We weren't planning on staying the night, we just pulled in to see what it was like for future reference. But after speaking to the very nice ranger we decided to spend the night. She directed us to site #53, which was just long enough for our 42' rig and spacious enough to stow our tow dolly and park our car and have plenty of space left over to comfortably relax in. It also had 50amp service despite the the report at the top of this page that says it doesn't. Not every space does.... I think only a few do, but it is an option if available. The one issue with the asphalt space is that it's not at all level - very high in back / low in front. I had to use 3 jack pads under each front jack to level it, but we finally got it there (the reason for the 9 instead of 10). The park itself is adorable and very well kept - easy to navigate with even our long rig. Most sites have at least a small tree with some shade; ours had a large tree with lots of shade. The recreation area at the lake is also very well maintained, though I imagine it can get quite crowded in peak season due to its smallish size. The boat ramp was busy and looked to be in excellent condition. We will definitely stay here again! We camped at Cattail Cove State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

As mentioned in earlier reviews, the drive into the park is very tight and windy. We had just enough room to comfortably maneuver our 42' coach towing a car on a dolly. I'm not suggesting not to go because of the drive, just be aware that slow is the way to go :)

The road leading to the park has some tight turns, but we had no problem with our 40' motor home, towing our Saturn Vue. We arrived on a Thursday without a reservation and stayed 3 nights in the upper camping area, where there is more space between the sites than in the lower camping area. Site was paved, with picnic table and fire ring. Hookups are water and 30 amp electric, with a dump station. Restrooms/showers were clean. Verizon signal was strong once we got settled into our site (56), but it was non-existent by the ranger station. There is a nice beach area for pets to play, and several hiking trails, although one trail was closed when we were there. We camped at Cattail Cove State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Lake Havasu City is about 15 miles away, where there are many great restaurants and other shopping.

We stayed in two different areas of the park and loved both of them. Sites are large enough for a 34 ft TT, paved, with water and good electric. Good trails to walk the dog including a dog beach. Park was cleaned daily as sites emptied and was very very clean. Road into the park was curvy but easily done with any size rig. Dump station was well positioned with enough room for two at a time. Boat launch and beach had their own facilities. We camped at Cattail Cove State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

We were visiting family in Lake Havasu City only 12 miles away. Plenty of shopping, restaurants, and touristy activities. There are also many choices of off-road activities in the desert nearby. Did find two disc golf course in the area.

Nice park, great hiking all around the park. Most spots are shaded by nice mature trees. All trees are labeled with type so it adds interest to camp sites. Has nice fish cleaning station and clean well maintained bathrooms. Great for dogs. Miles of easy hiking trails and an area where the dogs can play in the lake. Only complaint is that they close both bathrooms from 6-8am for cleaning. They should only close one at a time, and 6-8am is when most people wake up and would like to use the restroom. We camped at Cattail Cove State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

10 miles from the London Bridge. Worth the drive to see it.

$28 per night (this state park had a special from October - December whereby if you stay for seven nights, two of those nights were free making the nightly rate $22) was for a mostly level site surrounded by an area of sand/gravel and beautiful desert vegetation including large oleander bushes, cacti, and other desert trees. Each electric and water has a picnic table and fire ring. There were many Gambel's quails, hummingbirds, and butterflies flitting around the campground. We heard coyotes howling in the distance. Our site had a 360° view of the surrounding valleys and mountains. This campground is located about 15 miles outside of Lake Havasu City where every amenity is available. Lake Havasu offers plenty of outdoor activities including hiking, boating, fishing, and picnicking. AT&T and Verizon service were three - four bars of LTE. There were no over-the-air (OTA) TV stations. We received many radio stations. We camped at Cattail Cove State Park in a Motorhome.

Luckily we picked the best in the area sight unseen. We enjoy State or Fed parks vs. private 'pack' parks. It is without sewer but there is a dump station. I can only give it an 8. Very little light pollution so the stars are magnificent, as is the beach, doggy beach, and boat launch. We will definitely return for a longer stay We camped at Cattail Cove State Park in a Motorhome.

Not really knowing much about this place other than other reviews and tourist pamphlets, we hesitantly booked in advance 4 nights at this State Park. We were not at all sorry. What a beautiful location. Great services and good showers. The hiking along the lake is very nice and the sunsets over the lake are a great way to end the day. The staff was very friendly, which surprised us considering all the Arizona motorists we encountered on the road were all huge jerks. Would give this park 10 out of 10 were it not for the trees. They are awesome for blocking the sun, but terrible for blowing debris all over everything. Be sure to set aside at least 20 minutes for shaking out your patio mat when you leave. We camped at Cattail Cove State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We have been to the campground before and enjoy staying here. The sites are level and the park is kept very clean. You are 15 mins from Lake Havasu, nestled down in a cove. We camped at Cattail Cove State Park in a Motorhome.

This campground was very clean (campsites, restrooms, beaches etc). We were at campsite 4 which was less than 75 yards from the beach. Perfect swim area as well as boat launch. Good area for pets. Cowboy RV mart in Havasu were awesome fixing our stove and working with the warranty. We camped at Cattail Cove State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

What a lovely spot. Our second time overnighting (we make the trek down off I-40 specifically to stay here,) and we still love it. Very well-maintained, good reservation system, nice sites (many with shade, which is amazing in the desert), and a dog beach. We love that feature and stay here because of it--our dog hates when we have to traverse the desert, so the least we can do is provide a swimming opportunity. We'll be back! We camped at Cattail Cove State Park in a Motorhome.

The restrooms/showers were very nice with tile. One-half of the sites were in sun. The beach area was nice and there's a boat ramp. Although our 40' motorhome fit into our site, the majority of sites were much smaller. The sites are also very close to each other unlike most state parks. This is also a park that attracts boaters and fishermen. We were here mid-May and the temperature was 117 degrees! There is only 30 amp available so we could only run one air conditioner which wouldn't catch up with the heat. Because of the 30A and close sites we would not return. We camped at Cattail Cove State Park in a Motorhome.

We liked this park, as we do most Arizona parks. We stayed in the upper loop, with a limited view of the lake, but also VERY quiet and peaceful. The lower loop was full and not really noisy, just a lot of activity. There are two nice hiking trails along and above the lake. The swimming beach is beautiful white sand (something like you'd see in the south of France). Each site has 1-2 shade trees, that allow you to eat lunch outside at your picnic table. Our restroom and showers were very clean, but we didn't use the lower ones where the boaters are. A nice camp host with info about the park and the area. We would stay here again. We camped at Cattail Cove State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very clean and well maintained park. Friendly park hosts. Only 30 amp electric available with voltage running low due to heavy A/C usage on hot weekend. We had to use our Voltage Regulator to keep volts up to a safe level. Sites are spacious and paved. We stayed in the end pull-thru, Site #23. It was huge. VERY dog friendly with a private dog beach. Hiking trails were listed as easy, but I found them challenging in the heat. Looking forward to a return visit. We camped at Cattail Cove State Park in a Motorhome.

Great, peaceful location on Lake Havasu. The park is about 15 miles south of Lake Havasu City, but remote enough to be away from all the ambient light and city noise. Although the RV sites are not waterfront, there's a boat launch and a nice swimming beach immediately adjacent to the campground. There's also a dump station in the park. We camped at Cattail Cove State Park in a Motorhome.
