Top Five Spring Break Destinations at  Arizona State Parks and Trails

Top Five Spring Break Destinations at  Arizona State Parks and Trails

Because there is so much to choose from, we’ve narrowed it down to our top five spring break state park destinations. All you need to do is pack up the car, hit the road, and explore.

  1. Arizona’s West Coast: The Colorado River is a popular spring break destination, but we have some hidden gems to show you! Swimming, boating, fishing, and hiking are all options at the four river parks, with camping on the shore and white sand beaches! Pick a spot at Lake Havasu, Buckskin Mountain, Cattail Cove, or River Island state park for your break.
  2. North-Central Arizona: For cool spring weather, head up to Dead Horse Ranch State Park for RV and tent camping, plus awesome camping cabins right on the Verde River. From there, explore nearby historic parks or venture north to Slide Rock and Red Rock state parks, to soak in the sun and hike in the famous red rocks.
  3. Patagonia Lake State Park: If you’ve never visited this park, you’re in for a treat! Patagonia Lake sits nestled in rolling mountains of wildflowers and cactus, with a gorgeous beach, boat-in campsites, camping cabins with excellent sunset views, and plenty of wildlife watching. It’s the perfect place to explore.
  4. Picacho Peak State Park: March is peak wildflower season, and with the rain and snow the state has gotten over the winter, Picacho Peak is alive with color. Test your hiking skills with a strenuous expedition to the top of the peak via Hunter Trail. Your reward will be a sprawling view in all directions.
  5. Kartchner Caverns State Park: You may have heard of the famous caves here, but did you know there is also a campground – with cabins, hiking trails, and an internationally recognized dark sky for stargazing? Reserve a campsite and stay for awhile, then check out park activities, book your cave tour, and have an amazing time!
