Riding near Havasu?

Recommended Posts

My group is looking to do a weekend trip in two weeks around Lake Havasu or Parker. We ride with a couple SxS, but will also have a few dirtbike rides. Any recomendations where to camp? Thanks in advance.

If your toys are street legal just stay right on the river in one of the parks and ride from there.

forgot to mention, we have a few 5th wheels and toy haulers so will need to have a decent size campground.

The County camp ground if I remember correctly has the biggest open area, but all of the ones along the strip are good. Maybe  @Yarder can chime in and tell you where they camp in April to do the ride to the desert bar.

That place looks very nice, looking to stay on the Az side though.

Shea road in Parker is a great place and Standard Wash in Havasu has plenty of riding as well.

Pirates Den is on the Arizona side near the Parker Strip. It's below the Parker Dam that separates Lake Havasu from the Strip. It's not bad. If your stuff is street legal you won't have any problems getting to some decent riding areas on the  Arizona side. There are rules in the resort, but not too strictly enforced. Be respectful driving your off-road stuff thru the resort. If your dirt bikes aren't street legal you can come across La Paz County S.O. or DPS. Hook-up's provided, reservations recommended.

Everything's on the Pirates Den web page.

There are several areas right off the Arizona 95 to the east where you can pull into an open area and ride to your hearts content. Huge open flat areas which are BLM with no fees.

When we lived in Havasu we used to park right past the edge of town but not quite to the airport, off of the 95,  and just ride off into the desert.  Never ran out of trails.

There was probably 100 Rvs along there last weekend. Popular place.

If you are talking about feb 14-16 weekend, there was the huge fireworks display and the area was packed!

Forgot to mention  this. We had pulled over just before dark right where Shea rd turns to dirt. A la paz county sheriff stops and checks on us. Super cool guy that was very professional.   He was interested in our trip and gave us some info on other riding areas.

M. Johnson was his name. A credit to his department.
