Catttail Cove State Park

Cattail Cove State Park
Yesterday we drove 15 miles south to the next Arizona State Park on shores of Lake Havasu to Cattail Cove State Park.  Cindy Smith is now the head ranger here.  She was the ranger who originally hired me to to do trail maintenance at Buckskin Mountain State Park years ago. That job morphed into leading trail hikes and then bird walks.  Jeanette worked for her in the office.  Later I led bird walks for her at Lake Havasu State Park.  Cindy graciously comped us a site here, and also another site for tomorrow night at Buckskin Mountain State Park.  Cindy started her new position here at Cattail Cove this past summer and leads a very impressive up-grade to the park.  They now have new docks and a white sand beach. But the biggest change in the works is the expansion of the park.  The Sand Point Marina next door lost their lease and Cattail Cove is expanding and upgrading.  They are redesigning the area and will be adding camping cabins to the RV campground and dock area as well as expanding the beach area.  This was an enjoyable stop for us.  The campground is extremely clean and quiet.  And of course it was great to see Cindy again.  If you are considering volunteering at a park, Cindy is one of the best to work for.
