Lake Havasu Field Office

The Lake Havasu Field Office oversees nearly 1.3 million acres of public land. The area includes more than 140 miles of the lower Colorado River. The field office boundaries include portions of Arizona's La Paz and Mohave counties, and California's San Bernardino County.

Recreation is a major program for the area's 10 million annual visitors. In addition to water sports, visitors can enjoy hiking, biking, camping, rockhounding, wildlife viewing, hunting, fishing and off-highway vehicle adventures. Five wilderness areas and one wilderness study area provide opportunities for solitude and enjoyment.

Additionally, the field office manages five Areas of Critical Environmental Concern, one river segment suitable for Wild and Scenic River Designation, and one backcountry byway.

The Lake Havasu Field Office is part of the Colorado River District.
