Our lake offers endless hours of entertainment in the middle of the desert. But there’s more to do here than watersports. Literally thousands upon thousands of acres of desert land surround Lake Havasu City. That means hiking, offroading, and camping for all you “desert dawgs”. Brand new Prevost, Newmars, and Foretravel motorcoaches set you back over $1 million a pop. Who wants to get those dirty? Vintage trailers like Airstream, Shasta, Spartan, and Forester have seen a surge in popularity recently. To celebrate these more modest predecessors to today’s camping trailers, owners travel to our fair city for the Lake Havasu Vintage Trailer Campout 2020.

Lake Havasu Vintage Trailer Campout 2020
Now in its sixth year, the Havasu Vintage Trailer Campout offers camper owners the chance to visit with others and show off what they’ve done to their trailers. This four-day dry-camping event provides outlets for cells phones. You’ll also find restrooms complete with showers on-site. They also provide power for any medical devices, should you need it. Other than that, though, no hook-ups. Bring all materials you need for a comfortable stay with you (food, water, etc.). And, please make sure you clean up after yourself.
Reserve Thursday, January 30th, for set-up only. On Friday, the 31st, campers gather for a meet and greet at 6 pm. Do you have anything you’d like to sell? Bring it with you for the Swap Meet on Saturday (8 am to 12 pm). For dinner Saturday night, provide your best dish for the community potluck at 5 pm.
Don’t have a vintage trailer but still want to see them in person? Organizers invite spectators to the party from 10 am to 3 pm on Friday and 10 am to 2 pm on Saturday. Spectators enter through the designated entryway at the main park entrance off Industrial and London Bridge Rd. Follow the signs to enjoy the view. The park allows leashed pets anywhere but on the white sand beach.
Campers pay a $25 fee per night. Reserve your spot and pay for it when you arrive. Spectators pay just $3 to enter the State Park. If you have any questions, please contact Cherri or Mike Aiken at (360) 708-7495.
