This was our first stay at Crazy Horse Campgrounds in Lake Havasu City, Arizona. I have read other reviews and had a good idea what to expect.
Most of the reviews I've read said the campground is an older campground and could use some major upgrading and renovation. Those reviews were accurate.

Most of the picnic tables are old and weather beaten and need replacement.
We stayed at the beach ("I" section) and found that the sites were littered with trash and cigarette butts, which is inexcusable since there are plenty of trash cans available for use. The campground must be a draw to slob campers. The sites are in dire need of cleaning.
The beach sites have water and electric service only, no sewer. This is understandable considering how close the sites are to the lake. A holding tank pumping service is available (for $10). The pump truck stunk, so we referred to it as the "fece-mobile". (Yes, I know there's no singular word for feces. But what the heck?)

We didn't use the restrooms or showers, so we don't know what their condition is.
The pool (which includes a jacuzzi) area looked nice and clean and the store was well stocked.

I found the staff to be friendly and helpful. Despite the trash and cigarette butts, we enjoyed our site location (just across a road from the beach) and would stay at Crazy Horse Campgrounds again.
It is, we found, the only campground with a jet ski and boat rental service on premises (I believe it is a separate business entity from the campground).
The camping fee was a reasonable $40/night.
My grade: C+.
If renovated and upgraded, the campground has a lot of great potential as its location is perfect.
