We enjoyed our stay and had decent cell service. The hike to Whyte's Beach along the lakeshore is nice. The sites are not level and require some creative leveling techniques (that can be a source of entertainment). We might stay here again if in the area. Very few 50 amp sites, we had a 30 amp and had to watch power use. We camped at Cattail Cove State Park in a Travel Trailer.

When checking in we were advised the fee had just gone up for all state parks. Nice setting, took a little work to get level, clean area and nice staff. Water access, dump station, power and water. no over air TV or WiFi, cell service was good but on CA time. We camped at Cattail Cove State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice state park. Very nice camp hosts (all of them). Beautiful beach, lemon trees and big sites. Check out the hiking trails. We camped at Cattail Cove State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed at Cattail Cove for 3 nights and really enjoyed it. It is well maintained and the staff we very pleasant. Wish there were a few more trees around, though. The restrooms are very clean and the showers are hot with good water pressure. It is on the lake so we were able to place our inflatable kayak right in at the boat dock. There are hiking trails there, as well, that whoever planned and maintains has done an outstanding job! You access them right from the campground. We really enjoyed every hike we did, and we covered them all...some more than once. Thank you for your time and efforts on these!! Much appreciated! We will be back!

Great campground on Lake Havasu. Large overflow area. Numerous hiking trails in desert and along lakeshore. Boat/kayak launch. ATV trails across road from entrance. Wide campsites. We camped here in a 36' Class A. We camped at Cattail Cove State Park in a Motorhome.

Loved the area. Would have given a 10 rating if it had full hookups. There are no sewer hookup at the site but there is a nice dump station within the campground. We had a 50 amp site which are not quite as scenic as those closer to the lake but still nice. Park and facilities extremely clean. Showers were very nice. The water never got hot but sufficiently warm. The campsite we had was not level so come prepared to raise a set of tires. We camped at Cattail Cove State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The campground sits next to Lake Havasu so lots of water sports available. The town Lake Havasu is about 12 miles away and has just about anything one needs, including RV repairs and sales.

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.

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 :)

We stopped here for 2 days to break up our trip from Ca. to Grand Canyon and relax, and see the London Bridge, we had a fairly level pull through site with electric & water, no sewer, but a nice dump station. Sites are wide enough for awnings and slides, there is a picnic table and fire ring.
Bathrooms and showers are clean and functional.
It is roughly 13 miles back into town where there is shopping and the Bridge area.
If you come at this time of year, make very sure your AC is working, as it was 108-110 degrees while we were there.
We would stay here again, in the winter months, never again in August. We camped at Cattail Cove State Park in a Motorhome.

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.

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.

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.

$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.
