Lake Havasu is located in Mojave County, Arizona and was originally established as a rest camp for WWII Air Corp personnel. Lake Havasu City was established in 1964 as a planned community by Robert McCullah who had purchased 3,500 acres along the lake front. The city was incorporated in 1978 and has blossomed into a very desirable vacation destination since. The city boasts several outstanding Lake Havasu RV Parks.
The creation of the lake was the result of the Parker Dam being built in 1938 on the Colorado River. The dam was one of three built during the 1930’s and 40’s along the southern portion of the river. The others are the Davis dam and Hoover dam.
