On our way to Yuma: Stop Five.
We've camped at Lake Havasu State Park twice before and liked it. It's practically downtown, has sites close to the water, and is just a short kayak paddle from the London Bridge. But the weekend we arrived this time, a big RV/boat show was being held there.
So after Willow Beach Marina, we booked a few days at another Lake Havasu-area state park 20 miles south of town called Cattail Cove. Loved it. That's two stops in a row worth repeating.
Our camping spot was a short walk to the water. Jim did some kayaking, we both did some hiking, and the dogs took advantage of the only dedicated dog beach we've ever seen at a campground.
