Lake Havasu


Lake Havasu is a popular destination during the cooler months for van lifers and RV dwellers. You will find plenty of nomads boondocking on the BLM lands just outside the city limits. The city offers a wide variety of adventures you can take; especially if you like being on the water.


Lake Havasu is a great place to visit that offers endless water sports, restaurants, and other adventures.

The city has all the amenities you would expect in a city of 60k people; grocery stores, gyms, restaurants, gas, RV resorts, and much more. There is also a great aquatic and community center. 

What I enjoy the best about Lake Havasu is its laid back vibes during the winter months. 


There is plenty of hiking trails around Lake Havasu for you to explore. A few of my favorites include:

  • SARA Crack Trail (Moderate 3.5 Miles)
  • Sunset Trail to London Bridge (Easy 4 Miles)
  • Lizard Peak Trail (Moderate 2 miles)
