LAKE HAVASU CITY, Ariz. – The Bureau of Land Management’s Lake Havasu Field Office will begin a parking lot improvement project to enhance recreational use at Take Off Point Day Use Area later this month, to include repairing, sealing and striping.
As a result, access and use of the site will be temporarily restricted from Sept. 26 to Oct. 5, in order to ensure safety during construction work.
“These site improvements are part of the BLM’s efforts to enhance recreation opportunities for local residents and visitors to Lake Havasu,” said Jason West, Lake Havasu Field Manager. “While we recognize the construction may cause a temporary inconvenience, the site improvements will ensure a much nicer public recreation experience as we head into a popular fishing and boating season.”
There are other boat launches on Lake Havasu that the public may utilize during construction. A free boat launch can be found at Site Six Launch Ramp on the western side of Pittsburgh Point in Lake Havasu. Most other boat launches on Lake Havasu require a fee and include Havasu Springs Resort (closest to Take Off Point), Lake Havasu State Park, Cattail Cove State Park, Lake Havasu Marina and Crazy Horse Campground.
Take Off Point Day Use Area is located approximately 30 miles south of Lake Havasu City, Ariz. on Parker Dam Road off of Highway 95 just before the Parker Dam.
For information about the site or construction, please call the Lake Havasu Field Office at 928-505-1200.
