $50 a night. That will not be in our budget.
