Parker Strip Report
# Trailers Stickered

June 2014 represents the second month of Parker Strip “sticker” numbers - since the focus of the campaign is on California RV Parks and Campgrounds, we expect the high percentage of boaters to have CA plates.

June report does not include any results from the July 4 th weekend.

Trending: Lake Havasu is reporting a record number of boat launches (both on Memorial Day and July 4th). The primary reason for the influx of boaters to Lake Havasu is being attributed to the severe California drought condition. California fresh water lakes are now at record lows in the north and south – Lake Nacimiento is at 19% capacity, Folsom Lake is at 47% capacity (and is essentially closed to boaters), San Antonio Lake is virtually gone (only 4% remains), Lake Perris is down 32 vertical feet (less than 50% capacity), Lake Castaic is at 46% capacity and Lake Mead is now at its lowest water level since 1937.

As the summer season progresses and no rain in sight, boaters will continue to come to Lake Havasu and the lower Colorado River for their boating recreation. Boaters are also recognizing that California lakes are beginning to enforce much stricter regulations and inspection for AIS.


OUIs Down in Havasu

Arizona Department of Game and Fish conducted their first boating OUI stop in late June.

Initial reports (unofficial at this time) indicate that OUI arrests were down by approximately 50% from the same month a year ago.

LHMA continues to promote “Designated Operator”, a campaign encouraging boaters to assign at least one person on-board to remain sober and be responsible for operating the watercraft.
