Lake Havasu is a large reservoir behind Parker Dam on the Colorado River, on the border between California and Arizona. Lake Havasu City sits on the lake's eastern shore.

The lake's primary purpose is to store water for pumping into two aqueducts.
Lake Havasu is well known for its recreational fishing and boating, which bring in 750,000 visitors a year. Fishing tournaments are often held on the lake, where bass are the main catch.
