GENERAL INFORMATION:
We are venturing out to new parts of the state and Lake Havasu is about as far as we can venture.  The drive is scenic, and views of the Lake and the friendly people in town will give you plenty of reason to spend some time here.  Not to mention that Sara Park has a BMX track, baseball fields and plenty of other goodness for the whole family…oh and the lake…you GOTTA check out this lake.  It is amazingly clear and HUGE.  We will be staging out of the Rodeo grounds (pending) and will have plenty of room for campers/RV’s etc.

DIRECTIONS/CAMPING:
RV is allowed
–  (no hookups) will be available at this new venue Thursday until Sunday am - only issue is we may need you to move, as we will not have anyone available to tell you where to camp at the Rodeo Grounds till Friday afternoon.
Tent camping is ok at the Rodeo Grounds only (dirt lot).
