Boat Ramp & Parking Lot Construction Notice
The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) and US Army Corps of Engineers are assisting Arizona State Parks (ASP) with a park enhancement project at Windsor Beach in Lake Havasu State Park, Mohave County, Arizona. Due to an increase in park use, there is an increasing need for improved recreational facilities at Lake Havasu State Park and Windsor Beach. This project will construct a new boat launch area for oversized boats, a boat staging area, additional parking facilities for larger vehicles, a new park exit, and a beach area along the London Bridge Channel with upgraded multi-use pathway and lighting throughout. Construction start date is anticipated to begin in 2014, avoid the peak visitation months, and last approximately 3 months. During construction, Lake Havasu State Park will remain open to the public, but periodic restrictions may be required at individual facilities as project elements are constructed. The park enhancement project is funded with ASP funds and Land and Water Conservation funds administered by the National Park Service. This notice serves as your invitation to review the proposed project based on the information outlined above. If you have any specific concerns or suggestions pertaining to this specific proposed project, please let us know. Download Construction Information Postcard ( 283 KB PDF)

Lake Havasu State Park offers many water recreation activities. Located within Lake Havasu City, it's a great place to spend the day.
The scenic shoreline of Lake Havasu State Park is an ideal place to enjoy beautiful beaches, nature trails, boat ramps, and convenient campsites. This spot is truly a watersport haven located near the famous London Bridge of Lake Havasu City.
The park offers 3 boat ramps, 47 campsites, a special events area (not available on holiday weekends), picnic area, and beach area. The Mohave Sunset Trail (1.75 miles) winds its way through the lowland desert and along the shoreline.
