Lake Pleasant, AZ High 94 Low 72
We left Kingman and continued down Highway 93 to just past Wickenburg where we turned onto Highway 74. The last time we took this route, construction was the name of the game. Not this time. We sailed right along with nary a stop.
There are two RV parks at Lake Pleasant. One is a private RV Park. We spent one night there and will not go there again. Any place that charges extra for animals is not going to get my business more than once. If I have to pay extra for the girls, then I would expect the resort to be doing the pick up duty. Sorry, that’s a real pet peeve of mine.
The other park is a Maricopa County Regional Park. It has beautiful sites that look out over the water with water/electric and a dump station. The sites are $25/night with a 14 day stay limit.

We are here because on Saturday morning Jim had a guided fishing trip scheduled. (Love those Groupons.)
The fishing trip was a great success. These fish are called stripers (striped bass) and are almost as good eatin’ as walleye. They are now in our freezer as filets.
Wild burros wander around Lake Pleasant. They are beyond cute – BUT – they are really noisy at night when they are outside your rig braying and it’s 2:00 a.m. I’ve learned to sleep with highway noise and trains running along side the RV parks, but I haven’t mastered sleeping through the braying and the coyotes singing.
Scooter is very happy to be back in the desert where she can lay her old body on the hot rocks and soak up that sunshine. (I can so relate.)
