  • Nice park on the Colorado River. Hiking trails are well-marked and provide nice views of the river. Beach area has several picnic tables and is very clean.

  • Definitely a Favorite spot for our family. So glad we discovered this. There is something for every interest. Sit in the campground, or sit on the beach, or be on the water or in the water, or go for a hike, or challenge yourself with a run up the 1 mi road in. The staff is Amazing. The grounds are so well maintained. They did more trail markings since our last time here in November 2021 to this trip March 2022. Lake Havasu is a short drive or boat ride away. The bathrooms and showers are super clean. We need to get here more often. Just Love it here.
  • We LOVE hiking at Cattail Cove State Park near Lake Havasu City AZ! We travel here every winter and always spend a day hiking these trails near the water! There are several trail paths for different levels of hiking! The trail starts out easy and follows the edge of the water, you can cut back into the mountains for more difficulty or simply turn around and stay along the water for an easier hike on the way back! Gorgeous views!
  • This was one of the nicest state campgrounds we have stayed at. So nice they are booked a year in advance. Great beach for kids and also one for the dogs. Super clean grounds and facilities. Highly recommend it. They are adding more sites in the next year or two. Awesome sunsets
  • Decided to stop by Cattail Cove State leaving Havasu. One of the nicest state run parks in Arizona. Nice and Easy Beach access. Has a few Hiking Trails. Well worth the hike for overlooks of the Colorado River flowing downstream. Whyte's Retreat is my favorite trail since you have a view of Parker Dam in the distance and a secluded small beach at the end of the hike
  • Clean with obvious attention to site details. Shower and bathrooms are dated but clean and functional...I'd like to see the dog beach improved with nice sand like the "people-side'. Almost everyone there had pups so a dog park area would be nice. But the facilities that are there are quite clean and functional. Very quiet at night. Rangers were very nice too. Launch ramp was also quite nice. Clean and great set-up.
