    Cattail Cove: Whyte's Trail

    by Basaic Updated Feb 28, 2009

    Whyte's Trail
    4 more images

    Whyte's Trail is 1.5 miles each way and follows the shoreline of Lake Havasu, providing an excellent view of the lower portion of the Colorado River, the Whitsett Pumping Station and Parker Dam. The shoreline portion of the trail ends at Whytes Retreat (called Dog Beach by some), one of the boat-in campsites. The trail is very short "as the crow flies" but since it follows the coves and inlets it seemed longer. The views along the way are spectacular. There is also the McKinney Loop portion of the trail which returns to Cattail Cove through low desert hills and a shallow gorge with bluffs on both sides. To reach the trail follow the entrance road to the boat launch ramp. The entrance is next to the boat ramp.

    Equipment: Good walking shoes, plenty of water, sunscreen, a hat, weather appropriate clothing. Mayve a snack.

    World Final Jet Ski Races

    Team Singha Thailand

    Annually the World Final Jetski Races are held at Lake Havasu. Usually the second week in October, racers from all over the world Thailand to Kuwait, Belguim to DownUnder gather to determine who is the fastest man, woman and youth on water. As a spectator, the freestylers are the most fun to watch, but the racers are going incredibly fast (faster then my high proformance powerboat!) I must admit my favorite team this year was Team Kuwait and team Thailand... perhaps as they come from some of my favorite destinations ... or that they came from so far away. All the racers dedication is intense and quite fun to watch!

    Equipment: a really FAST Jet Ski, money, a helmet, a wet suit, a life jacket, more money..... ahhh you are going to need a sponsor

    Go Jump in the Lake!

    by basstbn Written Feb 17, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Water sports are king here - swimming, boating, water skiing, and especially jet skis. The lake is 40 miles long, but can still get crowded on weekends.

    Equipment: Bring your own, or rent anything you need for local suppliers.

    Boating on Lake Havasu

    Boat Docks

    Lake Havasu City exists because of Lake Havasu so boating is very important here. There are boating docks all around the lake including some right by London Bridge.
