That means ensuring that your watercraft meets all of the regulations for motorized and non-motorized watercrafts for your home state. Remember, both Arizona and California share jurisdiction of the Colorado River, so boaters should be familiar with watercraft regulations for both states.

Lake Havasu State Park has a large designated swimming area located at the day use beach covered with beautiful white sand, but swimming is allowed along the shoreline. Safety is always our biggest concern, so before you head into the water, here are some tips to help keep you safe:
- Swimming is allowed along the shoreline, but some areas may be rocky. That's why we recommend comfortable foot cover and a light mat to put under your towel if you plan to swim outside of the designated swimming area.
- Do not swim near boat ramps or docks.
- The temperature of the water in the Colorado River can vary from temperate in the shallows to near-freezing in open water. if you're concerned about temperature drops in the water, be sure and bring an insulated swimming outfit, like a thermal swimming suit.
- In all situations, swimmers should exercise caution. There is no lifeguard on duty, so swimming is at your own risk.
