   Long sandy beaches, inviting blue water and a Turtle Mountains backdrop, Lake Havasu State Park is one of the most popular parks on the Lower Colorado River.
   A land exchange between the Federal Government and the Arizona State Land Department in 1986 defined the borders of Lake Havasu State Park. Compensating the state for land used in the Central Arizona Project, Arizona received about 30,000 acres of land around Lake Havasu City and Pittsburgh Point. Lake Havasu boat ramp After a complicated arrangement of land swaps, Lake Havasu State Park was left with a little more than 10,000 acres. The lower lake unit was used to create Cattail Cove State Park.
   The northern unit, including Winsor Beach, offers facilities geared toward lakeside recreation. Boat launch ramps, hiking trails, picnic grounds and campsites make this state park a favorite desert get-away. The park’s boat-in campsites are the favorite overnight accommodations, with more boat area improvements slated for 2014.
     Here where the Colorado River is halted once again by another dam (Parker Dam), park guests enjoy southwest Arizona's sunshine, a day at the beach, fishing and miles of incredibly blue water.
