Lake Havasu Lighthouses: Replicas of Famous Lighthouses Around the U.S.

Lighthouses around Lake Havasu City

12 News Arizona spotlights Lake Havasu's lighthouses

When one thinks of lighthouse locations, they rarely consider a landlocked, desert state such as Arizona for their location, but it just so happens that Lake Havasu City is home to more lighthouses than any other city in the entire country.

These scaled-down replicas are actual functioning navigational aids built to the specifications of famous lighthouses on East Coast, West Coast and Great Lakes. More than eighteen can be seen on the shores of the lake. Most can be hiked to while some are only accessible by boat.

This massive collection of lighthouses was originally started for safety purposes. The Lake Havasu Lighthouse Club, a non-profit group of independent citizens dedicated to the preservation, improvement and promotion of Lake Havasu and the City, wanted to make the lake a safe place for night boating and fishing.

Yet, instead of just settling on simple and mundane lighthouses that could be cheaply produced, they took pride in their development and chose to pay homage to the famous lighthouses in the U.S. by making smaller replica lighthouses.

All lighthouses were built and are maintained by the folks at the Lake Havasu Lighthouse Club. These fully-functional replicas of famous lighthouses make an already adventurous boating experience even more beautiful and unique.

All of the lighthouses on the west side of Lake Havasu are replicas of famous lighthouses on the West Coast, while the east side consists of East Coast replicas. The lighthouses around the island are all replicas of lighthouses from the Great Lakes.

As per the coast guard's navigational regulations, lighthouses on the west coast use a green beacon, while east coast lighthouses use a red beacon. Lighthouses with a flashing amber beacon signify safe harbor lights for emergency use only. Lighthouses are just one of the many unique and interesting attractions on Lake Havasu.

One way to see over a dozen of these replicas of famous lighthouses in one sitting is with the Sunset Charter & Tour Co. which takes passengers aboard the Canyon Cruiser Kon Tiki on a two hour narrated tour every Wednesday between the months of October and May. For a list of all the lighthouses that can be hiked or driven to, stop by the Visitor Center in the English Village.
