Fountain Hills was developed in the 1970s by Robert McCulloch, the chain saw tycoon, who also developed the city of Lake Havasu. As a promotional stunt McColloch dismantled a London bridge and reconstructed it at Lake Havasu. His idea for Fountain Hills was a little less ambitious. Fountain Hill’s claim to fame is a park with a pond of reclaimed water and a fountain that shoots water 560 feet in the air for 15 minutes every hour. Unfortunately the fountain does not operate on windy days so we missed seeing it.
An accessible, mile long, paved trail circles the lake.
RVs will fit in the lot. Park 33.60098, -111.71455
