Sara Park (Map)
7260 Sara Parkway
Lake Havasu City, AZ 86406
We are returning to Havasu! A scenic drive, awesome views and fun trail…and some good local beer enticed us back to this venue. Sara Park has a BMX track, baseball fields and plenty of other goodness for the whole family. Be sure to visit the lake. It is amazingly clear and HUGE. We will be staging out of the Rodeo grounds and we’ll have plenty of room for campers/RV’s etc.
RVs are 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. Review our site layout for where to setup.
Tent camping is ok at the Rodeo Grounds only (dirt lot).
