LHC: Not Just a Spring Break Location

Many only know Lake Havasu as a popular spring break location, a site for party loving boys and girls, spotlighted by MTV and the filming location of the movie, Piranha 3D. Lake Havasu City is so much more. Lake Havasu, a favorite winter destination for retirees, offers sunshine, golf courses and water recreation.  Boaters and anglers alike flock to Lake Havasu in all seasons.

Lake Havasu

Lake Havasu is 45-miles long, located on the California and Arizona border. Initially a segment of the Colorado River, the construction of Parker Dam in 1938 created the popular lake. Parker Dam's primary function is to provide reservoir water storage for California and Arizona. Yet, long ago skiers and fishermen discovered other uses for the blue waters of Lake Havasu.
