Reviewed a dated (2005) military camping guide and then called.
Initial Personal Office visit was unfriendly; no welcome greeting, ~10 minute delay before finding out gate guard was where to get weekly pass for prepaid stay.
Found out no longer part of a military network. Prices higher than San Diego Metro Military Campground prices. Base cost of 2 people/ RV increased with each added individual or vehicle. Reschedule not refund if leave camp early. Bait and switched 2 free beachside sewage pump outs to $10/pumpouts. Despite 24 hour prepaid pumpout at the office, 3 visits to the gate attendent, 2 follow up office visits and 2 office calls, pumpout was delayed 48 hours. Coined Lake Havasewage by my visiting brother.
No enforcement of quiet hours and motorcycle exclusion. More broken than working bathroom urinals, showers and toilets.
Two Gate guards held us up with our weekly pass needlessly ~10 minutes while chatting to visitors in their vehicle without a pass.
Clean Lake Havasu lake beachfront and city
Beach Shade Shelters
Reasonable campground Store prices
Nice public grill area beside pool
Walking distance to London Bridge and California side ferry boat ($2 roundtrip)
The pros, reasonablly priced based on site location, decently stocked general store, laundry facility (24hr), swiming pool, jacuzzi, horseshoe pads, launch ramp (with experienced boaters, this launch ramp can handle 6 launches at one time!), its in the lagoon making for a smooth launch, assigned boat slip (limited), watercraft can beach in the lagoon, thousands of feet of beach, 60+ sites are water front sites (check out google earth), paved roadways and some awesome views of the lake, the sunset view from west end of “L” row is amazing.
The cons, the bathrooms - people forget these are public (all park guest) bathrooms, some use and some abuse. In my line of work as a night club manager (2 of then) the bathroom take a beating more so than any other part of the club. The best thing to do (as I have done) is call the office and report. In some cases the maintnance guy came right out. The electrical, the park is old, I am guessing 40 or more years, electrical needs where not so demanding then (30 amps was plenty), now most rv’s need 50 amp service or more, thats nearly double! Thats a lot of juice for the old wiring, true the park has not quite caught up yet, its getting there. The recently electrical upgraded sites are great and bigger. Upgrades of such are a monumental pain in the kisser though and can be very time consuming and costly (well into the 100k’s) you dont just call APS and I need more electricity. The staff, well over all they have been pretty nice to me and my friend/s. Not one has ever given me a reason to complain. I am NOT one to sit quietly, I definitely speak up and out.
How is management suppose to correct a situtation if its not brought to their attention??
Last, the reviews, I read several, to some extent truth to all.
The name is Crazyhorse Campground, not Crazyhorse Resort, there is quite a difference between a campground and a resort.
At $50 a night to be 40 feet from the water of Lake Havasu, I give 4 stars.
I will book my 10 consecutive Memorial Day weekend stay now.
I have no dog in this race, my own writing
We brought our camper to stay while visiting family in Lake Havasu for Thanksgiving week; everyone is so friendly and courteous here at Crazy Horse! We ended up having a medical emergency with my husband towards the end of our stay, and they were able to accommodate us so we did not need to move spaces to stay an extra couple of days! Thank you for that!!!
We did not use all of the facilities, but what we did see was they have a nice size laundry room, bathroom and free shower stalls, small store, pool and spa and some outdoor games. We were told the pool is heated to about 80*, and the spa is about 98-99*, but we did not get to enjoy either on this trip, maybe next time.
If I could change anything, I think I'd remove the very bright light over the spa and raise the temperature, and make the upper spaces that have full utilities, spaced better as some are smaller than others that should be the same size. We had a 30' camper and seemed to have decent space, but a much larger rig may have felt crowded. I think I'd also add grass in various areas for the many dogs and humans to enjoy besides the dirt and rock. Overall, we had a wonderful stay!
Exploring the History of Arizona's - Colorado River Enjoying world-class water Events, The Havasu Balloon Festival. Join in on the Antique Cars Show or Join the gem and Rock club and venture in the desert looking for gems and rocks while viewing the different cacti. then it was home to the greatest social club in Havasu at the Crazyhorse Campground. there are great dinners and quilts made for the veterans to keep them warm. On every holiday there is a special volunteer group who help make it a better place for all visitors there is an endless list of activities. Such a variety of things to do From Yoga to Swimming in the outside pool and hot tub to 4x4ing in the desert to kayaking down the Colorado River. oh yes, there are great eateries and Restaurants that have great appys nights but the best is the people you meet when your lighting up the fireplace at night or listening to Jam nights.
This is a 40 year old RV Resort/Park that has a great location but unfortunately has not upgraded its washrooms in 40 years. This is sad. The sites are fine with full hook ups, walk to London Bridge, pool ok, has horse shoes, pickle ball. Shuffle board, Marina and boat launch BUT the washrooms are a disaster! Entry doors look like a beaver has been at them, cracked sinks, broken shower stall tiles, shower knobs missing, toilet stalls missing locks, taps missing water strainers so they spray all over, the list goes on and on. If it wasnt for the disastrous washrooms this would be s great place to stay in Havasu. The owners need to wake up and invest some dollars and upgrade these very shoddy washrooms. Yes it is price wise inexpensive, compared to others, but charge more and get the improvements done! We will not stay nor recommemd this RV campground until the washrooms upgraded. The cleaners do their best but they can't improve junk.
