By Greg Moberly, Today's News-Herald, Published March 10, 2013
Friday’s stormy conditions gave way to a sunny, cool Saturday morning, which was ideal for the nearly 100 people that flocked to the Seventh Annual Geocache Desert Bash. Many winter visitors, a few younger individuals and a couple families with young children joined in on the fun Saturday [March 9, 2013] at Cattail Cove State Park. Although they weren’t in competition with each other, participants appeared anxious to conduct their treasure hunt using handheld Global Positioning Systems.
“It’s a beautiful morning for it,” said Gary Peaslee, Park Manager at Cattail Cove, south of Lake Havasu City off of State Route 95. “It’s a lot of fun.” Read complete story at Today's News-Herald website

Cattail Cove State Park offers easy access to the Colorado River, with a great campground.
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.
