Havasu Falls is just one place you cannot miss when traveling to the Lake Havasu, AZ area. There is so much to do from camping to hiking to boating, you have to pack well so that you can enjoy everything you want to.

Here is a suggested list of what you should pack so that you do not have to research what to bring before you go. I know that when I first went, I had to scour several websites and reviews of the area to figure out just what to bring. I have already done this work for you, so you can make sure to bring just what you need to enjoy backpacking, camping and more without leaving anything important out.

The items I am listing below are items that I have already brought with me on several trips. These, from my opinion, are items that you cannot do without.

  • Clothing
  • Shorts and nylon pants along with a swimsuit
  • Wool or synthetic-blend hiking socks
  • Water shoes
  • Sandals
  • Supportive hiking boots
  • Cotton T-shirts
  • One or two long-sleeved fleece shirts
  • Rain jackets and pants

A wide-brimmed sun hat for summer and a warmer hat for spring and fall (Also, bring light-weight gloves and long underwear for these seasons!)

For camping gear, just pack the essentials as you normally would, but don’t forget a good:
  • Backpack
  • Tent
  • A set of trekking poles
  • A lightweight sleeping bag and sleeping pad
  • A camping pillow
  • A clothing sack
  • A portable stove with fuel
  • A Book of waterproof matches
  • A set of camping cookware and dinnerware
  • Water Bottle
  • Headlamp with extra batteries
  • And plenty of sunscreen and bug repellent



  • Energy bars, trail mix, dried fruit
  • Electrolyte drink mixes
  • Instant oatmeal, granola, or cereal bars
  • Bread, tuna packets, chips, fruit and dehydrated backpacking meals

I also suggest bringing along a hammock, if you have the space, as well as a mosquito net, hiking gaiters, a star chart and of course, a camera or a charger for your smartphone.
