Latest Briefs for RV Parks and Campgrounds
From the News-Herald, Lake Havasu City:
Arizona State Parks (ASP) officials unveiled conceptual drawings Wednesday night (Aug. 21) to Lake Havasu Marine Association of what is to come at Contact Point.
“We are wanting to manage this Lake a little better, there’s a lot of congestion,” said ASP executive director Bryan Martyn. “We want to move some of that traffic down south.”
The proposed project is earmarked for 40-acres of ASP land that is nestled next to the existing Water Safety Center.
Artist-renderings of the proposed project show a new marina, boat storage lots and parking.
Wednesday, Martyn said the proposed project boasts two boat launch ramp sites with a combined 12 lanes. Other amenities include, bathrooms, trails, fishing nodes and camping.
“It will be what you would expect at an Arizona state park,” Martyn said.
Calling Lake Havasu State Park an “economic driver for this community,” Martyn said the three goals of ASP are continuing to be a resource protection agency; providing public access to the agency’s resources; and continuing on as an economic driver.
Martyn noted the ASP state parks system to round up an estimated $266 million to rural Arizona.
“You will continue to see good things at Arizona State Parks,” he said.
