The beach, boat ramp, and 61 campsites at Cattail Cove State Park offer a broad spectrum of activities for all to enjoy. Whether you're interested in swimming, fishing or just lounging and relaxing, Cattail Cove State Park offers you and your family a chance to get away and enjoy tranquility along Lake Havasu. The 2,000-acre park has been operated by the Arizona State Parks Board since 1970. Lake Havasu was formed when the Colorado River was dammed near Parker. The 45-mile long lake creates a haven for all kinds of water sports. Fish for largemouth and striped bass, channel & flathead catfish, bluegill and crappie. Boat on the blue waters, sail into quiet coves, or water ski or jet ski out on the open lake. If campgrounds are not your style and you have your own boat, you can motor out to one of the 28 campsites along the water's edge. You can also rent boats and campsites with trailers at Sandpoint Marina and RV Park, as well as have dinner at Sandpoint's cafe. The area surrounding the park is also a rock hound's paradise. Volcanic rock, geodes, jaspers, obsidian, turquoise and agate can be found outside Lake Havasu City.

It was easy hiking with beautiful lake views

Loved this hike, especially the pit stop at Whyte’s Retreat, which has a lovely beach, picnic tables and a clean outhouse! Great swimming spot if you hike later in the day. We usually do this hike first thing in the morning and make Whyte’s Retreat our breakfast stop. Beautiful lake views, interesting rock formations in the narrow parts of the wash, and a few barrel cacti further on alongside the trail.

This trail is located south of Lake Havasu City.

This trail is not by Salome. It is south of Lake Havasu City

This is a nice day hike. There is some elevation gain, and not much shade, but nice views of the lake. Two or three waterfall scrambles that were not difficult.
